Our Story

katie henson family and childrenKatie Baby was founded by Katie Henson. A mom of 3 boys (age 7, 5 and 3) and finally 1 girl (1 year), Katie worked in children’s boutiques on and off since the age of 14. Over the years she developed a passion for fashionable, high-quality children’s clothing and with the encouragement of her husband, decided to follow her dream of opening a shop of her own. In 2014 they began renovating the oldest historic building on Main Street in Fort Mill, South Carolina, one of America’s most beloved small towns, and Katie Baby opened in the Fall of 2015.


Katie Baby carries unique, top-quality children’s clothing. Having 4 children of her own, Katie has tried a plethora of children’s brands, and she refuses to carry a line that she doesn’t stand by 100%. Nearly all of the brands that Katie carries in her shop have been well-tested by her own children, and all stood up to the grass stains, wear and tear, and constant washes.


Along with a one-of-a-kind selection of fashionable children’s clothing, Katie Baby carries a variety of perfect baby shower gifts as well as items to complement your upcoming arrival.
