It's summer time! Many people take trips or family vacations during this time. If you are traveling with a newborn or infant/toddler, here's a few tips that may be helpful. Having lived overseas for the entire time my children were little (under 3), we have flown and traveled a lot with them and I'm hoping I can pass on a few tips that may help:
Hope this info help a little! Don't let baby be the reason you stay home and miss out on summer adventures! What tips do you have for traveling with little ones?
I am so excited to announce that Olympia Lactation will be offering a weekly breastfeeding support group! Some of my closest friends are those that I met who had babies similar in age to mine and who were also deep in the trenches of parenting. Weekly, we'd come together for coffee, chat, and to breastfeed. I have been wanting to offer this since moving to the area because I feel it's such an important piece of parenting - to have a safe place to go and feel supported OR to just have some adult conversations that didn't necessarily revolve around babies, breastfeeding or being tired.
These weekly groups are going to be kicked off during World Breastfeeding Week which is August 1-7, 2017. The first group will be on Wednesday, August 2 from 10-12 at 1026 State Ave NE (at New Day Midwifery). Facebook event is here. Light snacks will be available and of course a scale to weigh your baby. This first event is FREE! Subsequent events will be free to Olympia Lactation clients and just $5 for anyone else interested in attending (which can be credited towards a consult in the future). Coffee, tea, and small snack will always be offered.
Hope to see you then!
Just Carrie wanting a space to write about being a mom to 2, boob nerd, military wife, and food enthusiast. But mainly a place to talk about boobs and babies!
