Event Overview

A resource for new breastfeeding mothers to assess how well their baby is breastfeeding. During this time, you will meet with a staff member that will assist you in weighing your baby.

Babies are breastfeeding well when:

  • They are feeding at least 8 times per day
  • By day 5, having at least 6 wet diapers per day and at least 3 yellow seedy stools per day
  • Gaining weight

Every Tuesday afternoon from 2:00pm-4:00pm.

This is a "drop-in" type event to have your baby's weight checked. It is not necessary to sign up. Please arrive any time Tuesday during the 2:00pm-4:00pm 2-hour time window. 

Please arrive at The Birthplace security desk and let them know you are here for Weight Checks with Lactation. (Come into the main sliding glass doors from the parking deck, then up the spiral staircase to the left. The security desk will be at the top of the staircase on the right.)
