Bangor’s La Leche League is hosting a monthly event at Bagel Central, located on Central Street in downtown Bangor. The Breastfeeding cafe is meant to be an event where nursing moms can get together, discuss parenting and nursing, and socialize, as well. By holding the event in a public place, it allows the public to see that nursing is a natural way to feed your baby.

The cafe will be held on the third Monday of each month, from 10-11 am. It has been added to the calendar.

La Leche League has changed its schedule for 2007. They now meet on the first Wednesday of each month. The meeting place and time are the same. The calendar has been updated to reflect that.

When we took the breastfeeding class at EMMC, the instructor referred to a website that no longer exists. If you’re looking for a goldmine of information on breastfeeding, kellymom.com is the site for you.

EMMC offers support for breastfeeding by having a “Lactation Warmline,” which is a number that you can call for help/advice from certified lactation consultants. “Warmline,” according to the LC that led our breastfeeding class, means that you may have to leave a message, but someone will call you back. The number is 973-8673. (She also suggested that in a crisis, you could call Grant7 for help.) The LC staff also hosts a monthly breastfeeding support group. From their webpage:Information group meeting to offer support to pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.

Meets once a month on the second Tuesday of the month at 10am – 11:30am

Location: Grant 7 solarium. Babies and children are welcome.
