Are you a new nursing mom and looking for one-stop shopping for all of your nursing needs? Well here you go. The Milky Way is a fabulous nursing boutique with two convenient locations: the Morehead Medical Plaza on the CMC campus (perfect for hospital visitors to run in a pick up a presh baby gift for the new mommy) and the Twin Oaks Shopping Center in Dilworth (you’ll be happy to hear that they recently moved downstairs in this shopping center so it’s much easier to get to for expecting mommies or mommies with little ones in a stroller). The Milky Way carries everything you need as a nursing mother including the best Medela breast pumps that you can rent or purchase, My Brest Friend nursing pillow (the ONLY nursing pillow in my opinion, don’t even waste your time with a Boppy), groovy Hotslings baby carriers, an incredible selection of nursing bras, Mustela creams, super-trendy Fleurville and Stork Sak diaper bags (see my fave in the photo) LilyPadz nursing pads and even Gripe Water for colicky babies.
If you aren’t nursing, don’t think that you can’t shop in this boutique. They have some of the cutest baby duds I’ve seen. They carry several local lines from some of the savviest “mompreneurs” in Charlotte. I love supporting moms with a passion! One line that I was most impressed with was Just Impressions with hysterical t-shirts for little ones. Two of my favorites boasted the following taglines: “All mom is saying is gives peas a chance” in a pea green flavor and “What goes on in Preschool stays in Preschool!” I have a feeling I’m going to need two of those for my twins! Some of the other boutique lines include Sweet Potatoes/New Potatoes, Zutano, Kissy Kissy, Small Paul, Deux par Deux, Pedipeds, Robeez and many more. Love this shop!
