Breastfeeding in the park

Thursday 12th May
St Andrews Park Bristol BS7
10:30 – 12:00

We’re holding a “pop up” support group this month. As with any of our meetings, this is a chance to ask questions, meet up with other mothers who’ve been through similar experiences and get support from our LLL Leaders (Breastfeeding Counsellors).

We’re meeting in St Andrews Park, enter through the Sommerville Rd entrance and aim for the picnic table just by the (closed) paddling pool. 

There’s a play area for toddlers and older children to explore, and toilets in the main park a couple of minutes walk away. We suggest bringing a picnic blanket or folding chair. 

There is parking on the surrounding streets. By Bus, there are a number of routes stopping on Gloucester Rd, then it’s a short walk up the hill to the park. 

Mums with babies and toddlers of all ages are welcome to join. 

All our meetings are free, but we ask that if you are able to 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 GBs very own magazine.

Do I need a freezer stash?

LLL Bristol meeting 10:30 – 12:00

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

Our next meeting will be at Avonmouth Community Centre. Do come along and join us for some face to face support.

This month our topic is ‘Do I need a freezer stash?’

It can feel really reassuring to have that bit of expressed milk tucked away “just in case”. This month we’re talking about expressing. When is it useful? And what might you need to keep in mind?

As always there is plenty of time to talk about any other issues that mums bring along on the day, so even if you don’t plan to express any time soon, do come along.

We’ll be indoors, it’s a lovely large room with plenty of space for us to spread out. Masks are not required, but please do wear one if you feel more comfortable.

Come and join us for a cuppa and a chat.

Exploring Solids

Exploring solids

LLL Bristol meeting 10:30 – 12:00

Thursday 8th July 2021

We’re holding an LLL Bristol meeting at Avonmouth Community Centre.  Do come along and join us for some face to face support.

This month our topic is ‘exploring solids’.

For most babies at some time around 6 months old they are ready to explore other foods alongside their milk. What signs do we look for to know when babies are ready?  What are some good first foods?  What if my baby isn’t interested?  This change can bring lots of questions, so bring them all along.  And of course as always there’s time to discuss any other issues which mums bring along on the day.

We have an event on our public facebook page: 

https://www.facebook.com/LLLBristol/

We have a room booked in case of wet weather, and we have access to the garden if the weather is nice.

There is plenty of on-street parking and Avonmouth Community Centre is very close to Avonmouth train station or various bus routes.
