La Leche League of South Bend has several free, informal gatherings a month where we explore all topics related to breastfeeding: the good, the bad and the ugly! Whether you are pregnant and looking for information, a new parent struggling to learn the art of breastfeeding, or an experienced mother seeking support and camaraderie, we are here to help with information and support. We look forward to welcoming you and your 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
