Who's behind the brand?
Hello, I’m Shelley, the founder of A Little Bit Dotty.
Having had a successful career in the City, when my first son came
along I knew that I wanted to quit the Rat Race and to take a step back
to spend time with him. Although I was fortunate to be able to be a stay
at home mum for a little while, by the time number 2 son came along
I knew that I needed to do something for my own sanity!!
I wanted to find a job that was flexible and would enable me to still be
able to attend all those important school events in my boys lives and so
"A Little Bit Dotty" was born. I am my own boss and love the freedom that
this gives me.
Why the name?
A light bulb moment in the bath while doing a crossword and enjoying a little peace and quiet after a crazy day with the boys and the name was born. We all know that having babies and children can drive you “a little bit dotty” Need I say more!
Why these products?
Parenting is tough. There’s no doubt about that. There is no rule book we just do our best.
I won’t lie, I found it really hard adjusting to my new career in motherhood. There were a mix of emotions – joy, contentment, frustration, boredom, loneliness and tears. That’s why at A Little Bit Dotty I have carefully selected those products that I love because they are either fun, practical or just a little bit different and will hopefully make life through the wonderful, crazy journey of motherhood that little bit easier to navigate – a gift for a mum you know or a treat for you because you deserve it!
So whether it’s a fun slogan bag to bring a smile to your face, beautiful jewellery to bring back your ‘sparkle and shine’, a teether to ease your baby's sore gums or a colour-in top to keep your little one entertained, I hope you find something you need and love!
