Infant Resources in the Triad

By Katie Moosbrugger

Being a new mom is never easy, and we all know how daunting it can be to learn the ropes. That’s why we thought a directory featuring resources for new moms in our area would be a great help. Luckily, there are a ton!

Below you will find 17 different categories dedicated to helping new moms get the support and services they need. From diapers to daycare –  and from meet ups to music programs – we’ve got you covered. If you know of a service, store or group that you think should be added to this list, please email me at Katie@TriadMomsOnMain.com and we’ll get it added. You will always find this new directory listed our Directories page here, and it will continue to be updated.

Attached Parenting & Baby Wearing

Triad Tot Toters

Baby Wearing International – promotes bonding, supports breastfeeding, can help combat postpartum depression, makes caregiving easier, and can be a lifesaver for parents of high-needs children. Babywearing is the practice of keeping your baby or toddler close and connected to you as you engage in daily activities through the use of one of a variety of types of baby carriers. It is a traditional practice in many cultures that is not widely used by modern industrialized societies, but it nonetheless has many benefits for both children and caregivers.

Piedmont Triad Kinda Crunchy Moms
Cloth diaper, extended breastfeeding, gentle parenting, attachment parenting, water birthing, organic foods and all that good crunchy stuff and maybe you vaccinate, formula feed or supplement and other “uncrunchy” things too

Triad Crunchy Goodness
A Natural Living & Attachment Parenting Haven. A community of parents (mostly mamas at this point, but everyone’s welcome) who strive to attain the ideals of peacefully raising our children, using attachment parenting techniques to create strong bonds, eating whole food diets of organic and local products, opting for home products without synthetic chemicals, and relying on natural remedies to treat common ailments before resorting to modern medicine.

After your baby eats, they will burp baby, change baby if needed, and settle baby back down to sleep. They will even happily bring you a middle of the night nursing snack while you feed your baby! You wake up feeling well rested, happy and ready for the day ahead. More details in the link.
