Our group holds drop-in style meetings on the FOURTH Wednesday of the month at 10:00am and again at 7:00 pm at the Panera Bread on Merrill Road in Pittsfield. Join us for one of our “Breastfeeding Cafes!” Nurslings welcome.
We try to follow a series format for our meetings, meaning that we discuss four topics over the course of four monthly meetings, then repeat the series. The topics are:
- The Advantages and Benefits of Breastfeeding
- At Home with Your New Baby: the Family and the Breastfed Baby
- The Normal Course of Breastfeeding- Avoiding and Overcoming Difficulties
- Nutrition and Weaning
There is time for discussion around the topic as well as time for moms to ask any other questions they have. The beauty of the meeting lies in hearing other moms’ experiences and having their support. Everyone brings something different to the table and what has worked or not worked for them. Take what you need, and leave the rest.
