VISIT US

LATER

DATES & TIMES:
3rd Thursday of each month
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
LOCATION:
Private Home (email for address)
Briarcliff Manor, NY 10510

Meetings are usually on the third Thursday of each month at Cara's house in Briarcliff Manor. If we need to have the meeting on another day because of inclement weather, a scheduling conflict, or to observe a holiday, we will send an email and post the schedule change on this page, and on Facebook.

 

Bringing your nursing baby is always recommended, but moms are welcome to attend meetings with or without their nursing child. We greatly appreciate the support of our male partners and other male family members, and so we welcome them at our special topic meetings (date and times to be announced periodically).

Moms only need to bring whatever makes them most comfortable. Nursing during the meeting is not necessary, but it might be for baby, so bring what is needed to nurse comfortably with other nursing moms.

Light snacks, coffee, tea and water are provided at each meeting.

NEXT MEETING:

November 21, 2019

10:00 AM

 

EXPLORE

ON YOUR OWN

Hand Expression

Underestimated and underutilized, learning how to hand express breast milk can often relieve pressure to help baby latch, relieve pain from engorgement, unplug ducts, increase supply, and help to heal damaged nipples.

Ways to Soothe Baby

La Leche focuses on breastfeeding, but we also encourage families to come up with a list of other ways to soothe baby for those fussy times when breastfeeding seems to fall short. Check out some tried and true ideas at the link below. 

Feeding Cues

Breastfeeding success relies on the nursing couplet being in sync with one another.

Recognizing the most common feeding cues can open the path to communicating with your child for an easier more enjoyable breastfeeding experience.

Storing Pumped Milk

There are many reasons a nursing mother chooses to pump breastmilk for her baby.

Using and storing that precious milk safely is paramount to maintaining mother's supply and protecting a

well-nourished baby.
