Tata Tuesdays: Live Chat with a Lactation Consultant Every Tuesday in August
In honor of National Breastfeeding Month, every Tuesday in August is a Tata Tuesday!
On August 7, 14, 21 and 28, a lactation consultant will be answering all of your breastfeeding questions from 1-3 p.m. EST on our Breastfeeding message board. To participate in the chat, visit the Breastfeeding board on each Tuesday in August and look for our “Tata Tuesday” post. You can then ask your breastfeeding questions to the lactation consultant, who will answer between 1 and 3 p.m.
The best part? Freebies are involved! Everyone who participates in the chat is automatically entered to win one of two pillows from Boppy.
