Baby Things was created by two close friends – Maria Eldridge and Alice Greyer.
Both have children and have worked in the Baby & Toddler industry in the UK.
They put their heads together to create this website after finding most of the advice and help offered to mums to be about baby equipment was lacking detail and real trustworthiness.
About Maria Eldridge
Maria has a young daughter called Chloe and lives with her husband Alan (and two cats (Millie and Tom)) in Bicester, Oxfordshire in the UK.
She started working in retail from the age of 16 in a well-known national Baby product retailer. Since then she rose through the ranks to become a store manager and eventually a lead buyer.
Maria has been lucky to have been given the opportunity to participate in a number of large-scale national baby shows at both Excel & Olympia in London as well as the NEC in Birmingham.
This has given the opportunity to help many first time mums decide on what to get to suit their needs and desires when it comes to baby and family.
Maria has often been enlisted as a product tester for a number of international brands getting a hands-on look at many things before they hit the shelves. She has also helped to launch popular and innovative products nationally in the UK.
About Alice Greyer
Alice has two young children and lives in Witney near Oxford with her partner and dog Lucy.
She has worked with Maria for many years and the two have become close friends, frequently talking about their obsession with the latest baby products!
She works in higher management for a national Baby retailer and co-created Baby Things with Maria so she could help expectant mums find information she so desperately sought when expecting her first child.
Alice is passionate about parenting and was very proud to have won Manager of the Year in 2016.
‘We have spent a combined 26 years (and counting!) working for the Baby & Toddler industry in the UK. We believe in giving helpful advice to expectant mums as we both know how overwhelming everything can be when trying to find everything out for the first time.
