LLL Mtg--Our Growing Nurslings

Hello Mamas!

How is your nursing relationship changing as your baby moves towards (or through) toddlerhood? At this 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, August 22 @10:15am
