A pair of mama cousins, Knikka and Korie, have just expanded their shop of carefully selected, conscious baby and child products. We think it will become the epicenter for an entire community of like-minded parents and their kids. In addition to cloth diapers, Green Toys recycled goods and Life Factory glass bottles, you can head here for a weekly Nursing Circle and a Homebirth Support Group. The class and workshop schedule will grow to offer topics like CPR, first aid, positive parenting and newborn basics, plus demos on cloth diapering and making baby food. Art, music and dance classes for kids are in the works, too. And where else would one find a lending library of baby carriers for test driving? It’s a haven for mindful parents. nurturenest.com See our complete Town Guide to Niantic/East Lyme here.
