20 Questions with Little Sleepies Founder Maradith Frenkel
We’re all spending most of our time at home these days and you know what that means— jammies! We’ve stocked up on the coziest jammies as our new daily uniform and one of our go-to brands is the buttery soft label, Little Sleepies.
Founded by mom of two Maradith Frenkel, Little Sleepies has quickly garnered a loyal following (including celebrities like the Kardashians, Chrissy Teigen, Haylie Duff, and more!) in just two short years. The modern prints, delicious fabric, wide range sizing from preemie to big kid, and above all else, A+ functionality make this sleepwear brand one of the best on the market.
We sat down for a quick chat with Frenkel, putting her on the clock for a fun series of 20 questions, including her favorite kids movies, favorite local shop, and even the apps she uses most (hello, Postmates!).
