LLL mtg-Our Growing Nurslings

**Starting in April we will be sending out meeting notices via Google Groups. Please join us at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/lalecheleagueofsb**

How is your nursing relationship changing as your baby moves towards (or through) toddlerhood? At this week's morning meeting we'll chat about nursing our babies into toddlerhood, and all the amusing and at times frustrating things that go with it! 

-Do you have thoughts about how setting limits with gentle discipline fit in to your current (and future!) nursing relationship?

-Are you curious about the weaning process--how to be gentle, respectful and gradual?

-Are you thinking about getting pregnant again but aren't sure whether you should wean first? 

-Wondering about nursing through pregnancy and continuing to tandem nurse once the new baby is here? 

If you are thinking about any of these issues, or have experiences to share, please join us at the next LLL morning meeting! And even if these topics aren't relevant to you right now, come enjoy the camaraderie, commiseration and support of other nursing mamas. 

And we always make space for any other breastfeeding concerns or questions you may have!

See you Tuesday, March 21 @10am

LLL Mtg-Making it Work

No matter what our lives looked like before kids, we all know our perspectives are vastly different after. And whether we go back to work after 6 weeks, 12 weeks, full-time, part-time, not at all, SAHM, WAHM, free-lancer, mompreneur, etc., we all struggle with balance and how to Make It Work. 

At the next LLL morning meeting we'll share ideas of how we have done this and issues we haven't yet solved. How do you fit breastfeeding and/or pumping into your new lifestyle? (Or how do you adapt your lifestyle to breastfeeding?!) How do you fill those long hours with baby? How do you divvy up household chores? Child care? How do you make sure you get the help you need? When do you take on new duties? How do you structure your days in a way that works for you and your child(ren)? We'll delve into all of this and more. 

And of course, we will have room for your breastfeeding questions, concerns, and successes.

See you on:
