J.L. Childress Co. was created 30 years ago from one mother's needs. While trying to integrate her career as an Art Director for Disneyland with her desire to breastfeed her infant daughter for as long as possible, Jan Childress designed a tote bag to carry her breast pump (the Express Bag) and a separate, insulated bag with reusable ice pack (the DuffleCOOL) to care for the milk until she arrived home. She marketed the Express Bag and DuffleCOOL to other working moms. As sales increased rapidly, Jan worked around her babies' schedules to design and market additional products to meet the needs of active parents. Through hard work and determination, J.L. Childress has continuously grown over the years to become a leader in juvenile travel accessories both in the US and worldwide.
