Separating fact from fiction about everything breastfeeding!
It can be hard to know what information to believe when it comes to breastfeeding our babies and toddlers! Should baby be allowed to fall asleep at the breast? If feeding hurts is it likely because of tongue or lip tie? Do I need to night-wean? How do I get baby to open wide enough to get a deep latch? Am I supposed to feed off one side or both? What foods should I avoid if I'm breastfeeding? What do I do if my baby is struggling to cope with my fast/slow flow? Do I have to wean if I’m pregnant?
International Board Certified Lactation Consultant Anne Cullen will answer these questions and MANY more. You'll even have a chance to ask your personal questions, ensuring you walk away feeling confident about breastfeeding! This talk is perfect for you if you are expectant parents or currently have a breastfeeding child.
Tea, coffee and nibbles provided.
Doors open 6.45, talk begins at 7pm. Parking in the carpark out front or on street.
Tickets: $20 per person
