Worry no more!!! MMPS is organizing a Breastfeeding Class for free. Come learn all about breastfeeding before your baby is born.

Weare who we are because of your presence and your support for mothers and their babies, thank you for making Mother-to-Mother-Peer-Support meaningful.

To improve our knowledge and ability to support other breastfeeding mothers and also ourselves whether it’s our first or second or even third baby, MMPS under the project Make Penang Breastfeeding Friendly is holding a Breastfeeding Class on 27th May, Sunday, at Pusat Informasi Taman Perbandaran (Youth Park). Registration with goody bags starts at 1:30pm, Class starts at 2:00pm until 6:00pm, have an early lunch and please join us on time.

There will be vegetarian refreshments and fruits, but do bring anything that you, your child or children may prefer. We also encourage you to bring your own cups, plates and cutlery for the refreshments; this is our effort to reduce wastage (Cleaner, Greener Penang). We will also provide plates and cups.

 

Also, if you have any doll, do bring it to the class as we have a hands-on demonstration section to teach you what are the positions to breastfeed your new born baby.

For your comfort do bring a pillow, bean bag or anything that helps you to sit comfortably while learning about Breastfeeding. There will be chairs and mats provided.

For the children, there will be a Children’s Crafts Corner, and some toys for the kids to play. We have a craft teacher and volunteers. But, if there is anything specific that your baby and children need do bring it along.

We hope to make this class uniquely created for families as well as make it a meaningful and wonderful learning experience.

We look forward to your participation.

Another great gathering. 2 expecting mothers came. Mommy Yati told us that she failed to breastfeed her first baby. Now with the second baby, she is determined to breastfeed. Another mommy is expecting a twin, a baby boy and a baby girl. How lucky. Both expecting mommies have learnt the 4 golden rules to successfully breastfeeding their babies.

A mother came with the question on what to do with her excessive EBM and later found out that she can make some breast milk soap!!! Happy she was.

Another mother came and shared that she still not used to nursing in public, even with nursing bra and nursing top. We showed her how to nurse in public by just using normal bra and clothes. 🙂

We are happy that there were few mothers who came and shared their breastfeeding experience with the expecting parents. This has certainly made this gathering a fruitful one. Thank you mothers.

For those who have missed this month gathering, do join us next month. =)

MMPS has been invited to give a 30 minutes breastfeeding talk and to have a booth to promote breastfeeding at the Mother and Baby Fair at Sunshine Farlim on April 22, 2012. It was a great event. Big crowd. Many people have learnt that cow’s baby drink cow’s milk, human’s baby drink human’s milk.

Crowded.

 

We ended this event by having a breastfeeding/nurse-in flashmob. 7 mothers showed them all that breastfeed in public is not obscene. And most importantly, baby has his/her right to be fed anytime and anywhere. We adult can drink anytime and anywhere, why not our baby? During the breastfeeding flashmob, we encourage the people, whenever they see a mother breastfeed in public, do give her a LIKE or a thumb up! 🙂 Their support is much much appreciated.
