Fidgety Feeders

LLL Bristol Meeting 10:30 – 12

Thursday 25th April

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

Our topic this month is ‘Fidgety Feeders’.

Lots of babies go through phases where they are easily distracted or wanting to pull your hair or clothes while feeding. It will pass, but we’ll be sharing our ideas of what might help until it does 🙂

Alongside our topic there is plenty of time to talk about any issues that mums bring along on the day. 

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 Meeting 10:30 – 12

Thursday 28th February

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

Our topic this month is ‘Nursing Manners’ 

This month we’re talking about those behaviours we’d prefer our little ones not to to do while feeding, whether that’s looking round the room while still latched one, twiddling hair/clothes or indeed the odd bite. What strategies have others found effective to teach their little ones what is and isn’t acceptable while feeding?

Whatever the age of your nurslings, you are welcome to come along to either meeting.

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.
