Saturday March 16th – Baby Led Weaning / Starting Solids at 10:00 – The Mother’hood

Starting solids is good, messy, healthy fun! The science and art of starting solids for your baby is very compelling. When babies are allowed to feed themselves they are much better able to self regulate and explore foods in a safe manner. Breastmilk teaches a baby about the flavors of foods the family eats. Cultures that eat spicy foods have mothers with spicy tasting breastmilk. When babies are not forced to eat, they honor their own satiety and have less risk of over-eating later in life. Babies won’t eat anything they are not ready to consume. If they have fed themselves in a sitting up posture they will spit out what they can’t swallow. Solids don’t replace breastmilk or formula feeds until a baby is past their first birthday. By playing with foods, babies can explore texture, volume and distance. Join us in exploring this ancient introduction to first foods. $12 to drop in!  Or use your 5-punch card (only $55)

Perfect for expecting and new parents with babes in arms! This class is $15 for a single or $20 per couple.

Saturday March 16th – Doulas in the ‘hood/Tips & Tricks from the Doula Bag at 3:00 – The Mother’hood

The Mother’hood is pleased to partner with doulas from the Denver area to bring you a free afternoon of labor tips and tricks. This monthly event is a wonderful way to learn some new things to add to your own labor coping plan, find out what a doula can add to your birthing experience, as well as meet doulas that are available to serve you and your family. This event is welcome to all expectant parents and is free to attend. If you don’t meet the perfect doula for your upcoming birth, you still have some great takeaways to bring home with you! We’ll also have some goodie bags for mamas to take home with them!

(This event is not a childbirth education class, but rather an opportunity to meet and greet with doulas as well as learn a little bit more about how to cope with your labor.)
