Baby Weigh Station Center and Breastfeeding Cafe
A place where new & expecting parents can get professional breastfeeding support, check baby’s weight, talk with other moms, and connect to community resources.
We offer two different free services for our new mothers to help them with the early state development of their newborns: Baby Weigh Station and the Breastfeeding Cafe.
Baby Weight Station Center and Breastfeeding Cafe Schedule
The Breastfeeding Cafe is meant to teach mothers about breast feeding and how to manage the health of themselves and newborn during the breastfeeding process. These classes are taught by our Breastfeeding Lactation Councilors.
New Moms can schedule an appointment or walk-in – no referral required. We provide a lite lunch and opportunity for moms to network and share experiences.
Baby Weigh Station Center
The Baby Weigh Station Center is meant to assist breastfeeding moms so that continuation of breastfeeding is accomplished. Babies can be weighed and you can receive personal breastfeeding counseling form one of our professionally trained Lactation Councilors or Consultant.
The Baby Weigh Station is free to all mothers.
Visits to the Baby Weigh Station Center are by appointment only. All appointments require a referral. Those delivering at the Oneida Health Hospital will automatically receive a referral from the Maternity Unit nursing staff upon discharge. Mothers who deliver at another hospital can schedule an appointment by obtaining a referral from their Pediatrician.
What to expect:
- Babies are weighed
- Breastfeeding problems or issues are addressed
- Moms are given a “Weigh Card” to record and document their baby’s weight at each visit to track their baby’s progress
- A baby weigh chart is also started and kept at the Weigh Station Center for each newborn
We will also provide our expecting parents with a tour of the Lullaby Center so that on your day you are more familiar with your environment
