La Leche League: An Excellent Source for Breastfeeding Support

1824-6_1212social (1)La Leche League (LLL) is an international non-profit organization that has been around for almost 60 years providing both community support and education for all breastfeeding moms.

Both La Leche League USA (lllusa.org) and La Leche League International (llli.org) provide help in various ways. Their websites offer resources and forums for answering frequently asked questions. They will connect you to local chapters in your country/state to attend local meetings, where mothers can ask questions and share experiences. LLL USA also provides phone support: 1-877-452-5324 (1-877-4 LA LECHE).

"The mission of La Leche League USA is to help mothers to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother." ~ La Leche League USA website

DID YOU KNOW? La Leche is Spanish for "the milk."

Milk Nursingwear thanks the founders of LLLfor their great foresight in the creation of what would become a global, grass-roots support group for all new mothers.
