Mother Nurture, Lexington’s natural parenting boutique, officially closed for business at the end of January. Parents still requiring many of the services Mother Nurture provided can find help and products elsewhere in town.
Blossom, the children’s and maternity clothing store on Euclid Avenue, will now carry the nursing bras Mother Nurture previously sold, as well as other nursing tops and covers.
Baby weight checks, latch-check clinics and lactation consultations will be provided by Baby Moon, the downstairs neighbor of Mother Nurture at 2891 Richmond Road.
Breast pump sales and rentals are still available through VDK Turning Point on South Broadway. VDK also sells nursing bras and other breastfeeding supplies.
