2A Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2010 Feather River Bulletin Principal's Message Two things happened recently that I want to share with you. First, I saw one of our dads with his daughters holding hands as the three of them skipped down the sidewalk to- gether. All three were laughing and clearly enjoying their collective silliness. Then we had a student who put her head down while lis- tening to her teacher, but she didn't wake up. Some very frightening minutes passed while the ambulance rushed her to the hospital where they were able to wake her up. The point for me was that we sometimes get so absorbed in hurrying through our day-to-day business that we forget to slow down and have fun, cherishing the minutes we have with our children. Regardless of how much we have to do, we still need to play with them, take pleasure in the time we get with them, and let them know how much we love them. If my grown daughters were going to be home tonight, I'd give them big hugs. Sincerely, Shepard Kest Porter, Principal A Word from the Secretary Did your child receive the HIN1 vaccine in December at school?

Photo submitted Breastfeeding support available A collaboration between Plumas Rural Services' Women-Infants-Children and the Birth Partners program has provided three new op- portunities for pregnant and breastfeeding morns. Free breastfeeding support services are now available for WIC and non-WIC eligible families. Current studies make it clear that breast milk is nutritionally far superior to formula, and that breasffeeding has life-long bene- fits for both baby and mother, For many women, breast- feeding goes well, but for many others, there may be is- sues that can interfere with success. Often those issues can quickly lead to larger problems resulting in moth- ers only partially breastfeed- ing their babies, or giving it up altogether. Some moms feel a sense of failure if the process is diffi- cult or unsuccessful. The Plumas Services WIC and Birth Partner collaborative : offers the sUpport 0fCertified Lactation Educators to help moms be successful in their breasffeeding goals. Studies show that mothers who have support from a lac- tation educator have a more positive experience with breastfeeding. They are also more likely to breastfeed ex- clusively, and for longer peri- ods, both associated with in- creased health benefits. Birth Partners Pregnancy" Mentors now offer three forms of lactation support for :mothers:.a_mglat b!y breast- , :, : . , . feeding class; a monthly breastfeeding support group; hospital and home visits, and phone access for support and techniques to overcome problems For more information, con- tact Susie at 284-1406 or or the WIC office at 283-4093.
