our story

Milk: Contemporary Baby Store is the place to visit if you have (or if you are about to have!) special small people in your life. We offer a carefully curated selection of the very best baby and parenting products including beautiful furniture, gorgeous clothing, bed linen and fun and fabulous toys and gifts.

Business partners Malcolm Cleugh & Jenni Saunders first opened Milk in 2005, after Mal and his wife, Nic, struggled to find good advice and quality products when they were expecting their first baby. Over the years we have moved to a bigger store, we have opened an extra store, welcomed new babies and faced some challenges, not least an earthquake and most recently a worldwide pandemic. Despite the changes and challenges, our ethos has remained the same – to provide the best and most useful products and to offer superior advice and customer service.

Due to the COVID outbreak we are currently operating online only but please pop us an e-mail (hello@milkstore.co.nz) or message via our website or Facebook page if you have any questions or if we can help in any way.

customer service

The Milk team genuinely want the best for you and your wee ones so we will always give you honest and helpful advice and nothing is too much trouble. We are passionate about the products we sell and we love our customers. It is a privilege to meet people when they are newly pregnant, watching bumps grow and meeting gorgeous new babies. Before long we are fitting first shoes and helping choose first birthday outfits. We equally love helping people choose gifts for special small people in their lives.

our products

All of the products we sell at Milk have been carefully selected. Jen is an avid shopper and loves doing her research before making purchases, no less when she is buying for the store. In order to make ‘the cut’ products must be useful, ergonomic, ethically produced and good quality. Of course it just so happens that most of our products are also rather gorgeous. Having practical but lovely products when you are raising a wee one not only makes life a little easier but also bring some extra joy.

info for parents

Becoming a parent is an exciting time but it can also be rather daunting and advice can come from all directions. To make things a little bit easier we are compiling a ‘what you need’ list, a helpful and realistic checklist of what will be useful in the first few months of baby’s life. Watch this space, it will be here soon!
