LLL - Playgroup

Hello Friends!

 It's time again for the monthly LLL playgroup! On Tuesday we'll be in the Humphrey's room in the lower level of the Main Library in downtown South Bend, where there is plenty of room for crawlers to crawl, big kids to play, and mamas and babies to cuddle, nurse, and chat. Feel free to bring toys to share or pop upstairs to borrow books and toys for the morning! And those of you with tiny babes or babes still in utero, please know that this playgroup is for you too! Support from other mothers is what we're all about :). Robin will be waiting to greet you so that you'll know you're in the right spot!

 Tuesday, February 6th between 10 and noon

LLL Meeting: Babywearing! New Location!

Hello Mamas!

The 4th Tuesday LLL meetings will now be held at our new location, Bittersweet Branch Library.

What do you love about wearing your baby or toddler? What type of carrier have you always wanted to try? Is there a tricky back or side carry you need demonstrated? At the next La Leche League meeting some of the more experienced babywearers in our group will be ready to demonstrate and assist with hands-on practice. Bring your carriers and try ours! We'll have ring slings, pouches, knit & woven wraps, soft structured carriers, and more.

Of course we always have space for your breastfeeding questions, concerns, and successes.

Looking forward to seeing you!

Hello Wonderful Mamas!

 At our next morning meeting we will be discussing that precious commodity for all parents--Sleep. There are as many sleep philosophies and set-ups as there are babies. Come share ideas of what has worked for your family, struggles you face, and an open heart for commiseration.

 We're also looking forward to hearing your breastfeeding questions, concerns, and successes.
