Welcome to BELLIES & BABIES BOUTIQUE
People and a place supporting Natural Parenting and Work-At-Home-Moms/Dads. Located in Bay View at Well-Rounded Maternity Center, the boutique features a large selection of cloth diapers and diapering accessories, as well as resale maternity clothes and diapers. If you don’t know where to start, consider taking a cloth diapering or babywearing class. Gift registry and gift certificates also available.
We work closely with the Milwaukee Babywearers, a greater Milwaukee area nonprofit group made up of diverse parents who love babywearing. There are many great resources online, but there is nothing like being in the presence of Babywearing caregivers to be able to learn from each other, make friends, and work together to build a community. We offer a Babywearing Basics Class on the 4th Saturday of every month at 1pm. Additionally, we host one of the Milwaukee Babywearers LEARNING LIBRARY events on the 4th Friday at 2pm.
Cloth Diapering Supplies
We carry a great assortment of diaper service-quality prefolds, fitted diapers, all-in-ones; pocket diapers, inserts and liners, training pants, wet bags, soaps, lanolins, cloth safe diaper creams and sprayers. We carry products from GroVia, bumGenius, Bummis, Snappis, Thirsties, OsoCozy, Rock’n Green, PlanetWise, Best Bottoms, Lusa Organics & more. Not sure which “system” to go with, attend a Cloth Diapering class, as seen on Fox 6 Wakeup (2/9/12). We also have many pre-owned diapers being sold on consignment.
Maternity Clothes Resale
If you are on a budget, we also have a number of resale maternity clothes. This includes nursing tops, tanks and bras. Done with pregnancy for good– consider selling your gently used clothes on consignment. Our consignment rate is 50% of what you mark your item for is returned to you. We mark the items, sell them, and send you your check every other month. We do reserve the right to donate any items that did not sell after it has been out for it’s full season.
We carry HABA toys, amber teething necklaces, as well as local made baby teethers & teething neckalces, and LuSa Organics baby & child products.
Items for mom include LuSa Organics post-partum herb baths, Willow Pads reusable cloth menstral pads, nursing pads, nursing covers and more.
Pregnancy Photography, Belly Casting, and BlessingWays
Pregnancy is such a wonderful and unique time in your life. Photographs, belly casts and BlessingWays are beautiful ways to remember your pregnancy forever. Come in and view samples of photos and photographers. Buy a belly casting kit and do one yourself, or set up an appointment and we’ll do it for you. You’re not pregnant but your best friend is–then think about having a BlessingWay instead of a traditional baby shower. We’ll help you, or do it for you at the Center.
Home Birth Kits
If you are planning a home birth, you probably have a list of supplies that your midwife has requested you get. We can put together a kit of supplies specific to your midwife, so you get exactly what you need and nothing more. Pick it up, or we’ll deliver.
