Fridababy's Chelsea Hirschhorn

Fridababy’s Chelsea Hirschhorn

Focused on innovation, Fridababy aims to provide parents with the tools to simply and efficiently care for their babies. Since CEO Chelsea Hirschhorn joined Fridababy in 2014, the company has expanded into a 15,000 square foot facility. That growth has led to Fridababy’s geographic presence expanding from 5,000 doors to over 25,000 doors across North America. In turn, accolades have come from NBC’s Today (“Stuff We Love”), BuzzFeed (“47 Parenting Products That’ll Make Your Life Easier”), and Vogue (“The Ultimate Baby Registry Master List”) alike.

Prior to taking over Fridababy, Chelsea was a New York City-based bankruptcy attorney at Weil Gotshal & Manges, in addition to a role as Director of Ancillary Revenue for the Miami Marlins. Her J.D. was earned from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. In turn, Downtown asked “the Baby-Gadget Guru” — a mother of two — for some New York restaurant recommendations.

Fridababy can be visited at, while Chelsea and the brand can both be followed on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook.

1) Babbo:

For the pasta tasting menu with a seat at the high top tables in the front, catching up with friends.

2) Chelsea Market:

After a session with the boys at the Chelsea Piers driving range or carousel, we walk over for lunch then stroll the Highline with our dessert in-hand.

3) La Esquina:

For very sentimental reasons — it was where my husband and I went on our very first date. It was pouring rain and the taxi pulled up to the corner and I looked at him like, “Are we really eating tacos in the window?” I’ve since learned to trust him implicitly!

4) Via Quadronno:

On the corner of 73rd & Madison, where I spent a lot of time escaping the downtown grind during law school; my parents were on 73rd between Park and Lex. Truly a more perfect cappuccino does not exist.

5) Bemelmans Bar at The Carlyle:

A classic New York City vibe, and somewhere we always stop for a drink and music session pre or post-dinner.
