As a newlywed, my amazing husband and I naively skipped around California deciding where to settle into a home and start a family. We left all of our friends and family behind.
I believed that all we needed was just the two of us.
Don’t get me wrong, we make a great team and all but reality came knocking HARD when we had our first child… a daughter.
I tried working from home and balancing new mommy life. Truth be told, I was EXHAUSTED and after realizing just how far we had skipped away from our family,
And it was a CRAZY BAD experience. Oh, the no-shows and the countless nannies that sat on their phone while movie after movie played until we got home were too many to count.
No interaction whatsoever.
the most patient and kind and loving human and nanny. (I’m getting a sense of relief right now just typing this)
She truly transformed our lives into a more structured utopia where our kids were engaged, learning, and well cared for by someone we trusted…
and our laundry baskets were always empty!
We were able to do more date nights regularly and live a less stressful life. Mira not only cared for our kids, she cared for us all and honestly became a part of our family.
She helped organize our nursery when baby #2 (and later, #3) was on the way, plan so many of our kid’s birthdays, she even celebrated holidays with us.
And when my dad got sick and had to move in with us, Mira stepped right in, no questions asked, to look after him while I worked. When he passed away, Mira was there to mourn with us.
SHE HELPED US KEEP SMILES ON OUR KID’S FACES WHEN I DIDN’T HAVE THE STRENGTH TO SLAP A SMILE ON MY OWN FACE.
So that is what I want to give to other families. I want to make sure to help match families with support that will add relief, joy and consistency to their lives. I strive for Nanny Village to be the resource that families can turn to and trust to help them build their village.

California Baby founder Jessica Iclisoy has always questioned the status quo. While pregnant with her first child, she began to think deeply about how to live a healthier, more natural lifestyle. Shocked to discover carcinogens in products for newborns, Jessica set out to find a better option. There wasn’t one. Motivated by her frustration, she substituted unsafe cleansing and fragrance ingredients with high quality plant-based substitutes to develop her own recipe for a gentle, calming shampoo & bodywash. Word of mouth spread quickly, and soon California Baby was born.
Over the next two decades, the power of Jessica’s passion and the exceptional quality of her products grew California Baby exponentially, years before “organic” products became popular. Today, there are about 90 products in the California Baby range, including a collection just for kids (California Kids) and pets (California Fur Baby). Jessica continues to challenge the status quo, always pushing for better, more pure, and more sustainable solutions for our family and yours.
