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. 

Pre Booking

At present we are limited to 15 attendees, so please ensure you book in advance.
