QFHT’s Baby Blues & Beyond will be starting up Thursday October 20 and running weekly for 6 weeks on Thursdays from 2:00 to 3:30.
We have limited spots available.
Life with a new baby is not always what is expected. This group is geared towards parents adjusting to life with a new baby, whether it is their first or not. We aim to create a supportive environment, where parents can share their experiences and come together, relate, and support one another. Topics are introduced at the beginning of each session (outlined below), but discussion follows the interests of the group. We normalize the experience of low mood/baby blues, but personal experience of this is not required to participate.
We do ask that participants are vaccinated against Covid 19 since this is a group setting.

The program is laid out as follows:
• Week 1. Introductions and group share (as comfortable)
• Week 2. Coping with feelings of isolation
• Week 3. Myths and expectations of parenthood
• Week 4. Who am I now?
• Week 5. Self-care strategies
• Week 6. Wrap-up and takeaways

Please PM me for more details.

Breastmilk volume varies widely, but for fully breastfed babies between 5 weeks and 6 months of age, it is often 650 ml to 1000 ml or more per day. The nutrients present in your milk come from the reserves in your body and from the food you eat.

Human milk has a remarkably consistent composition between nursing parents. The fat content of breastmilk varies somewhat between breastfeeding mothers and is more likely affected by the types of fats a mother eats. The carbohydrate, protein, calcium and iron contents do not change much even if the mother is short of these in her diet. A nursing parent whose diet is deficient in thiamine and vitamins A and C, however, produces less of these in her milk. In general, if a lactating woman has very poor nutrition the most likely effect is that her milk supply will be reduced. The quality of the milk is much less affected. Very few women in Canada would have a level of nutrition so poor that it would significantly affect the quality or quantity of their milk.

It’s important to know that the main ingredients of human milk - fats, proteins and carbohydrates - provide your baby with both nutrition and protection. Your milk not only has cells to give your baby extra immunity, but it is essential for the normal development of your baby’s own immune system.

Some exciting news! We are going to be hosting an in-person breastfeeding dropin at the Kingston Public Library from 10-12 every second Tuesday starting October 6th. (with social distancing of course) Message me for details.
Does anyone know where to buy ameda breast pump valves? Toys r us, Walmart have none in stock
Just letting everyone know that Kingston Breastfeeding Connection's Friday DropIN is cancelled for the holiday tomorrow, March 30th.
Not sure if this is allowed so if not please delete. I can't seem to make it into the drop in lately so am going to ask on here.
1. Do those of you who EBF do routine pumping and store for future use?
2. When you're leaving baby for a few hours do you pump a bottle for them to drink while gone? I haven't left LO very often but wondering if I should be pumping a stock pile? TIA :)
