Ronni Soled, mom to Amanda, a college junior, is in her 16th year of bringing moms together; she is the matriarch of the Moms-and-Babies Luncheons concept in New York City. Laura Deutsch, mom to Ava, 13 months, debuted her mothers’ luncheons in February of this year.
Now, the two women have joined forces. Ronni Soled’s New Mothers Luncheons
has merged with Laura Deutsch’s Baby Bites NYC
, to cover the waterfront with four luncheons a week at baby-friendly restaurants throughout the city. Deutsch will lead the luncheons; Soled and partner, Pamela Weinberg, will be frequent speakers and facilitators.
“Laura brings a new vitality to everything she does,” says Soled. “I love working with her and together we plan on coming up with lots of new ideas for new moms. Stay tuned!”
Baby Bites NYC will also continue its monthly dinner events for expectant moms, at Giggle Soho.
These two ladies keep up a steady pace of activity. Deutsch just moved to Westchester from the Upper West Side, but she is commuting into the city to lead her lunches Monday through Thursday, and is busy organizing the first of her regular Friday luncheons in Larchmont as well. Soled, when not helping new moms network, works as the party/special events coordinator at Little Maestros music school, and, as a volunteer, runs a weekly new moms’ discussion group at New York Presbyterian Hospital. In her down time, she can be found at her computer, emailing daughter Amanda at Cornell!
Baby Bites NYC luncheons, $35 per mom, include guest speakers and raffle prizes. For more info on locations and times, contact Ronni Soled at (212) 744-3194, Laura Deutsch at (646) 258-3907, or go to www.babybitesNYC.com.
