Starting solids

LLL Bristol Meeting 10:30 – 12

Thursday 11th July

at Charlie’s house, 39 Hamilton Road, Southville, Bristol BS3 1PA

Our topic this month is ‘Starting solids’ 

Starting to add other foods alongside breastfeeding often leads to lots of questions. Come along this month as we explore this new phase.

Of course, if you have questions which don’t relate to solids, there’s always time to ask those too, or to get some 1:1 support for one of our leaders.

All our meetings are free, but we ask that if you are able to then please donate a couple of pounds to help us keep the group running. Another way to support the group is to join LLL GB, monthly membership is £2.50 and includes an electronic copy of Breastfeeding Matters, LLL GB’s very own magazine.

Embarassing Moments as a breastfeeding mum (and avoiding them)

LLL groups

LLL Bristol Meeting 10:30 – 12

Thursday 27th June 

at Avonmouth Community Centre, 257 Avonmouth Road, Bristol, BS11 9EN 

Our topic this time is ‘Embarassing Moments as a breastfeeding mum (and avoiding them)’ – otherwise known as “Why you only take a breastfeeding toddler bra shopping once” 🙂

We’ve all worried about something, whether it’s feeding in public, the occasional leak or the wonderful things our older toddlers and children say. We’ll no doubt share some of the more amusing and pass on some strategies for avoiding or styling out the rest. 

As well as our topic there is always plenty of time to discuss any issues mums bring along on the day, as well as our library of books and resources for you to borrow.

All our meetings and coffee mornings are free, but we ask that if you are able to then please donate a couple of pounds to help us keep the group running. Another way to support the group is to join LLL GB, monthly membership is £2.50 and includes an electronic copy of Breastfeeding Matters, LLL GB’s very own magazine.

LLL Bristol meetings May-July 2019

LLL groups

We continue to hold 2 meet ups, on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month. We have a new venue at Avonmouth Community Centre, our meetings here are ideal for those of you with older children as there are plenty of toys and space to play while we chat. Whatever the age of your nurslings, you are welcome to come along to either meeting.

Our meeting titles are just a starting point, don’t feel put off if it doesn’t seem relevant to you just at the moment. It’s often surprising where the conversations lead, and there’s always time to chat about any issues which mums bring along on the day. There will always be an LLL Leader around to talk to about any specific concerns as well as our extensive library on all manner of breastfeeding topics. 

Meetings are free and open to all, however if you are not an LLLGB member we ask if you are able to make a donation of £2. This helps us keep our Leader’s training up to date, run our library and keep the all important tea and coffee flowing. Becoming an LLL GB member is easy, just visit https://www.laleche.org.uk/join. Membership starts at £2.50 per month. As well as your local meetings you’ll receive regular copies of LLL’s Breastfeeding Matters magazine. 

All meeting are from 10:30 – 12. Some meetings are held in mothers’ homes, so we do ask that people keep an eye on the end times.
