Although we received much of what we used for our son’s first year of life from our baby shower, I have started to do a lot more shopping for TKB as he gets bigger and grows older. As part of my Buy Black initiative this year, I have been gathering tons of Black owned baby brands to support now and in the future. My team has put together a list of over 50 Black owned baby and children’s brands for you to support as well (details below), but here are 10 to get you started!
