Welcome to La Leche League of Whittier & Downey
There are times when a breastfeeding mother needs support and encouragement from someone who has successfully breastfed her own baby.
La Leche League Leaders are experienced breastfeeding mothers who have been trained and accredited by La Leche League International to help mothers and mothers-to-be with all aspects of breastfeeding.
If you have questions about breastfeeding, whether before your baby's birth, during the first few days, or later, help is available via monthly group meetings, phone counseling, email, text or on Facebook! Please contact a LLL Leader or come to a meeting today!
La Leche League of Whittier & Downey serves Whittier, Downey and surrounding communities including La Mirada, La Habra, Brea, Fullerton, Santa Fe Springs, Lakewood, Hacienda Heights, Pico Rivera, Montebello, El Monte, La Puente and beyond
A newborn baby has only three demands. They are warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts, and security in the knowledge of her presence. Breastfeeding satisfies all three.
