Every mother deserves top-quality breastfeeding support!

Baby Cafe is a free drop-in center offering professional support from IBCLC©s and peer support from other nursing moms - all in a relaxed, non-medical environment.  Join us for light refreshments and breastfeeding support on Tuesdays and Fridays between 10am and 1 pm and on Wednesdays from 6-8pm.  We also have an infant scale so you can weigh your baby!  

Baby Cafe provides support, information, and guidance for mothers at all stages of breastfeeding, including weaning.  Published research shows that mothers who attend Baby Cafe drop-ins are more likely to continue breastfeeding their babies and wean when they are ready.

This partnership between California Advanced Lactation Institute (formerly known as Bakersfield Breastfeeds) and Baby Cafe© Bakersfield links lactation care providers with breastfeeding mothers in a setting which is new to our community.  By opening the licensed Baby Cafe© Bakersfield location, our intention was to meet the needs of mothers  who may not be able to afford private IBCLC care.  Since our opening in March 2014, the response has been overwhelming, and we have been humbled by the reception this community has provided.  This service has filled a deep need in the community and we are extremely proud to be part of it.
