Open For Business: Bump Boxes

Delivers products for new moms, run by a growing family

PEORIA, IL - The last time we saw Christine and her family, her business Bump Boxes was in its infancy. Since then she's been doing a lot of well, growing. 

"I'm actually due with baby number 2 in about 4 days, so along with the growing business yeah we're having a little boy we're really excited" said Christine Deehring, co-owner of Bump Boxes in Peoria.

A new family member, and a new milestone for her business.  Bump Boxes delivers new and expectant mothers natural products for their pregnancy and their newborn. 

"Our moms love the baby side cause they get kind of a mix of mom and baby products so yeah it's a lot of fun for them" said Deehring.

And just like the stork --they drop the bundle off right on your door step. 

"Pregnancy you know it's a fun time, but it can be stressful you know it can be long, so it's nice to get that package every month" said Deehring.

For her team, it's no longer a small labor of love. Christine and her husband had to hire additional staff to keep up with demand, and now ship internationally. 

"Every month it's just getting bigger and better, so it's been a lot of fun scaling it and especially with the team that we have now, our team is awesome and they've been able to handle it. It's just been amazing to see everybody grow and change and get ready as we just continue to grow" she said.

Christine is the perfect guinea pig for her products, testing them on herself and her daughter.

"You know the business started with her, so it's like it's really fun to see you know like her grow up and then along with the business as well it's really fun to see that coincide."

The labor pains their growing business faced have paid off. Leaving them with a worldwide following, and a company centered on the importance of family.
