The idea for Kickee Pants came to Aerin Nicole while on bed rest with her second son. She felt that although a clothing company cannot hope to change the world, it could strive to create something that would support those who would celebrate these same ideas by providing clothing that is created and designed with a sense of love for the children who will wear it. Her baby boy was a kicker and this kept her awake at night. In the middle of one sleepless night, she thought about how one day we would look back at this trait and miss every second of it. She thought about how parenthood is made up of these small moments of recognition and love and how important it is to enjoy the qualities that make up each of our children. KicKee Pants became the nickname for her son, and in turn the name of the company she would launch in honor of that reminder that he gave all of us, to appreciate the small moments we would share together.
