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
“Our meetings are for all parents and supporters with an interest in breastfeeding. Our LLL group is committed to supporting breastfeeding in all kinds of families from all kinds of backgrounds and we strive to make every meeting a safe place for all. Meetings last approximately an hour and a half, conversation sometimes spills over a bit.
-Your healthy children are always welcome to attend with you.
-Bring a friend. This includes partners, grandparents, pregnant friends, or other nursing parents you may know.
-Parents who are supplementing by circumstance or choice are welcome.
-If you have weaned your child, you are welcome to join us!”
