Hello!

 

Does anyone in the Sault St. Marie/UP of Michigan have any resources, professionals, expert witnesses, etc, who can help in a custody situation regarding requested overnight visitations and a 6 month old who is still breastfeeding?  Mom and baby have not been separated yet and have nursed on demand through the overnight period.  They are trying to prepare resources for a court battle regarding custody and requested overnights with other parent. 

 

I am not in the area, so I would appreciate any help I can get!  From what I can tell, there aren't any UP LLL groups at all, and the family is trying to make contact with Petoskey, the next closest. 

 

Thank you in advance!

There is a group in Sault Ste Marie that might be helpful. If you're on facebook, look up Chippewa Breastfeeding Education and Support Team. I know there's at least 1, and possibly 2 or 3, lactation consultants up there. HTH!
