Monday night was the breastfeeding class for Wayne county. We sent out special invitations hoping to draw more people to the class. Our average is 4.3 people per class and last night we had 7 attend!
Everyone got a folder full of pamphlets and handouts, a world breastfeeding week button, a few breastfeeding stickers, a name tag, a piece of paper to take notes on, a pen to write with, an evaluation form to fill out and a little card that they can fill out if they'd like more information about anything specific.
We played the breastfeeding treasures game, which is always really fun, and then drew names out to give out more prizes. Everyone ended up winning something!
We have a box that they can drop their evaluation forms in.
We have our doll, Aiden, who we demonstrate positioning with. I encouraged the moms to gather around me while I demonstrated last night. I felt they could see better and were asking more questions because it didn't feel so formal.
- 1 t. mustard
- 2 t. sesame seeds
- 1 T. cottage cheese
- For meconium—use molasses
- For transitional stool—use molasses + baby poop
we felt it was a bit too thick and could use a bit of watering down (perhaps with milk).
Kristen and I set up a table (or 3) at our WIC Food Center on August 5th for World Breastfeeding Week. This was our first time setting up at the food center. What does everyone else usually do?

Here are some of the things we had for moms. After awhile we filled a bunch of the goody bags to leave in the shopping carts.
