There is no replacement for homemade children’s clothing and products. There are companies that will mass-produce them, but they lack the love and care that only a family business can provide. One great family business is Mama Rens, who make adorable baby products, and take orders so you can get whatever design or pattern you want! Mama Rens will be at the New York Baby Show on May 14th and 15th, at Pier 92.
The nation’s biggest show for expectant and new families, the New York Baby Show is a wonderful family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler. From top products to trusted parenting experts, the New York Baby Show welcomes thousands of expectant and new parents from New York City, the Tri-State area, and beyond!
Tickets to the New York Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual.

For someone unfamiliar with Mama Rens, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Mama Rens is all about making life with littles a bit easier and more enjoyable. We offer lots of completely customizable baby-wearing accessories ranging from suck pads and hoods to easy-to-wear diaper bags.
What is the background of Mama Rens? When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
Mama Rens is a completely family-run business. It started shortly after our eighth child was born after making some bags and accessories for her. It started with just one order and has been growing rapidly since.
What are the most popular and/or newest services and products from Mama Rens?
We’re always on the lookout for new patterns to try out and awesome new embroidery designs. We offer our customers the ability to tell us what they want and we can usually make it happen. From very complex character hoods to intricate embroidery designs, if you can dream it up, we will try our best to make it happen!
4) What sets Mama Rens apart from other homemade baby products on the market?
As the owner and seamstress of Mama Rens, what sets us apart is me being grandmother-taught. If I don’t like how something came out I will take it apart and do it again until it is awesome! There is not a sweat shop making your items, it’s me, and I want you to be happy with your items!
What can parents expect from Mama Rens at the New York Baby Show?
Mama Rens will have lots of physical products to choose from such as hoodie hoods, embroidered hoods, reach straps, diaper bags, and teddy bears along with some exclusive suck pads just for the show! Parents will be able to make purchases or set up a custom order slot with the shop to have the accessories of their dreams made just for them!
