Get Free Lactation Help
Breast is best—there are many reasons for this ubiquitous slogan: Breastfed infants experience less diarrhea and constipation, fewer colds and ear infections, and lower rates of death, including death from SIDS. But lactation can be challenging for moms. So the local nonprofit Better Beginnings for Babies launched the Breastfeeding Cafe, where mothers can get free professional support from lactation specialists and consultants. The café meets on Tuesdays in September, 11 a.m.–noon, at the Sebastopol Regional Library in Sebastopol. For more information, email [email protected] or see tinyurl.com/yhsryx59.
