Latch & Learn is now available online!
Join trained peer volunteers on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00-11:00am as we host a virtual meet-up for breastfeeding parents to connect, ask questions, and learn from the experiences of one another.
Due to popular demand, we have added a second series to our Latch & Learn topics! Offered every Thursday at 1:00pm, 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 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!
Return to Work**
Are you breastfeeding and returning to work/school soon? Are you wondering how breastfeeding and your job will work for you and your baby? Are you considering weaning, pumping or hand expressing? Come and learn some tricks about how to make the transition back to work/school while breastfeeding easier! In this session you will learn about your rights at work, breastmilk storage, and how to prepare for this new chapter in parenthood! **this session is offered once every 6 weeks
