What Is La Leche League?

La Leche League is a non-profit, non-sectarian mother-to-mother breastfeeding support organization. La Leche League can be found in many countries all over the world. To learn more, visit the La Leche League International Web site section that describes our organization.

How Can I Get Help from La Leche League?

La Leche League Groups meet around the world. Our Leaders, volunteer breastfeeding counselors accredited though La Leche League International, are happy to help mothers with breastfeeding and parenting questions. They are just a telephone call away. Our meetings are also great ways to meet other breastfeeding mothers and get many suggestions. Some Groups are open to both mothers and fathers, too. To find a local Group or Leader, visit our listing of Groups around the world.

To get help online, you can fill out a Breastfeeding Help Form to get an email response from a Leader within a few days. You can also visit the La Leche League online chats which are hosted by accredited La Leche League Leaders, during any scheduled chat time.

Where Can I Get Breastfeeding Information from La Leche League?

There is much information on our Web site:

I am a La Leche League Leader--is there anything special I should know about this forum?

Thank you for visiting! You are welcome to enjoy this forum and share your opinions and experiences with others, just like any other mother. However, if you wish to represent La Leche League or act in an official Leader capacity, we ask that you create a LLLID Alias that starts with "lll" (just as our online chat Leaders have special LLL-names to identify their status). This will help forum members know that information is coming from an LLL representative.

Leaders, we would really appreciate it if you'd let us know you're here, even if you're not officially representing LLL. You can either send a message through the Admin forum or send a private message to one of the Admins.

Anyone who selects a new user name that begins with "lll" and is determined to not be an LLL representative will be asked to choose a different user name. Thank you for your cooperation with this.

How Can I Support LLL and this Forum?

La Leche League International relies on memberships, sales, and donations to keep our Web site, chats, and mother-to-mother support forum up and running. To donate or learn about other ways to help LLLI, visit our donor information pages.
