✨Breastfeeding Support Group!! Join us TOMORROW for December's Breastfeeding Support Group with our Board Certified Lactation Consultant @beverlysolow . ❤️ 👉🏽What can you expect at these meetings?
🌙At support meetings, the discussion is driven by whatever questions and concerns mothers have while they sit and nurse their babies. Questions usually center around how to get more comfortable latches and I provide hands-on assistance with positioning and latch-on. We also usually talk about how to know when a baby is feeding well and how to encourage sleepy, nursing babies so mothers can also get more sleep!
I bring a digital baby scale, so that mothers can weigh their babies. I evaluate breastfeeding in the context of good weight gain, and the first priority is that babies get enough to eat.
Pregnant women are welcome at these meetings and will get to see good latch on practice and recognize the difference between sucking and swallowing at the breast. In addition to the breastfeeding support, community building happens at these meetings, at a unique time in a woman’s life. It’s important for new mothers to be able to get together and
complain- and to know that they are not alone and things will get better! Exchanging contact info is encouraged. Sometimes groups form that continue meeting until the kids go off to school! ✨Find out more/register via the link in our bio!
