Hello everyone, I'm Becca, the mum behind Child of the Wild which launched in May 2021. Prior to opening Child of the Wild I ran my first business, Wilf + Wildlings (named after the gorgeous boy you can see in that photo!) where I made and sold my own range of baby and children's clothing, and was very lucky it allowed me to stay at home with Wilf for the first 3 years of his life. In 2020 we fell pregnant with our IVF miracle rainbow baby and after a really hard pregnancy I had to come to the realisation that it wasn't possible to keep up with the demand of cutting, sewing, packaging and posting everything myself. Sadly our beautiful baby boy Everett was stillborn on the 25th February 2021, but his profound loss has been the absolute driving force behind Child of the Wild, I'm doing it all for both of my boys.
Child of the Wild is a small business, operating from our little spare bedroom in sunny Yorkshire, but I have spent hundreds of hours researching brands, products and ethics to try and curate the perfect collection for both the eco conscious and the fashion conscious. It was also really important for me when planning this business to have a section for my fellow infertility/baby loss sisters. It can be such a lonely isolating experience so I wanted to collate a selection of beautiful, easily accessible items to mark milestones, congratulate or commiserate, and fill those hope boxes with special items to keep us going on the hard days.
I hope you find something you really love,
