LLL Meetings are for any mothers interested in breastfeeding...whether you are pregnant, have a new baby, or are an experienced breastfeeding mom, LLL meetings are for you!
All meetings are led by one or more La Leche League Leaders.
LLL Leaders are mothers who have breastfed their own babies and have been trained and accredited by La Leche League International to offer information and support to other breastfeeding mothers.
Some of us have newborns and toddlers ourselves, while others have been helping mothers breastfeed for decades. Since we are volunteers, we weave our LLL work into the rhythm of our family, home, school, or professional lives.
We rotate through a series of four topics:
The Advantages of Breastfeeding to Mother and Baby
The Baby Arrives: The Family and the Breastfed Baby/Bringing Baby Home: The First 6 Weeks
The Art of Breastfeeding/Avoiding & Overcoming Common Difficulties & Challenges
Nutrition and Weaning
