any AP type groups in the Salt Lake City area? I've looked around a bit for playgroups, but you know how that can go here....<br><br>
I'm interested in meeting other cruchies! Post any info you care to share, or let's get something started for ourselves <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I am looking for one as well. I need to show my hubby that AP is normal and healthy. I will be watching this thread. Hey, if we get enough replies, let's start our own!<br><br>

yeah! I agree....I don't want to have to go to LLL meetings to meet other moms, even though we are still b/f'ing...it's only a few times a day now.<br><br>
I'm in Sugarhouse, how about you?

My baby is still little...so it's way more than a couple times a day still. But we're lovin it.

Oh wow, that won't work! Well, meeting other AP mamas around here seems to be pretty difficult. There are a lot of good folks here, though, and many in my opinion, are more AP than they think.<br><br><br>

Just to let you all know, there is a SLC extended breastfeeding group (nursing beyond the first year) that meets at the Sprague library in Sugarhouse (2100 S. and 11th East shopping center, just past Barnes and Noble). They meet the 2nd Thursday of the month at 10 am in the basement. There are lots of AP moms there, although I think the more formal play groups have folded a bit for the winter. The topics are usually more political in nature and also more focus on discipline/parenting topics. The general meeting for nursing during the first year meets at the same time and place, only the first Thurs of the month. You can go to <a href="http://www.lalecheleague.org" target="_blank">www.lalecheleague.org</a> to find the contact info if you want. Great to hear from AP moms in Utah! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Hiya,<br><br>
I am in Kaysville with a 6 month old little boy and I would LOVE to see a playgroup started! I work from home and Jack and I sure could use some fresh faces once in a while. Question is... how do you start one of these things? Just pick a date and a place, I suppose, huh? Does anyone have a suggestion for a place? I'm up for anywhere, although I know winter pretty much warrants the indoors.<br><br>
Hope that together we can get something started!

How about a visit to the downtown Library? I work, so day meetings don't work so well for us. Would a weekend or evening be okay for everyone? Maybe the last tuesday evening of January?<br><br>
Any other date/place/time suggestions are very welcome!

I could certainly take a couple hours off of work and come earlier if it works out better for everyone, too. Thanks for starting the group!

My name is Michelle I'm the leader for the Salt Lake Mommas Milk Meetup I've been trying to get a time for everyone to meet but it is kind of a dead group. I need to do more but w/ sick kids this month it hasn't happened. If you guys are interested I'll organize a meeting I need input tho and probably someone in SLC (I'm in Tooele) to find a spot. E mail me.<br><br>

Hi local Utahn's, I've just started a Liberal AP Parents yahoo group for Utah. I know there are alot of conservative groups going on and that's great, but decided to form a group of parents that practice Attachment Parenting, and who are also liberal in their politcal views. A place to talk about parenting issues and political issues. If your interested, please join us:<br><br><a href="http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LiberalAP_ParentsInUtah/?yguid=163420782" target="_blank">http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Libera...guid=163420782</a>

so, i'm new to this- did you guys end up starting an ap group? i'm originally from detroit and i was a director of an alternative preschool where we went into the homes for "playgroups". it's a wonderful program and if anyone is interested, i'd love to have something regular for my son (5mos) and myself.
