We are excited to announce Sheen Slings will be at the Twickenham Green Breastfeeding drop in on Tuesday the 13th of March at the United Reform Church on Twickenham Green TW2 1pm-2.30.
Wearing your baby can help support feeding your little one - prolonged skin to skin contact helps increase Oxytocin production which in turn stimulates milk production. Likewise wearing them after feeds (whether breast or bottle) helps keep them upright and can help ease or avoid the discomfort of colic or reflux.
For anyone struggling with feeding at all - I would highly recommend coming to the Twickenham Green drop in or looking up similar groups in their area. The Twickenham Green group is run by Liz Lambourn and Geraldine Chew who are both absolutely amazing Lactation consultants. I can't tell you how much of a difference they have made to so many new parents I have had the privilege of meeting. Feeding - whether by breast or bottle can seem really anti-intuitive and down right tough in those early days without help. Timely help can make such a difference, and over and over again I am told how their empathetic, no agenda based approach to supporting new families has been an absolute lifesaver in those crucial early days. Their session runs weekly, every Tuesday 1pm-3pm and is well worth the trip if you need any help at all with feeding.
Hence I am so happy they invited me back and I am really looking forward to joining them again on the 13th! So if your in the area and need with a sling - be it help with a sling you already own or that you'd like to try something new and learn more - please do pop in on the 13th and say hi!
