You founded a business! Tell us about your company. Our business is a bamboo kids pajama company, and it all began with the inspiration drawn from my two amazing sons. In our quest to provide the best sleepwear for children, we discovered that bamboo fabric has exceptional qualities that make it particularly well-suited for kids with sensitive skin, like those who struggle with eczema. This discovery was especially personal to us because my youngest son also faces the challenges of eczema.

So, when you choose our bamboo kids pajamas, you’re not only making an eco-conscious choice but also a thoughtful decision for your child’s sensitive skin. Our pajamas provide the utmost comfort, ensuring that children with eczema can enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep without discomfort or irritation.

We hope that our bamboo pajamas can make a positive difference in the lives of children and parents dealing with sensitive skin conditions. It’s our way of contributing to their comfort and well-being, and we’re proud to be able to provide a solution that genuinely cares for your child’s skin.


Meet the Momprenuer: Alexander Layne, A Gilbert-Based Kids PJ CompanyWhy did you want to start your own business?  I grew up in a hardworking household where my mom always worked tirelessly to provide for our family. Her dedication left a lasting impression on me, and I was determined to follow in her footsteps to ensure the well-being of my own family. 

This desire to provide for my family, just as my mom did, led me to seek a sustainable source of income while being present in their lives. 

Additionally, my younger son’s struggle with eczema ignited my passion to make life easier for children facing similar challenges. 

The dream of going into business with my mom, who has always been my pillar of support, was a driving force. This dream became a reality as we embarked on a journey to provide comfortable sleepwear for kids with sensitive skin. Our bamboo pajamas are the result of a shared vision, combining the comfort and care every child deserves, and our commitment to family, sustainability, and making a positive impact.

Tell us a little bit about your family! 

I’m a mom to two wonderful sons who inspired the creation of our bamboo kids pajama company. Their comfort and well-being have always been at the forefront of our mission. 

Additionally, I’m fortunate to have a strong partnership with my mom, with whom I founded this venture. Our shared commitment to family and sustainability has been instrumental in our success.

 Also, my husband, who works full time, has been an invaluable support in building our website and assisting with advertising. His dedication to our business, even while managing a full-time job, has been a testament to the strength of our family bonds.

 In essence, our family’s collaboration and support have been the driving force behind our family-centered business.

What was your motivation to pivot your career to being an mompreneur? 

As a stay-at-home mom, my primary motivation was being present for my children, cherishing their formative years, and ensuring their well-being. 

My younger son’s eczema struggles added a personal mission to the mix. 

Additionally, my close bond with my mom, a shared passion for sustainability, and the dream of creating something meaningful played a crucial role. 

Teaming up with her allowed us to leverage our strengths and experiences, making our venture a cherished family collaboration.

Becoming a ‘mompreneur’ was about balancing motherhood and entrepreneurship, blending personal experiences and a love for my family with a desire to create a meaningful, sustainable business. 

It represents a fusion of roles and aspirations, enabling me to make a positive impact in both my family’s life and hopefully the lives of others through our bamboo kids pajama business.

How do you make time for self-care in between all that you have going on? 

After a long day or week, my go-to unwind strategy is to ensure I get some fresh air. Even if it means a trip to the park with my family, being outdoors in the evenings is a non-negotiable for me.

It’s a simple yet effective way to clear my mind, reconnect with nature, and recharge my energy. The change of scenery and the opportunity to spend quality time with my loved ones while enjoying the outdoors make a world of difference in helping me find balance and tranquility

How has motherhood impacted you personally and professionally? 

Motherhood has sharpened my time management, adaptability, and problem-solving skills. Personally, it’s made me more patient, empathetic, and appreciative of life’s small joys. 

Professionally, it motivated me to start a business aligned with my family values, driving me to become a ‘mompreneur’ committed to both providing for my family and creating a meaningful impact in the lives of others through our bamboo kids pajama business.
