I’m so excited about my new series, ‘Mom Boss Monday’! As a stay at home mom who has tried a good number of ‘side gigs’ to make some extra income, I know how hard it can be to raise a family and try to run a business! I have so much respect for all the mamas (and dad’s) out there who are working hard running their own business and taking care of their families at the same time!
Since I started blogging I have met some incredible people who sell some awesome products. I have featured many of them on my blog and Instagram already and I’m always on the lookout for things that will make your lives as parents easier and more fun.
If I could buy things from all of the small shops and business owners who have products I’ve fallen in love with, I would go bankrupt! I want to support these rockstar mamas in whatever way I can, so I decided to feature them here, on my blog!
Today I’m featuring a company called ‘Babysoy’ who sells beautiful baby clothes made from soy bean fabric! Read on to find out some more about this awesome mom and her business, and then head over to her website and check out the selection! Support this mama in her journey even further by following her on Instagram!

Eco-friendly baby clothing made with soybean!
How did Babysoy begin?
13 years ago, I first learned about the concept of toxins in the environment due to my husband’s very rare form of cancer. I was 4 months pregnant then with our daughter. 4 months later, I was widowed and soon-to-be single mom and since my family was back in Toronto, I planned on moving back until my long-term friend introduced me to this incredibly soft soybean fabric and asked if I wanted to stay in California and start something with him. I did and we launched babysoy when my daughter was about 5 months old.
Tell me about you! Where are you from? What do you love? How many kids do you have?
I was born in Taiwan, raised in Argentina, grew up in Canada and now am a true Californian! I love Jesus and I have 1 daughter. Sometimes I wished I had more…like 3 but you just can’t dwell on the what-ifs and what you don’t have or else you’ll miss all that you are given.
Does Babysoy support a cause? If yes, tell me about it!
I do! I support this soon-to-be established NGO that supports displaced people in Northern Iraq by providing medical, dental, English programs and other basic needs. Our family went last Christmas to serve them there and I’ve since left my heart there.
What is the most challenging part of what you do?
Figuring out just what it is that customers want!
What is the most rewarding part of what you do?
When I see those little newborns wearing our clothing. It will never grow old.
