(Formerly Breastfeeding Mothers Circle) Though nursing your baby is one of most natural acts, it can be challenging, especially during the early weeks as you recover from your baby's birth and adjust to new parenthood. If you have any concerns getting support immediately is one of the best way to help ensure a satisfying nursing relationship. In addition to finding solutions this is a great opportunity for you to connect, share and form friendships with other nursing moms and parents.
In this group not only will you get immediate help with whatever difficulties you're experiencing, and have your questions answered, but you will also find community support, have your experience normalized, and make friends.
This group is for: All parents who are nursing (breastfeeding or cheastfeeding). You are encouraged to bring your nursing child with you. We also encourage pregnant parents to come by before your baby gets here, so you can see what breastfeeding looks like and get a heads up on the kinds of issues that can arise. Pregnant people can attend for FREE.
Concerns that can be addressed include:
How to know if your baby is getting enough milk
Slow weight gain
Incorrect latch and causes (tongue tie, etc)
Sore nipples or breasts
Clogged ducts and mastitis
Dealing with oversupply
When and how to supplement
When you should pump
