Congratulations! You and your nursling are about to celebrate Valentine's Day in the Queen City! Yes, you can celebrate while nursing. Why not be pampered and treated like royalty! You have several options. Pumping is great if you and your special someone are looking forward to some time out alone. Find a trusted caretaker and off you go! Jewel and The Beanstalk is offering seatings as early as 5 pm for their Valentine menu. You could go out, eat, and be back before baby is down for the evening. If you are not yet proficient in pumping, don't have a pump, or don't want to pump Jewel and The Beanstalk is very breast feeding friendly! Bring baby along! Valentine's day at Jewel and The Beanstalk is byob.
La Carreta is also very breast feeding friendly. Celebrate! Have a margarita if you want! If you only have 1 or 2 drinks, avoid breast feeding while drinking, as well as for 2-3 hours after drinking baby will be fine.
Unwined is a romantic spot you and your honey could visit. Voted best date spot by Manchester's Hippo, you could snuggle into a table for two and share fondue while listening to live jazz.
Looking for special breast feeding specific gifts for the lactating women in your life? Mother and Child carries many breast feeding bras, breast feeding covers, and cool nursing bracelets! Want something even more meaningful? Check out Kandace Wright's creations at her jewelry site, Solielarana. She makes beautiful hand beaded nursing necklaces for baby to play with while nursing!
Roses are red, violets are blue, chocolate is sweet, but just might not do. Not while you are breast feeding anyway. Since babies 6 months and younger are more sensitive to the caffeine in chocolate you may want to wait until your cherub is a little older to indulge in Valentine's day goodies made with chocolate. If you avoided caffeine completely during pregnancy your baby may be even more sensitive.
Mothers of older infants may want to check out the organic chocolates available for Valentine's day at A Market in Manchester. Simply divine! Valentine's day in Manch-Vegas wouldn't be complete without a little something from Van Otis Chocolates. Stop by the store on Elm Street in Manchester before the 12th of February and enter their contest to win a sweet prize package!
Whether you choose to pump and go out or bring baby along you are sure to have a lovely Valentine's Day in Manchester, NH!
