Breastfeeding 911: Help for Hurdles
Birth and Beyond, Seattle
This class is a triage style group where you can learn about achieving a comfortable latch and have a consultant observe you feeding your baby. However, it is not as in depth as a one-on-one consultation. You will be able to measure your baby’s intake using our scale and discuss the challenges you are having breastfeeding as well. Many mothers will not need additional care, but if further treatment is recommended, you will be referred to one of our Lactation Consultants. This class takes place every Friday. Walk-ins are welcome, pre-registration is not required.
Time: 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Ages: Parents only
