Mission Statement

La Leche League is an international, nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to providing information, support and encouragment to women who want to breastfeed their babies.

Description

La Leche League meetings present the practical, physical, and psychological aspects of breastfeeding and parenting through informal discussion. A continuing series of four monthly meetings is based on the information found in THE WOMANLY ART OF BREASTFEEDING and covers:

  • The advantages of breastfeeding.
  • Preparing for baby;bringing your baby home.
  • The art of breastfeeding and overcoming difficulties.
  • Starting solids; weaning; family nutrition

Additional topics, such as breastfeeding while employed and parenting the toddler, are periodically offered.

A lending library of books and pamphlets on all aspects of breastfeeding is available at meetings.

La Leche League meetings are geared to the expectant or new mother.
