When you are unable to directly breastfeed…
There are some situations in which your baby/toddler may not be able to feed directly from your breasts. If this is the case, you can choose to feed her/him your breastmilk using another method.
Depending on your individual circumstances, other feeding methods may include use of a bottle, breastfeeding supplementer, spoon, syringe, finger etc. A breastfeeding counsellor or lactation consultant can help you work out what method may work best for you and your baby.
Today we are joined by Naomi, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. She will be discussing alternative methods for delivering breastmilk to your baby.
We welcome all mothers, fathers, children, pregnant women and family members. You do not have to be breastfeeding to attend. We all know that babies can be unpredictable, so we understand if you are running late and welcome you all the same!
We can be found in the meeting room of the Holland Park Library, which is on the Seville Rd side of the library, not the car park side.
If you are feeling up to it a plate to share for morning tea is always appreciated, though not expected.
Breastfeeding can provide immunity against a range of illnesses, but if you or your child/ren have signs of illness, or you suspect that they may be ill, please consider keeping them at home.
