Australian Breastfeeding Association Morning Tea Catch-Up


Join our local ABA group for a free catch-up, including a hot cup of tea/coffee and a chance to get everyone out of the house – babies and children of all ages welcome.

We have a general chat plus a light discussion with the topic changing each fortnight. The topics for the remainder of 2018 are as follows:

  • October 3rd – School Holiday Play & Chat “BYO Breastfeeding Questions”
  • October 17th – “Breastfeeding a baby with Allergies or Food Intolerances”
  • October 31st – “Breastfeeding & Returning to Work” This includes information on expressing and storing breastmilk.
  • November 14th – “Breastfeeding, low supply or over supply?”
  • November 28th – “Breastfeeding & Alcohol” Get the low-down before the silly season begins!
  • December 12th – “Summer Topics” including breastfeeding during heat and while travelling.

We start at 10.00 am and our discussion starts at 10.30 am, but we understand that little people don’t run on a schedule so please come and go when you need to. Bring along the kids, both big and small, our new toddler area helps to entertain busy little people.

We have a qualified Breastfeeding Counsellor available at the majority of meet-ups, so feel free to bring any questions or concerns you might have for a confidential chat if you wish.

As we are volunteer based any help to bring some light morning tea is much appreciated, but certainly not expected (no nuts please).
