More Milk Mamas

This usually once-per-month casual group is for those nursing a child who is older, mobile and enjoying other foods (or those who are almost there...come ask questions!). Not everyone knows someone who is nursing an older baby, toddler or preschooler, so come on over and meet some other parents who nurse! Held on a weekend so working folks can also attend, this is a great place to ask about introducing foods, teething, biting, gymnursetics, changing sleep patterns and so much more. Come on over and experience this fun and interactive group!

DETAILS

  • Group is occasionally on a Saturday or Sunday at either 11:30am.  See the Calendar to plan ahead or confirm that it’s still running. If you put it on your calendar in advance, you’ll be more likely to attend (those who attend for the first time usually say they wish they had come sooner!).
  • Group is drop-in...just come on by!  Of course, checking the calendar beforehand is a good idea in case it’s cancelled or see the Babies in Common Facebook page (or the Breastmilk & Conversation Facebook group) to see if there’s a notification there.
  • If group is cancelled for any date, it will be cancelled by 1 hour before group is scheduled to start (due to weather or illness or other unforeseen event that precludes the group facilitator from hosting group). 
  • The group fee is just $10 for those who are pregnant or nursing, chestfeeding, pumping or feeding their baby human milk. Need grandma or your sister to come with you, they are welcome, too. :).  If you have a MassHealth card, your fee is $5. You may pay via cash or credit card at the group.
  • Consider buying an Unlimited Group pass (for Breastmilk & Conversation and More Milk Mamas, attend either with the pass) for $50. This pass is valid for one year and NOT transferable to another person.  Click here to do that! You won’t receive a pass that you have to keep track of, we’ll just keep a list of those who have one.
  • To see scheduled dates and times of groups, click on the calendar icon in the top right of this page or click here.
  • Groups take place in Northborough at 6 Maple Street (easiest way to get here is to enter through the walkway of stone pavers to the door (so no stairs!).  Walk to the end of the hallway and you’ll find us.
  • Please do NOT bring in a stroller and it's BEST to leave your baby's car seat in the car (CARRY your child). :)
  • If you have attended the Breastmilk & Conversation group OR the More Milk Mamas group (or had a private lactation consultation with Jeanette Mesite Frem, IBCLC), you are welcome to join the special closed Facebook group called Breastmilk & Conversation...click here to ask to join!

Keep in mind that you are ALSO welcome at the Breastmilk & Conversation group if your child isn't yet walking or crawling away from you, but some parents like to have a group for the older babies and toddlers.older baby

For those with toddlers and preschoolers, there is a playroom adjacent to the meeting room with toys.  Please be mindful of where your children are and what they are doing so they don’t climb furniture or touch things they shouldn’t be touching (including pushing or hitting other children).  Thank you!
