meeting: our older nurslings *new location*

Now that the weather is consistently beautiful, let’s take these meetings outside! Please join us at a new location on Friday, 27. May 2016 at the Heritage Woods Playground, located on Woodlawn Drive across the street from the Vineyard Church (where we have permission to park). We will be there from 10am-noon. There is a picnic shelter for shade and some cute play equipment; we can let the older ones play while we chat and nurse. 🙂

The focus of this meeting will be older nurslings.

It can be surprising how different the breastfeeding dynamic changes as Baby gets older and takes one more step towards eventual weaning. Each new stage brings new joys and challenges, and we need our support network more than ever during these times. Parents who’ve been there: come share your experiences and ideas about older baby/toddler breastfeeding and weaning. Pre-parents or new parents: what questions or concerns do you have about breastfeeding an older baby, or weaning in general?

Please also bring any general breastfeeding questions or concerns you may have. Our weekly meetings are a haven for breastfeeding families, where we can boast and vent, laugh and cry, and learn from each other’s successes and troubles.  Always come with your mind and your ears open!  :)

meeting: birth & becoming a mother

Please join us on Friday, 13. May 2016 at the Wesley United Methodist Church from 10:00am to 11:30am. You can park at the west entrance at the back of the church, and enter the building just past the church playground. The entrance has a sign labeled “church office.” Once inside, walk straight until you see our La Leche League sign at the room labeled “Parlor.”

The focus of this meeting will be birth & becoming a mother.

Whether we look back on our birth experiences as beautiful, satisfying, disappointing, or traumatic, one thing is certain: we need to talk about it! Labor, birth, and the transition into motherhood can affect us very deeply, and it seems that each time we tell our story, we are able to process the event just a little bit more.

And our transformation into Moms can be just as varied. How were those early days? How is it now? Do you feel you were always meant to be a mother? Or maybe you can’t quite shake that “awkward mama” feeling? Need to connect with others who have been there? Come ready to share your stories and be ready to support other moms through these powerful topics.
