Baby Café

At this time, we have decided to suspend our virtual café on Wednesdays. However, we want to continue to support you on your breastfeeding journey. If you have questions or concerns about breastfeeding at this time, please use this link to share your contact information and a Certified Lactation Counselor will be in contact with you, free of charge. Other local breastfeeding resources here to support you are: Buffalo Hospital outpatient lactation support on Mondays—call (763) 684-7630, CentraCare Monticello outpatient lactation support offered every day of the week—call (763) 271-2218, Maple Grove Hospital outpatient lactation support and FREE virtual appointments--call (763) 581-2021.  We are looking forward to the day that we can re-start Baby Café and see you all in person.

Wright County Public Health and Buffalo Hospital have joined together to bring Baby Café to Wright County. Baby Café offers information and support to mothers at any stage in breastfeeding. You do not need to have a breastfeeding problem to attend; many women participate to talk with other breastfeeding moms about their experiences. Pregnant women are welcome to attend as well to learn more about breastfeeding or have questions answered. For additional information visit Baby Café USA. Check us out on WCCO or view our success story on the Minnesota Department of Health website.

Baby Café is held every Wednesday from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. at the Wright County Historical Society, 2001 Hwy 25 N, Buffalo MN 55313.

What to Expect

Baby Café is a drop-in service to help you reach your breastfeeding goals. There will be refreshments and snacks available for you to enjoy as you visit with trained breastfeeding health professionals and other mothers. A scale is available to weigh your baby as well as breastfeeding resources and information for you to take home.

There is no cost and no registration required to participate- just come as you are!

Lactation Station

Wright County Public Health has a 10’ x 10’ tent with a height clearance
of 6’ 7” and a tent peak of 10’ 7”. There are privacy walls that can be set up at your event to provide a lactation room for nursing mothers. Public Health staff will take care of the tent including set up and take down. Please fill out the Community Event Request Form to request.
