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.
We have three informal meetings a month and one playgroup, all are free and open to all women and their young children.
Have you ever felt like your baby might be colicky? fussy? high needs? Or do you dread the question from well-meaning grannies at the post office: "Is s/he a Good Baby?" Many breastfeeding mothers are surprised by how "needy" our babies are...until we compare notes with other families!
At next week's meeting we'll talk about how our babies might not match our (or society's) expectations. We'll discuss what kind of myths and misconceptions are floating around about babies and breastfeeding, and how to remain confident in our parenting choices. We'll also share techniques we've found to help our babies and ourselves move through some of the tougher times.
There will also be time to share breastfeeding questions, concerns, and successes!
See you at 10am Tuesday, June 20
