Blogging NYT: Postpartum Retreats

We’ve written about hotels that offer “babymoon” packages but yesterday’s NY Times piece caught our attention: postpartum retreats for new parents. The featured bed and breakfast is equipped with a changing table and an around the clock lactation consultant.

The suite, called the Mommy Nest, helps new parents adjust to sleep deprivation and breastfeeding for $500 per night. The on-call lactation consultant supports the new parents when baby awakes by doing things like changing diapers and teaching new breastfeeding positions.

What do you think of these postpartum retreats? A good gift idea for new parents or a waste of money?
