Latch & Learn Series

LatchLearnConnect

Latch & Learn is available online!

Join trained peer volunteers as we host a meet-up for breastfeeding/chestfeeding/pumping parents to connect, ask questions, and learn from the experiences of one another.

Our VIRTUAL Latch & Learn session are held Tuesday mornings from 10-11am ET. Registration is required below.

Due to popular demand, we have added a second series to our Latch & Learn topics! Offered select Thursdays at 2:00pm, our “Latch & Learn Part II: Beyond the Basics” will cover questions that often arise in older breastfed babies. This series is open to everyone, though the content is aimed at parents of babies 3 months and older. Latch and Learn “Beyond the Basics” Information & Registration has moved to it’s own page!

Latch and Learn Topics:

Learning to Latch & Building Supply
Learning to latch comfortably, and building a milk supply takes time, practice, and SUPPORT! We can help you improve your latch, and show you new positions to breastfeed in. We will also help you to feel confident that you
r baby is getting enough milk. Come and learn how to build and protect your milk supply as well as normal feeding patterns. We’re also happy to answer other breastfeeding questions!

Nursing at Night & Coping with Crying
Breastfeeding at night has many hidden benefits for you and your baby. Show up in your PJ’s as we discuss nighttime breastfeeding and tips for getting rest. We also know that
feeling alone with a crying baby can make any parent overwhelmed. Learning to understand your babies crying as a type of communication takes time and patience. Join us (even if your baby is crying) to talk about both of these common parenting experiences, receive support, and ask any other breastfeeding questions you’ve got!
