This Sat! Young parents' breastfeeding group (Auckland)

Post by nikkitheknitter » Mon Jun 13, 2011 9:25 am

We'll be holding the next one on a Friday if that suits better than a Saturday and will be alternating with the 1st Saturday of the month and the 3rd Friday.

Updated for latest event:

Thanks Carla! It's still in its early stages... hoping to get a few more mamas involved but it's hard when Auckland is so big!!

We'll keep on trucking. Hoping to take my camera this weekend and get some great photos of the kidlets and parents for further promotion of the group. :)

Oh, and for everyone else, there's a facebook event page now if you have anyone you'd like to share it with (please? ;) ) http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=217087588323718

Very cool. I looked and looked for a group like that when my first dd was a baby but there was nothing around.

Yes this is one of the reasons we started this group! And a small amount of elitism and snobbery from LLL also helped.

Yay! You've done so well Nikki, with the one you started in Wgtn too :)

I'm going to be too old this time around :lol: Plus I don't think I'll have time for anything apart from kindy/school pick ups and drop offs :lol:
But with DD1 it was great to meet up with other young mums my age (like Nikki :))
