LLL Bristol Meeting 10:30 – 12

Thursday 11th January

at Patience’s house, the Warden’s Lodge, Wills Hall, Parrys Lane, Bristol, BS9 1AE

Topic: Follow your heart

For many of us the reality of breastfeeding can be quite different from the expectations we had before our babies arrived. It’s always nice to reflect on where our breastfeeding has taken us and what we’ve learned along the way about ourselves, our babies and those around us.

Bring yourself, your little ones and, if you like, a healthy snack to share.

Meetings are free, but we do ask that if you are not a member of LLLGB you consider making a donation of £2, to help us keep the group running.

By taking out an LLLGB membership, from £2.50 per month, you will be helping us support mums just like you, and you will also receive copies of Breastfeeding Matters magazine. If you would like to take out LLLGB membership please visit: https://www.laleche.org.uk/join

The Warden’s Lodge is just to the right of the main reception, through the gateway marked ‘private’.

Parking: There is plenty of free parking (5 hours limit) on Saville Road alongside the Downs, then a short walk down Wills Lane.

LLL Bristol meetings Jan-Mar 2018

We continue to hold 2 meet ups each month, a series meeting on the second Thursday and a coffee morning on the fourth Thursday.

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. Meetings are held in mothers’ homes, so we do ask that people keep an eye on the end times.

Topic: Are you still breastfeeding?

Breastfeeding continues to provide your baby with lots of nutrients and of course comfort into their second year and beyond, but as our little ones grow up many families find the question “are you still breastfeeding?” crops up. So this month we’re sharing experiences of feeding our older babies & toddlers.

Bring yourself, your little ones and, if you like, a healthy snack to share.

As well as our topic for the month there is always time to discuss any issues mums bring along on the day, and browse through the library.

Meetings are free, but we do ask that if you are not a member of LLLGB you consider making a donation of £2, to help us keep the group running.

By taking out an LLLGB membership, from £2.50 per month, you will be helping us support mums just like you, and you will also receive copies of Breastfeeding Matters magazine. If you would like to take out LLLGB membership please visit: https://www.laleche.org.uk/join

Topic: My Child Won’t Eat

Breastmilk provides all your baby needs for their first year, but sometime in the second half of that year most babies are ready to experiment with adding some other foods.

So how do you know if your baby is ready? What makes a good first food? Are there things to avoid? This month we’re talking about all this and more.

Bring yourself, your little ones, and if you like a healthy snack to share.

As well as our topic for the month there is always time to discuss any issues mums bring along on the day, and browse through the library.
