Babywearing, Disaster Prep, & the Importance of Dads

Christy Porucznik 2Do you have a sling ?  Do you know how to use it?!  Wish you could make one yourself so it’s one-of-kind and doesn’t break the bank?  Why so much fuss about “babywearing?”  What does it mean and why should I give it a whirl?  Come to Babywearing: Tips on How to Sling Your Baby and learn new ways carry your baby — and new reasons you’ll be happy you did.  We’ll meet inside the Cafe from 10 – 11 am with different baby carrier styles on hand to check out.  A great idea to explore if you’re pregnant and planning ahead, an urgent need if you’re sore from carrying a big baby on your hip –or in a bucket.  Meet in the Cafe!

From 12 noon until 1 pm we are  presenting Infant Feeding in Times of Disaster in the auditorium (east end of atrium).  We can’t plan disasters but we can plan our reactions and preparations!  Come enjoy some food for thought.  Is your family ready for disaster?  Will you be the one in your neighborhood with a plan?!

Dad plays a huge part in the success of the breastfeeding relationship.  Bring the whole family this evening for Father’s Role in Breastfeeding with La Leche League of Salt Lake City.  Join some of the best dads in Salt Lake from 7 – 8:30 pm in Room A on the lower level (take the atrium stairs across from the Cafe).
