The La Leche League of Astoria presents Mama & Baby Night, an open house for pregnant mothers and families with babies, from 4-6 p.m. Saturday at the Blue Scorcher Bakery, 1493 Duane St. Moms and dads and children are welcome. There will be tables with information about activities for moms and babies that are available in the Astoria area. This is a drop in and visit event, a time to connect with other families and learn about the resources in town for moms and babies to participate in.  

La Leche League of Astoria is a branch of La Leche League International. Its mission is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed, through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the health and development of the baby and mother.  For information, contact Megan Oien at 503-440-4942 or Janet Weidman at 503-741-0345.
