A Cool Stool

Maternity

Parents accustomed to feeding infants know that putting your feet up and getting comfortable is critically important. A new Vermont-made nursing stool makes it easier to elevate your extremities. Plus, it's environmentally friendly. Woodworker Ted Kohn makes the stools in his Burlington basement workshop during breaks from his stay-at-home dad duties — he has two kids, ages 2 and 4. Each stool takes about 15 hours to produce and is made entirely from wood and finished with oil, milk paint, beeswax and water-based clear coat. Both the fixed-base and adjustable stools can be used during breast or bottle-feeding and will convert into a handsome bathroom step stool when you've traded the bottle brushes for toothbrushes.

Nursing Stool: Quick Brown Fox handmade nursing stool available through Etsy: etsy.com/shop/quick brownfoxvermont, $85-165. $15 off local orders.
