    About First Child Safety

    About Us

    Who are First Child Safety?

    First Child Safety specialise in the supply of useful and innovative child safety products.

    What makes us different to other suppliers?

    • We are very proud of our customer service - thankyou so much for taking the time to read this. We will also take the time to help you if you have a problem and do all we can to resolve it for you.

     

    • We understand – we are both mums ourselves and have been there, we aim to offer products that we have used ourselves or have been recommended to us. Nothing can beat the magic of your first child going through those magical firsts, first steps, first bath and first moments together....but nothing can prepare you for the huge sense of responsibility you feel for your first child and it can sometimes feel overwhelming wading through hundreds of safety products.

     

    • We care – as Mums we have felt the joy of those firsts, but we have also experienced the pain of accidents and we want to do all we can to try to reduce those risks for other babies and toddlers. As a first time parent you want to make sure that you have done all you can to minimise risks to your precious child whilst keeping perspective and enjoying life to the full. We can't wrap our little ones up in cotton wool as much as we might want to but we can use products to minimise the risks of accidents and allow us to enjoy those magical moments.

    How we got started .....

    First Child Safety was set up by us….two Mums; Nicola Holmes and Sarah Izzard, both prior to having children, career women, but after each having our “first” child, our whole perspective on life changed. We soon saw just how many products were available for each new stage our children reached, we felt quite overwhelmed, and we soon realised so did a lot of other new mums and dads. Also our respective children went through a burn accident, convulsions and various falls which made us realise just how important safety is. This is when we saw a gap in the market for a business providing products and information focussing on these specific firsts e.g. First Sleep, First Steps, First Food etc. We started the business in March 2010 and to date we are so proud to have our own website up and running alongside our own Amazon and Ebay shops. We also have a Facebook and Twitter Page. We hold stands at local baby and toddler groups and have ‘mini shops’ at our local Tumble Tots group. We are constantly researching new products as well to ensure that we are doing all we can for our customers and bringing in the best quality products. We have met and had email comments from some wonderful parents and carers and received some fantastic feedback on our products which has really spurred us on, so thank you for that.

    Who are the First Child Safety Team?

    Nicola Holmes - cofounded First Child Safety and Mum to Sam age 5 and Lucy 2. Nicola’s son had convulsions due to overheating and so she had a keen desire to find out what products were available to try and prevent this happening to other children. Also, like most mums, she also experienced bumps and bruises to her son and again felt there was more that could be done to reduce the risks for others, and so enabling those precious firsts to be enjoyed to the full. Nicola’s strengths lie in accounts, systems, administration and business. She has been secretary for the North Yorkshire Branch of the CMI (Chartered Management Institute) for the last 7 years and whilst there gained a level 4 diploma in management. She has a strong head for business whilst also being compassionate and loves helping others.

    Sarah Izzard - joint owner of First Child Safety and Mam to Daniel age 5. With a background in health and safety, including 7 years working for a distributor of health and safety products where she obtained a distinction in the NEBOSH (The national examining board in occupational safety and health) General Certificate. Sarah is a graduate in Business Studies and has had a strong and fulfilling career in sales and customer services. Sarah is very passionate about First Child Safety, she felt that there is a definite need for a company who can focus on the safety needs of parents and carers through each of the different “firsts, especially first time parents. When Sarah’s son was 18 months old he had a burn accident and was burnt badly with hot coffee, so she is also very driven to help others all she can. The strong team behind First Child Safety have both experienced all those magical firsts, so have firsthand experience which they want to share with other parents, grandparents and carers and they want to help make you aware of products to help minimise the risks of accidents and allow us all to enjoy those magical moments.
