Since launching in November 2015, Romper has published thousands of articles that speak to millennial moms of different races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, and economic profiles. Unfortunately, the photos available to us to illustrate our posts aren't always as representative of that diversity as we'd like. That's why we recently began taking our own stock photos featuring real millennial families doing things they actually do with their kids and using products they recognize. In case you want to know where to buy the baby gear in our photos, we're providing the full credits below.
Thankfully, the parenting space is its own family, and great brands were willing to loan or donate items that would help us better portray parenting in a way our readers recognize. Romper received product loans from Giggle, a baby gear retailer and registry, and Chicco, a baby brand that covers all your parenting needs, and filled in the gaps with products purchased at BuyBuy Baby, a literal one-stop shop. Romper is so thankful to these brands for helping us continue our mission of creating authentic, informative stories for young parents.
From the big items, like cribs and high chairs, to the smaller stuff, like bottles and toys, the baby gear used in Romper's stock photo shoot is all available for purchase, and there's something for every budget. Check out the links below!
