Baby weigh stations reopened by appointment


WAMPSVILLE — The Madison County Healthy Start Partnership, the local breastfeeding partnership, announced that two of the Breastfeeding Connections baby weigh stations have reopened by appointment.

The Oneida Breastfeeding Connections baby weigh station is open by appointment-only at Oneida Health located at 607 Seneca Street in Oneida. The hours remain the same on Monday evenings starting at 4 p.m. and Friday afternoons starting at 1 p.m. Parents can schedule an appointment by calling Oneida Health at 315-361-2065.

St. Joseph’s Physicians Primary Care Cazenovia located at 132 ½ Albany Street in Cazenovia is also open on Thursdays from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. by appointment only.

Parents can schedule an appointment by calling St. Joseph’s Physicians Cazenovia at 315-655-8171.

When scheduling the appointment, the staff will explain the screening and safety procedures in place to protect both patients and staff. Precautions like waiting in the vehicle until staff are ready for patients, taking their temperature, wearing a face covering, and scheduling more time in between appointments to clean and disinfect surfaces.

Staff look forward to welcoming back the moms and babies, many of whom rely on the baby weigh stations for professional breastfeeding support and feeding advice. Residents are urged to call to make their appointment.

The Hamilton Breastfeeding Connections baby weigh station, which is held at the Hamilton Public Library is not yet open because the library is not open to the public at this time.
