Mt. Pleasant Meeting December 5th - Room Change

La Leche League of Charleston/Mt. Pleasant meets on the first Friday of each month at 10:15 a.m. at the Mount Pleasant Regional Library.

The library is hosting a book sale this Friday and Saturday. We usually meet in the room near the bathrooms where this will be taking place.

Instead, we will be in the conference room - enter the library and go directly to the back. The room will be on the right.

December's theme for all LLL of Charleston meetings will be nutrition and weaning.

Topics like eating healthy while pregnant or nursing, first foods, ideas for toddler snacks, gentle weaning at different stages, oral health, teething, allergies and so much more can come up!!

Of course, as with all meetings, any topic that moms bring up is discussed. So, come with any concerns you may have. Call or email a Leader for more information or if you have concerns before then.

November's Art of Breastfeeding and Avoiding Difficulties

In LLL of Charleston our November meeting theme for all area meetings is "The Art of Breastfeeding and Avoiding Difficulties".

Leaders and mothers always have excellent ideas to help mothers overcome roadblocks that may impede breastfeeding progress. Terms like "nursing strike" or mastitis may come up at meetings in November. Becoming informed is the best way to avoid those issues and keep from feeling overwhelmed.

Instead of resting and recovering, mothers who deliver babies in November and December often find themselves shopping, cleaning, decorating, cooking, and entertaining. New mothers are especially vulnerable during the holiday season so this month is the perfect time to discuss these topics.

If you can, take time out to attend a LLL meeting and connect with other like-minded moms or moms-to-be. You can be sure to learn the delicate art of breastfeeding and hopefully avoid breastfeeding challenges this holiday season.

Please bring up any questions or concerns you have, even if they don't fit the topic!
