Located in Boston’s historic Charlestown neighborhood, Mockingbird Baby & Kids opened its doors in June 2014. Mockingbird changed hands in March 2019 and is now owned by Charlestown mom Lauren Thompson. Mockingbird was Lauren's go to for her two girls, Evelyn and Amelia, and she is passionate about ensuring Mockingbird continues to be the go to source for all families in Charlestown and beyond!
Over the past three years, Lauren has realized her dream is more than the cozy shop, it is a place where conscious consumers can help raise conscious kids. Lauren has continued to evolve the store by curating products with an emphasis on earth conscious and made in the USA products, women founded businesses, minority founded businesses, and businesses that prioritize giving back.
Mockingbird is an active supporter of multiple non-profits working to make the world a kinder, more inclusive place for all. We're proud to support our local schools who do amazing work raising the next generation.

Furthering our commitment to the next generation, we strive to be as environmentally conscious as possible from the brands we carry, to the way we package your orders, to the way we recycle in store. We have taken a "no frills" packaging approach where the boxes, bags, tissue and ribbon we use is all recyclable. You may also see reused packaging for your shipments as we aim to increase the lifecycle of cardboard boxes.
