Hi. My name is Mika – I’m a mom, fashion designer and follower of Jesus. I’m originally from Philadelphia, but have lived in Boston and Miami too. I am currently living in central costal Florida with my 3 beautiful children, loving husband and quirky rescue cat. I have a degree in fashion design and have worked in every facet of the fashion industry from clothing inspection and manufacturing in NYC, to designing my own fashion line. In 2013 my husband and I moved away from everything we knew, including family, to Boston for a new job for myself and his continued training in the medical field. Fast forward and the most wonderful blessing of my life was born – immediately followed by calls to our family about raising our first child. Being so far from family with our first child, I struggled to manage my day to day life with a baby with colic.
For his first 8 months he wanted to be held continuously and I knew I would need a baby carrier that would be soft, safe and comfortable to wear all day (and often all night during the worst of his colic). I tried a few products but couldn’t find the perfect one – and that is when I decided to put my fashion background to work to create my own. My contacts in the fashion industry led me to a manufacturer who was as committed to the environment as I am, and equally as excited about the product. And thus the RBP ring sling carrier was created.
This sling made all the difference for my son and my family. From his colic, to traveling in the city, to teething, and everything in between, the sling has held him close to us, in comfort, style and safety. I started Resilient Baby Products because I wish I had this product since my son was born and I want other parents to have the same loving, nurturing bond that my husband and I have developed with our son through the use of our carrier.
Fast forward 4 years and two more kiddos, and we have used our RBP carrier for all three of our children. Since our first product we have launched our full lifestyle brand “Fox Rain Baby!”
Fox Rain Baby is an apparel and lifestyle brand for the entire family. Animal lovers unite as we bring you special curated pieces that feature our hand illustrated woodland characters from the Fox Rain “verse.”
Each character is based off of real life pets from our family. The star of the brand is Chungi the fox who loves to chase sun showers. He is inspired by our bold and self assured rescue cat of the same name. Your little ones can follow along with their favorite Fox Rain characters through our ever growing catalog of apparel, books, sensory toys, and home decor.
Fox Rain is a mom owned and operated company that is available online through our main website as well as several online shops such as Amazon, and Etsy. We are currently gearing up to offer our line in boutique shops as well as expanding our online shopping experience.
