Milk bottles is an online children's boutique showcasing the very best of fashion, decor, homewares, gifts and acessories 


It is a pleasure to welcome Jenna and Milk bottles to the "My Pigeon Pair" flock.

So why does "My Pigeon Pair" LOVE milk bottles?
I love shopping. Unfortunately as a mother of two extremely adventurous children, shopping in store has lost its lustre.  SO I have turned to online shopping.  How great is it to browse, in the peace and quiet, with a coffee and no one pulling at your skirt!

Milk bottles has it all.
I initally stumbled accross milk bottles whilst searching for a bean bag chair for Master O.
I found the chair AND a gorgeous bloomer and tank set, the groovy gripper and Tilly and Otto (it was along night of oohing and ahhing)
I was instantly in love with their eclectic range of unique fashion, homewares, accessories and gifts.
Many products are handmade, all are high quality, but what really had me sold was the number of Australian created, Mummy designed products!  (and the great postage rates!)

milk bottles was originally started by Jenna's sister and was a site selling second hand designer clothes.  Jenna was looking for a way to have a career and be with her two boys (now aged 2 and 3) so when her sister decided to leave milkbottles for a new venture it was a match made in Mummy heaven!

So straight from Jenna herself...
Do you have a favourite milkbottles product? 
Everything on milk bottles I personally pick.  I only stock products that I LOVE. So all of milk bottles products are my favourites! If I really had to pick it would be the teepees.  They are such a classic play piece and have endless imaginative play possibilities! I love that they are bringing back old style play so kids are not  sitting in front of a computer. 
What do you love about having your own business? 
The freedom of being able to put my family first.  My work can be adapted around my family.
What does a typical day look like for you? 
My days are mainly spent packing orders,  updating the website, post office runs, and dancing around the house with my boys! 
Most of my computer work is done at night time once the kids are settled in bed and asleep, but most nights you'll still find me on the computer at midnight browsing madeit.com, esty and the internet for new items to stock. It's my form of shopping and its very addictive as most mums would know!
