Breastfeeding is a simple and natural process, but you may need support and information on the correct positioning of the baby at the breast, working and breastfeeding, avoiding problems, and overcoming any difficulties that may occur. Knowing other women who have breastfed their babies can be helpful and reassuring. Having accurate, up-to-date information is also important.
Attending La Leche League meetings can help you learn about breastfeeding from other nursing mothers. At these monthly meetings, mothers share not only their questions and concerns but also the benefits and joys of breastfeeding. Being in touch with La Leche League can give you the network of support you need.
Meetings follow a planned schedule of topics that include:
- Advantages of Breastfeeding
- Preparing for Baby, Childbirth and the New Baby at Home
- The Art of Breastfeeding: Avoiding and Overcoming Difficulties
- Nutrition and Weaning
All breastfeeding mothers and mothers-to-be interested in breastfeeding are welcome to come to our meetings or call one of our Leaders for breastfeeding help or information. Children are always welcome at our meetings.
We have regular series meetings each month, plus a nursing toddlers meeting. Anyone is welcome to attend any meeting – toddlers are welcome at regular meetings, and newborns are welcome at toddler meetings. The only difference is the toddler meetings are more focused on the specific things going on for moms of nursing toddlers, rather than focusing on nursing in the early days and weeks. Any questions are welcome at any of our meetings.
