You, Baby and I is about connecting with moms through personal stories, events and an interactive platform that gives moms the opportunity to be rewarded for what they love doing – sharing their opinion.

The company was founded in September 2013 by Vije and Shan Vijendranath who saw an opportunity in the market when they became first-time parents.

You, Baby and I run by Shan Vijendranath is a well-established blog in the influencer community. Winning several awards over the years and collaborating with some of the biggest brand in South Africa like Disney, Mattel, Takealot.com, Cotton On etc.
