Meet the Maker
White Dog Baby Company was founded by Danielle H. I grew up in Ontario cottage country, but moved to Hamilton, Ontario after high school. Hamilton is where I met my husband and we started our family - first with our white dog, Penny, and very shortly afterwards with our son!
I have always enjoyed artistic outlets, whether it was painting, knitting, crocheting, or sewing. No matter what stage of life I have been in, I could generally be found creating something!
The White Dog Baby Company was born from several inspirational factors: creating safe and comfortable products for my own baby boy and keeping myself occupied during the long days at home during the covid-19 pandemic. Maternity leave during a pandemic is no joke! Feeling grossly cut off from activities to fill our days, I was in desperate need of a creative outlet! As my son fell into a more regular schedule I found I had time each day to devote to a project. I began creating for my son and soon White Dog Baby Company was born!
My main passion is creating the baby and toddler nests. I have found them so useful in our daily routines. Having a safe and soft space to lay my son when I need my hands free has been so important and the Nest provides the ideal resting space! As my son has become more mobile, it is clear that he loves the Nest as much as I do. He just loves to sit in his nest and play with his toys.
Towel ponchos were created in an attempt to keep my little man dry after bath time - he is a serious wiggler! It worked amazingly well - no more struggling to wrap him up after his bath. Soon we were bringing the poncho with us to the pool and the lake because it was just so much more convenient than regular towels!
I hope you will love the products I make as much as we have loved them! Each piece is created as if I am making it for my own child - with love, care and attention to detail!
