    Default Meeting other nursing moms

    My daughter turns 3 in January and we only have 1 friend nursing a child this age. I want to avoid paying dues/fees on services like meetup.com, but I want to set up a local nursing group for nursing moms of children over the age of 2. Any suggestions? I could use some friends and some support from some like minded moms.

    Thanks!

    A bunch of moms from my LLL group when I lived in Georgia started a "peaceful parenting" group. They started a page in Yahoo groups, which I think is how new members were finding it. We did a monthly potluck and a weekly playgroup. I met so many nice mommies. Pretty much everyone in the group nursed toddlers, in addition to other AP friendly practices. Maybe something like that would work?

    If there are any LLL or API meetings near you, those are good places to meet moms nursing toddlers.

    Thank you all for helpful responses!
    I found the API website. It is a new avenue I have not yet explored, nor knew anything about. Thank you for sharing it with me. I will look and see what is happening in my area.

    Blessings to you all!
