Breastfeeding around the house

Thanks to Kathy for leading Tuesday's meeting about breastfeeding around the house. We discussed all the different rooms in our homes and how they change when you have a baby. From safety in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry room to sleeping arrangements in the master bedroom mothers shared how they made adjustments for baby. Many mothers agreed that what you have intended for each room before baby is not necessarily what that room ends up being after baby arrives.

One mother used a baby jumper toy for baby in laundry room to keep him out of the laundry piles. Many mothers shared new uses for unused nurseries such as spare room or play room. Keeping baby out of toilets and dishwashers is another feat. Some mothers use safety locks and others opt for keeping baby out of certain rooms altogether. Overall, mothers said that keeping an open mind and being willing to rearrange are important when it comes to baby!

Join us for our next enrichment meeting on June 23, 2009. Discussion of the book How to Talk So Kids Will Listen with Timbra from LLL of Murray.
