Ask an IBCLC

476px-Cassatt_Mary_Baby_John_Being_Nursed_1910Breastfeeding is an art.  What works for one mother or one child may not work for another.  But there is always another way, another movement or shift that helps everything fall into place.

All afternoon we will have an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) on hand to address your concerns about breastfeeding.  Big or small, all questions deserve serious answers so drop by and ask away.  We’re in the Cafe every Sunday, 1 – 5 pm.

We’ll also have an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) on hand from 11 am until 1 pm.  Do you have questions about milk supply?  Latch?   Do you just want to double-check  you’re on the right track?  Ask an IBCLC!

Reading Circle, Hot Topics, & RD




Time for

Reading Circle!

Come to the Cafe with your little listeners for some wonderful picture books about toddler priorities — babies and nursing and staying close to Mom and Dad.  Discover new books and old favorites that illustrate moments of everyday importance in your family’s life.  Wouldn’t your budding reader love a story about nursing and cuddling?  Reading Circle will take place 11-11:30 am in the Cafe, along with the rest of today’s events.

Local family practice physician, Jay Moreland MD IBCLC, visits from 2 – 3 pm to chat about Hot Topics in breastfeeding.  What’s the buzz in lactation circles?  Come find out, and feel free to bring a few hot topics of your own!  (Have you seen the press this week on the  new research indicating breastfeeding protects women with a family history of breast cancer?  Check it out here and come to the Cafe to chat about the many ways breastfeeding protects your family!)

And since it’s Wednesday, we will have a registered dietitian on tap from 3- 5 pm.  Keep those questions coming!

Ask an IBCLC

Every Sunday from 1 – 5 pm you will find an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) volunteering in the Cafe.  Feel free to take advantage of this and pepper our volunteers with questions, they’ll love it!  If you have questions about your baby’s latch you may want someone to have a look, or just answer some questions.  Slip into a glider and let us know how we can help.  Sometimes the best help is another mother, and sometimes an experienced lactation consultant can bridge the gap between feeding crisis and blissful mothering experience.

kai xBreastfeeding should be an easy, comfortable way to fall in love with your new baby.  If anything about breastfeeding feels less than natural, let us help you find support.

We look forward to meeting you in the Cafe, whether breastfeeding is in the future, or is now a sweet memory.

Expectant Moms’ Circle, Meds & Safety; Ask an IBCLC

The Expectant Moms’ Circle meets every Saturday from 10am until 12 noon in the Cafe.  Come on over!  This morning The Pregnancy Risk Line is visiting our Expectant Moms’ Circle.  Do you have questions about “Meds and Safety?”  The Pregnancy Risk Line has answers!  Bring your questions, large and small.  Maybe you are just thinking about becoming pregnant, but have questions about medications or contaminants — this is an opportunity to explore your concerns ahead of time.  If there is an expectant dad with questions, he’s welcome too!  The Pregnancy Risk Line offers current, reliable information for pregnant women with questions about keeping baby safe in utero.  But did you know the Risk Line can answer your questions about drugs and safety after your baby is born?  Now is a good time get to know this great resource in our community.  Now, and for many months to come.  Echo is hosting our Saturday series and would love to include any concern you might have in the morning conversation.


This afternoon from 3 – 5 pm we’ll have a lactation consultant available to chat.  Any questions?  Ask an IBCLC!
