Babymoon

Oh Baby - Great Connecticut Hotels for a “Babymoon”

Whether this is your first child or your fifth, you know that once baby comes home, that “alone time” for parents is almost non-existent for a while. Preparing for delivery, or even going through the adoption process, can be so stressful on a relationship. Babymoons were invented for just that reason. Like honeymoons, they are a chance for the couple to relax, reconnect and even rekindle romance. But if you aren’t up for a long flight to an exotic destination, consider one of these Connecticut destinations for a weekend or midweek escape with a little pampering before baby arrives. Ask about “Babymoon” packages that may include experiences like dinner for two, spa treatments and other special treats!
