Local musts for nursing moms
| World Breastfeeding Week kicks off today—a perfect time, we thought, to round up New York’s best gear and gurus for nursing moms.
Best lactation consultant: Ayelet Kaznelson approaches nursing from a place of acceptance. She instructs breastfeeding clinics and prenatal classes at Tribeca Parenting, and offers private home visits as well ($250 for the initial session; $200 for follow-ups). 917.620.4068 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best convertible nursing bras: Bra Smyth’s seamstresses can convert your regular bras (even the sexy ones) into nursing bras by placing a special hook between the strap and cup. $20-$30 per bra. 2177 Broadway, 212.721.5111 or 905 Madison Ave, 212.772.9400.
Best mini freezers for extra milk: GE’S 5.0 cu. ft. freezer chest will fit comfortably in most New York apartments, and is available from Home Depot for $179 with free delivery. Alternatively, you can troll for rentals at Rent-a-Center.
Best acupuncturist: If the well is running dry, reach out to Juniper Wellness founder Sara Frohlich, who specializes in acupuncture and herbal medicine regimens that boost milk production, clear stagnation, unblock ducts, and ease mastitis. 119 W. 23rd St., suite 802; 917.549.0200 or email@example.com.
