Old Saybrook Mother Baby & Toddler
A family business
Mother Baby Toddler is a family business. We are the Jantzen family. I’m Candice and I’m the owner of the store. My husband Kelly was named after Clint Eastwood’s character in the movie, “Kelly’s Heroes.” Kelly retired from the Navy after 20 years of service.
We have three children, Magdalena, Victoria, and Elizabeth. I had my first child two years before Kelly retired from the Navy and we bought a home here in Connecticut. Three years later I had Victoria who is a crazy two and a half year old now (2021). Then came Lizzy who is teething at the moment! So, I had my children a little later in life you could say.
I opened Old Saybrook Mother Baby Toddler in May 1st of 2021! It’s been great and the best part is we all work together. Things that really make me happy are pre-k and elementary school. The school is walking distance from my store.
After Kelly’s retirement, he started to work at General Dynamics/Electric Boat. To help our extended family at General Dynamics/Electric Boat and the Navy we offer discounts to military and employees of General Dynamics/Electric Boat. We are excited to continue work and play in the community.
