LLL Playgroup!

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:) 
Jessica, (mama to Juniper and Georgia) will be waiting to greet you so that you'll know you're in the right spot!

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.

LLL mtg-Our Growing Nurslings

How is your nursing relationship changing as your baby moves towards (or through) toddlerhood? At next 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, December 20, 10am
