Albany-- A new baby sparks a new business in Albany.

"Make Room for Baby" is a store with baby items ranging from furniture to clothing.

For the Goodin Family, their newest family member, Parker, was the inspiration behind the store.

Parker's mom, Melissa, says she was having a hard time shopping for his nursery, "I mean if it wasn't for me having been pregnant and having to go through the process and asking other people where did you go, they were going on line and they were having to drive to the bigger cities, then we wouldn't have realized there was a need here in town."

Make Room for Baby is on Dawson Road, in the Gold's Gym shopping center.
