It’s been 6 or 7 years now as my time as an influencer and I’ve been exposed to so many different brands which I am SO grateful for. Over the last few years, I started noticing that I wasn’t AS excited about big fancy brands or Louboutin shoes or anything … I mean, at one point I was really into the big brands but it didn’t feel AS good on the inside for me. I would get the most excited when small brands would reach out and send me their beautifully made items!!
Not only could I tell that their products were made with SO MUCH love and attention but their values also aligned with mine. Their products were also such amazing quality and for those reasons alone, it made me REALLY want to support them!! These little local mom and pop shops work so hard and put everything on the line to build something for themselves and I TOTALLY appreciate and respect all of the hustle they put into it!!
Over the last couple of years, I’ve discovered that things last longer when they’re made with LOVE. I’ve also been super lucky to have developed some really great relationships with quite a few small local companies and I’ve also been able to watch some of them really take off and grow which is so amazing to see!!
Now, before I dig in and share some of my fave Canadian baby brands with you, I should mention a couple of things. First off, no, this isn’t a post about politics … I know there’s a lot of stuff in the media lately and I have A LOT of amazing friends and partnerships in the States, I just wanted to share this blog as I thought it would be a great way to highlight some incredible local brands!
Secondly, the list that I’m about to share with you is ONGOING … it continues to grow on a regular basis and there’s probably a ton I haven’t mentioned below but I will try to keep adding to this as time goes on.
For now, here are a handful of my favourite tried, tested and true Canadian baby brands … in no particular order!!
When Leo was little you could almost always find him in something from Kewe Clothing!! Our faves were the milk and cookies leggings!! You can view more of our faves, here!
Bambi & Birdie
Bambie and Birdie carry the comfiest PJ’s for not only little ones but for adults as well!! They’re a hit not only in our household, but Tori’ too!! The boys are wearing the grey and white stripe classic set below and we also rocked the lemon set at our annual girls weekend this July!!

Hey Baby! Their stuff is my favourite!

Love! Just went through all these and so many great finds I didn’t know about thank you!!
Just a thought though.. my baby girl was a preemie (2 months early) and I could hardly find anything to fit her, she had to wear hospital onesies donated from the foundation for the majority of her stay because I had such a hard time finding stuff 🙁
Not an issue anymore now that’s shes grown but still wish more of these great brands made preemie sizes.
Hey! Trying to find the brand of outfit Leo had… I think it was a sweater/short set with popsicles for fudgesicles on it? Thanks!
Kickee Pants brand have the softest baby clothes ever for your baby girl! Matching hats/bibs—so cute
When shopping for baby winter clothing, you want to make sure your baby has several variations to wear. After all, it is a baby who is bound to throw up, spit up food, or spill all over that nice new sweater you just purchased. Your toddler should have a large collection of long-sleeved shirts, jackets, hats, sweaters, scarves, gloves and anything else you can think of.
Hi, have you tried the Helina Baby Carrier? Da absolute best, especially now being busy with a toddler. The ultimate comfort and care:)
What a great selection Jillian! Love that they are all Canadian businesses.

Hey Jilly Team!
I”m looking to find dresses for my flower girls/ jr. bridesmaids for my wedding this summer and I was wondering if you had any recommendations on Canadian made dresses? They don’t need to be fancy traditional flower girl dresses. It’s going to be an outdoor wedding, so casual /floral / cute work for the vibe we are going for! My dress is Canadian made, as are the bridesmaids so we would love to have the littles wear local aswell.
Thanks so much!
Where is Leo’s mustard winter coat from?? Great list btw 🙂
Romeo Milan! softest fabrics, and so comfortable!
Fieldday the label, they have lovely clothes, amd reasonable prices!
