We are La Leche League of South Bend and we have three informal meetings a month and one playgroup gathering.
We are a community of mothers helping mothers as we explore all topics related to breastfeeding; the good, the bad and the ugly! So whether you are pregnant and looking for information, a new mother struggling to learn the art of breastfeeding or an experienced mother seeking support and camaraderie, we are here to help give information and support.
The meetings are free and open to all women and their young children.

What are some good starting foods to give a baby?
How can you tell when you baby is ready for solids?
What are some handy snacks to give a toddler?
What are you favorite, simple, nutritious family meals?
Bring baby along and join in the discussion. We are also here to support you with any breastfeeding related questions or problems.

What do you love about wearing your baby or toddler? What has been challenging your babywearing plans? How has babywearing helped with breastfeeding and general bonding? 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 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.
See you on 10am Tuesday, June 24

These can be great opportunities to work on setting limits using gentle discipline. Respectful and gradual weaning is something we often think about at this stage, as well as dealing with questions of whether to continue nursing in public, and fielding questions and criticism from others.
And we always make space for any other concerns or questions you may have!
See you Tuesday, June 17 @10am
