LL Mtg--Babywearing!

**We will soon only be sending out meeting notices via Google Groups. Please join us at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/lalecheleagueofsb **

Hello Mamas!
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.

See you Tuesday, May 16 @10am
Sunnyside Presbyterian Church
115 S. Frances St.
