Breastfeeding Help from La Leche League
La Leche League Leaders are volunteers -- experienced mothers who have nursed their babies for a year or more and have been trained in breastfeeding counseling and the normal course of breastfeeding.
There are several ways to reach an LLL Leader with your breastfeeding questions:
:lll Call an LLL Leader
You can find the phone numbers of local LLL Leaders through the LLL Group Index
:lll Attend an LLL meeting
You can get in-person help from LLL Leaders and suggestions from other moms like you at LLL meetings. Meeting times and locations can be found through the LLL Group Index
or on the Group Location Map
:lll Submit an Online Help Form
If you prefer online help
, you can submit a question using our online help form
. Your question will be assigned to an LLL Leader who will respond within a few days.
You might also want to check the FAQs to see if your question has been answered there.
And of course you can post your questions here on the Mother-to-Mother Forums, where you will receive responses from other mothers like you, who have nursed and are nursing their babies. :gvibes
