- Australian Breastfeeding Association
The Australian Breastfeeding Association Tenterfield-Granite Group offers information and support in our roles as parents. Come along and meet new friends, chat with mothers who have 'been there' and connect with trained breastfeeding volunteers. We hold coffee mornings on the fourth Thursday of the month in Stanthorpe, Qld. Sometimes the mornings include a discussion on breastfeeding or other parenting topics, and sometimes they are simply a Chat'n'Play, a chance for mums and their young children to come along and socialise together. Relaxed get-togethers with other mums, bubs and toddlers. All mums welcome regardless of how your baby is fed or how old they are; children welcome.
