This exercise could be used by anyone conducting a breastfeeding education class or support group meeting.
Meg Sondey, a volunteer counselor for a breastfeeding support group, created this exercise using the book Adventures in Tandem Nursing: Breastfeeding during Pregnancy and Beyond by Hilary Flower. Meg uses this exercise for a meeting that focuses on toddlers. She says:
Have you seen
Earth Mama Angel Baby's
for Nursing Mamas?
I just printed these quotations, cut them out, and passed them around at the beginning of our toddler meeting. Each mom chose one, read it, then commented on it, or asked for comments. I think it sparked some interesting discussions.
I like doing this kind of meeting with newly published LLLI books as it encourages the moms to check the book out from the library, to buy a copy, and to realize that there is still more to learn about breastfeeding!
