What is a La Leche League Meeting?

La Leche League of Charleston, SC
https://www.lllofsc.com/charleston


Series Meetings
Breastfeeding families need good information and encouragement. In this day and age, breastfeeding can be a lonely experience, or it can become the most profound thing you'll ever do - you decide! Our meetings provide a casual place where you and your baby are welcome. Practical help and up-to-date information are shared, and friendships are often formed. If you are considering breastfeeding or already breastfeeding, La Leche League welcomes you, your nursing baby and your young children to our monthly meetings.


​La Leche League meetings cover a rotating series of four topics. Though meeting titles may vary, these topics and examples include:

1. ADVANTAGES OF BREASTFEEDING/CHESTFEEDING ​​& HUMAN MILK
What makes human milk the perfect infant food?
How does nursing provide "health insurance" for baby?
What are the advantages to the nursing parent? fathers/partners? other family members?

2. ​ ADJUSTING TO LIFE WITH A NEW BABY
How does baby get started breastfeeding?
How often and how long should baby nurse?
What is partner's role? other children? grandparents?
How do meals and housework get done with a new baby?
Is it possible to breastfeed and return to work?

3. OVERCOMING DIFFICULTIES & CHALLENGES
What can be done if milk supply gets low?
What if baby seems fussy all the time?
How do other parents handle night time waking?
Can sore nipples be helped? or prevented?

​​4. NUTRITION, STARTING SOLIDS & WEANING
When and how should baby start solid foods?
What are the best foods to feed a baby? a toddler?
How can family eating habits be improved?
When and how do you wean?

Enrichment Meetings
Our Leaders work to serve the needs of their local communities and the interests of their members. Groups may have special meetings for mothers with nursing toddlers or meetings where dads are welcome that coincide with Series Meetings, or they may hold Enrichment Meetings on special topics. Additionally, our Areas hold periodic Community Education Workshops to give families an opportunity to connect and expand their breastfeeding knowledge. Each meeting is unique - watch your our pages for special events near you!
