post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Has anyone visited this new natural baby boutique in Chesterton, Indiana yet? It's located inside a health food store, within a room in the back of the store.

This is some of the stuff they have:
prefolds, Thirsties, Fuzzibunz, Loveybum wool, Bummis, natural creams, sprays, Planetwise bags and detergents. A few brands of cloth training pants (waterproof), and a selection of cloth menstrual & breastfeeding pads. There are various baby carriers – Ergo, Moby wrap, Upmama & Sakura Bloom slings, amber teething necklaces, Kleen Kanteen bottles & sippy cups, HABA wood teethers and Sophie the giraffe. Bobux shoes are expected soon.

The web page is new yet, motheringbynaturecenter.com and the store has only been open a couple of months. They encourage you to try on baby carriers and will order stuff for you.

It's located inside …
Nature’s Cupboard Health Food Store
757 Indian Boundary Rd. STE. 4
Chesterton, IN 46304
OPEN: Mon -Fri 10-6 & Sat. 10-5

Oops, the first post talks about Chesterton, Indiana. That location is closed and we have moved into 900 Sq. feet of space in Valparaiso, Indiana housing a boutique with a seating area to nurse babies, weigh them, and change them!

 

On Wednesdays, we have a chiropractor who specializes in pregnancy, certified in the Webster Technique.

 

A doula and homebirth midwife are often present to answer questions.

 

We have NWI resources for holistic care regarding pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, and more!
