Introducing...Koala Mom Essentials Maternity

New maternity line by Babies"R"Us now available online and in select stores 

TO August 10, 2017 by Taylor O'Donnell

Let’s be real. When you’re 7 months pregnant, you probably aren’t looking to get fancy when it comes to your wardrobe. Having great basics like comfy tees, cardigans, and leggings that can take you from a 9am meeting to an evening Netflix binge – and everything in between – is the goal, and We. Hear. You.

Enter, the Koala Mom Essentials Maternity line, perfect for the expectant and post-partum mom who is looking for affordable easy-to-wear basics to help stretch their (now) limited wardrobe. We chose a basic color palate of black, grey and white because it’s super easy to mix and match (and maybe wear those leggings two days in a row without anyone noticing).

“Our focus was on creating the essentials that every expectant mom would want to wear during AND after her pregnancy. We have expectant moms shopping with us all the time, so it just made sense to make things even easier by offering a true ‘one stop shopping’ destination for all her maternity and baby needs.” Kaia Canales, in-house designer of the line. As a mom to two boys herself, as well as 15 years experience designing for brands like Calvin Klein, Petite Bateau, and Old Navy, Kaia accredits her unique career foundation and large family (she has 26 first cousins!) for inspiration.

Wherever your day takes you, each piece is transitionable from dressed down, to dressed for a night on the town. We asked some of the many expectant moms around the company to take us through their day while modeling the line to show us how they incorporate the new Koala Mom Maternity Essentials line with their favorite pieces from home – check it out!

About Taylor O’Donnell: As a child, Taylor could generally be found with her nose in a book, coloring away in her notebook (and once on the wall—sorry mom!), or acting out epic dramas (ok, recreating soap operas…) with her stuffed animals -- anyone would agree that she certainly had an active imagination. As an adult, Taylor loves that every day, she gets to cultivate the imaginations of children through toys by working her dream job at Toys“R”Us! Well that, and being able to play with all of the hottest toys herself!
