11am - 2pm Camden Centre, Tunbridge Wells
Join Baby Café Local for our Christmas fundraiser on Friday 14th December. Enjoy Christmas shopping in comfort! There will be stalls, a raffle (with great prizes from local businesses such as Bloomingperfect, Trendy Little Angels, Glazy Daisy and Purple Flour), a baby music session from Musical Bumps - plus proper coffee and homemade refreshments available throughout.
If you have enjoyed visiting Baby Café, bring some friends to show them what it is all about and why it is such an important service for parents. Mums, dads, parents-to-be, nannies, childminders, grandmas, granddads and children of all ages are all welcome.
About Baby Café Local: The Baby Café coordinates a network of drop-in centres throughout the UK and abroad to provide help on all aspects of breastfeeding and its impact on daily life – from starting to stopping and all variations in between. In a relaxed, informal atmosphere you can chat to other mums to build your confidence, get one-to-one help from trained staff, look at books, leaflets and DVDs and enjoy tasty refreshments.
This is something new for Tunbridge Wells; somewhere free of charge to go regularly, even if you do not need breastfeeding support, where you can meet other mums who are also breastfeeding their babies, have a break from shopping and where you can bring older children who can play in a safe environment whilst you feed your baby. You will also not have to feed your baby near a nappy bin! If you are struggling with any aspect of breastfeeding, there will be trained staff available at every session including an NCT Breastfeeding Counsellor and Breast Buddies.
Of course money has been needed to set up this service and we are very pleased to announce that ‘The Big Lottery Fund’ has generously awarded us a grant to be able to run this service until August 2013.
Baby Café Local – Tunbridge Wells launched in October this year at the Camden Centre Tunbridge Wells and runs weekly each Friday from 10.00-12.00. We will run during the school holidays, shutting only on 28th December and Good Friday when the Camden Centre is closed.
If you are shopping on a Friday morning and would like somewhere welcoming to breastfeed your baby come and join us for a chat, a cuppa and some homemade goodies. Bring your breastfeeding friends! You do not need to be a member of the NCT and the service is free.
