“This is a big step forward for the growth of Childhome” says Cédric Rodrigues – Head of Sales. “The partnership with Béaba will allow us to further expand our business in countries where we are currently less active such as China, South-East Asia and the United States. On the other hand, we are complementing our collection with 500 new Béaba products.”

Béaba and Childhome both share the same values of innovation, design and vision of the childcare market: to simplify parents’ lives” says Julien Laporte, CEO of Béaba Group. “I personally want to thank Nathalie and Stefan Aerts for entrusting Béaba with the leadership of this very beautiful brand with its strong growth and solid performance.”
