At Home With Minibrook Founder Nina Westbrook

To say Nina Westbrook is a busy woman would be an understatement. In addition to juggling three children (Noah, 3, and twin girls Jordyn and Skye, 22 months), she also serves as founder and CEO of Oklahoma-based boutique The Little Ark, and just launched the adorable children’s label Minibrook, which is filled with gender-neutral pieces in a modern array of muted hues (and a splash of tie-dye!). When she’s not doing all of the above, the Los Angeles-based mom (whose husband is NBA All-Star Russell Westbrook) is also keeping it real on her popular Instagram feed and putting her Licensed Family and Marriage Therapist (LFMT) degree to good use by lending mental health advice through her website and online speaking engagements.

Luckily, even with all she has going on, we were able to grab a couple of hours with Nina and her precious kiddos (all decked out in Minibrook!) to talk about starting a business during the COVID-era, her upbringing (she was the sole sister amongst 3 brothers!), parenting philosophy, raising three kids who are three and younger, and more!

Speaking of the baby and toddler juggle—especially when it comes to diapers—Playtex Baby partnered with us to tell Nina’s story. The makers of the beloved Diaper Genie (which now comes in 5 pretty hues), provided some products for Nina’s family to take for a spin—the Diaper Genie Complete, Diaper Genie Quick Caddy, and tiny cups and plates embellished with Paw Patrol and Peppa Pig graphics—which you’ll notice while taking a tour of Nina’s beautiful home. Enjoy!
