Latch & Learn Series

LatchLearnConnect

Latch & Learn is available online OR in person!

Join trained peer volunteers as we host a meet-up for breastfeeding/chestfeeding/pumping parents to connect, ask questions, and learn from the experiences of one another.

Our IN-PERSON Latch & Learn sessions take place from 10-11am ET on Mondays at EarlyON | Roger St, and Wednesdays at EarlyON | Oak Creek. No Registration is required.

Our VIRTUAL Latch & Learn session is held Tuesday mornings from 10-11am ET. Registration is required below.

Due to popular demand, we have added a second series to our Latch & Learn topics! Offered every Thursday at 2:00pm, our “Latch & Learn Part II: Beyond the Basics” will cover questions that often arise in older breastfed babies. This series is open to everyone, though the content is aimed at parents of babies 3 months and older. Latch and Learn “Beyond the Basics” Information & Registration has moved to it’s own page!

Latch and Learn Topics Include:

Person to Parent
Adjusting to life with a baby and breastfeeding are HUGE learning curves. We want to support you through this adjustment and answer any breastfeeding questions that you have!

Latching Isn’t Easy…Ouch!
Latching and breastfeeding take practice! We can help you improve your latch, and show you new positions to breastfeed in! Mastered the latch but have other breastfeeding questions? Please join us!

It’s All About Milk Supply: Many parents wonder if their baby is getting enough! Come and learn how to build and protect your milk supply and learn about normal feeding patterns. We’re also happy to answer other breastfeeding questions!

My Friend the Moon… Nighttime Breastfeeding
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 are also happy to chat about other breastfeeding topics!

Coping with Crying
Feeling alone with a crying baby can make any parent overwhelmed; especially when breastfeeding isn’t “working”. 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 this and ask breastfeeding questions!
