Meets from 5:30-7pm the 2nd Wednesday of each month
Free for WWPeds families and their guests
Moms and breast or breastmilk fed babies of all ages are welcome
Breastfeeding is natural, but that doesn’t mean it’s always easy! As such, WWPeds is pleased to offer our families and their guests a monthly support group for mothers working to achieve their individual breastfeeding goals. Moms will have the opportunity to ask questions and get tips for overcoming challenges as well as celebrate their breastfeeding successes. Facilitated by Bonny, our board certified lactation consultant, moms will learn from and encourage each other knowing that they are not alone in their breastfeeding journey. From time to time, our doctors, nurse practitioners and other special guests may also join us as well so you can rest assured knowing that you are supported by your entire health care team at WWPeds!
Common topics of discussion may include:
- Easing sore nipples and getting a great latch
- How to know if breastfeeding is going well
- Making more milk
- Pumping and storing milk
- Preparing for the return to work
- How others can help at home
- Beyond breast milk – introducing complementary foods
- And many more!
