In 2000 the store is divided in 2: The part with strollers, clothing, bottles keeps the name Baby-Cars under new owners. Katia Vermeire (of course with the assistance of her parents) and her husband Koen Van den Eynde take over the part with furniture and the brand Théophile & Patachou. Thus, Baby & Co was born.

This division remains till December the first 2008. The complete store is reunited under the name Baby & Co with the Vermeire-Van den Eynde family in charge.
