10:00 am: Virtual Latch and Learn: Nursing at Night + Coping with Crying

September 19, 2023

Nursing at Night + Coping with Crying:

Breastfeeding at night has many hidden benefits for you and your baby. Show up in your PJ’s as we discuss nighttime breastfeeding and tips for getting rest. We also know that feeling alone with a crying baby can make any parent overwhelmed. Learning to understand your babies crying as a type of communication takes time and patience. Join us (even if your baby is crying) to talk about both of these common parenting experiences, receive support, and ask any other breastfeeding questions you’ve got!

Join our virtual group meet-up on Tuesdays as we rotate through popular breastfeeding topics, answer your questions, and connect as a group.
To ensure the privacy of participants, advance registration for each session is required here
