More Milk Mamas Group

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, gymnurstics, changing sleep patterns and so much more. Come on over and experience this fun and interactive group!

 

DURING THE SOCIAL DISTANCING TIME OF THE COVID-19 VIRUS...groups will be held online via the HIPAA-compliant level of Zoom.   

You can either attend via zoom.com on desktop or the Zoom app on your phone or tablet.  Beware that when you login, you'll go straight into the meeting but your microphone will automatically be muted.  When you want to talk, you can EITHER unmute yourself or the facilitator (Jeanette) will unmute you.  She will also remute each person when they aren't speaking to avoid extra sounds complicating the conversation. :) 

Once in the meeting, please click on your name in the screen and edit it to have your first name, your child's name and child's age.  Additionally, the video will automatically be on so everyone can see you...for safety and protection of all involved, if someone logs in and we can't see you and don't know who you are, you will be taken out of the meeting. 

The fee will be $5, to be paid electronically via the link below (honor system...)

DETAILS

  • Group is typically once-per-month or so, held on a Saturday morning.  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 attended sooner!).
  • Group is drop-in, no pre-registration needed.  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 ($5 for the online Zoom meeting during the COVID-19 pandemic) for those who are pregnant or nursing, chestfeeding, pumping or feeding their baby human milk. Need grandma or your sister to attend with you, they are welcome, too. :).  If you have a MassHealth card, your fee is $5 (free for the Zoom event). You may pay via credit card with the links above.
  • To see scheduled dates and times of groups, click on the calendar icon in the top right of this page or click here.
  • After the pandemic is over and it's safe to gather in groups again, groups will 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, during the in-person group, 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!
