Although something about the name makes me giggle, there's a cool new thing going on in Wake County. La Leche League will be hosting a breastfeeding cafe every Friday at the Itsy Bitsy Baby Spa in Cary. Here are the details:
lunch to have all your breastfeeding questions answered at no cost by
counselors. All women are welcome, with
or without your babies and pregnant women are especially encouraged to
attend. Please feel free to bring your lunch.
What: an informal drop-in meeting where breastfeeding questions can be
answered and women can meet other breastfeeding moms. Feel free to
bring your lunch, or purchase something at Panera Bread next door.
When: noon to 1:30 p.m.
Where: Itsy Bitsy Baby Spa, (at the
intersection of James Jackson and Cary Parkway, next to Panera Bread)
Who: Pregnant women, breastfeeding women, any women with breastfeeding
questions, and babies.
Still though, I think the informal setting of lunch and the possibility of one on one help is a great idea. It was too overwhelming for me to ask questions and get help in the group setting the first time I attended.
There is also a new toddler group in Wake County. If you are a breastfeeding mama of a toddler who is one year old or older, you are welcome to join a cool group of moms who promise not to ask, "So how long are you going to do that?" The group meets every fourth Monday at 10:30 AM at the Unitarian Church on Wade Avenue in Raleigh.
All meeting details can be found on the La Leche League website.
