J.L. Childress Co. J.L. Childress Co. is the leading provider of travel accessories made for children. The company was established 30 years ago when Jan Childress needed a solution to pursue her career in Disneyland and while continuing breastfeeding her newborn. Then, a tote bag with a separate insulated and ice pack was born. She marketed her creation and was a hit to working moms. An increase of sales was achieved and thus Jan offered other products to meet the needs of busy moms. Today, Jan’s creative and practical solution to her problem has turned into a company that is known as the top provider on travel accessories in the United States and abroad. Jan’s tote bag is now known as the Express Bag while the ice pack is called the DuffleCOOL. Their product line expanded to car seat accessories, stroller accessories, nursery accessories and diaper bags. The brand takes pride in product development to ensure that every parent’s needs and expectations are met.
