J.L. Childress Co.

J.L. Childress Co. was created over 25 years ago by Jan Childress, who designed a tote bag to carry her breast pump (Express Bag) and a separate, insulated bag with reusable ice pack (DuffleCOOL) to care for the milk until she arrived home. It was a hit, and as sales increased Childress designed additional products to meet the needs of active parents. The company’s product development continues to be centered on highly functional designs at value-driven prices, for today’s practical parenting.

"Childress is the ONLY universal, juvenile travel accessories brand that provides solutions for traveling with car seats, strollers, booster seats and more," states Sara Gray. "Our goal at J.L. Childress is to offer products that make traveling with infants and children a little easier, without breaking the bank. Our Product Development Team listens carefully to on-the-go parents and develops products to directly meet their needs."

Products include its bright red Gate Check Bags that protect car seats and strollers from dirt and germs, and the top-selling car seat travel bags including the Ultimate (fully padded, "hands-free" option) and Wheelie (wheels with durable base). Additional items include the Standard & Dual Stroller Travel Bag and Padded Umbrella Stroller Travel Bag, which help with transporting or storing a stroller.
