About the business: Yawning Mama launched in August 2018 by a stay at home mom to bring happiness and comfort to new mothers- because moms want cute things too! We are a home-based, mom-owned small business located in Reno, NV. We are CPSC compliant and following labeling and flammability laws. All items are handmade right here in our smoke-free, pet friendly sewing studio.
About the owner: I’d always been the crafty sort and loved hand making things – jewelry, cross-stitch, painting, dream catchers – you name it! In high school, an elderly friend, Aletha, taught me how to hand sew cathedral quilts. My first one took an entire semester to make, and that was with her stitching most of it! (My second is still in the closet, unfinished, haha!) After having my daughter Astrid in 2017, I began making her clothing as well as nursing clothes for myself. All of a sudden, I began getting compliments on the uniqueness of my creations, and was even being asked if people could have some for themselves! So, after several months of research on the labeling and business requirements of handmade clothing, Yawning Mama was born.
What we offer: A one stop online shop for all of your postpartum needs. Nursing clothing, baby/toddler clothing, mom and baby sets, baby shower gift sets, cloth menstrual pads, nursing and toddler pillows, nursery decor and babywearing accessories!
