Have you attended a BMSG(S) Workshop? Are you aware that The Group holds workshops?
The Group has been holding such small-group workshops since 1998. We started off with the "Back-to-Work" & "Breastfeeding" Workshops in houses of our counsellors. These proved to be very popular with the increasing numbers of mothers interested in continuing breastfeeding even while working. The casual small-group environment made it easy for mothers to interact and for counsellors to share practical tips from their own experiences. Many mothers also enjoyed the opportunity of being able to meet up with other breastfeeding mothers like them.
As such, The Group decided in 1999 to expand on this and hold Breastfeeding Workshops on various topics.
The photos here were all taken at a recent workshop on Introduction to Solids which I sat in on with my then 6 month-old Timothy. The session was well-attended by many parents, their caregivers, and of course the VIPs ö the babies! I found the information given to be very practical and up-to-date. The mothers there also had a great time chatting with each other!
If you have not attended a Workshop yourself yet, why not do so? Let your family and friends know about them as well! Schedules of our Workshops are updated regularly on our Website and also through our BMSG(S) Circulars. Check it out!
