March 2015 Meetings, Playdates and Information

La Leche League has a rich history and an established philosophy of mothering through breastfeeding. All breastfeeding mothers and mothers-to-be interested in breastfeeding are welcome to come to our free meetings (and DADS/Partners at Mt Pleasant North). Call or email one of our Leaders for breastfeeding help or information. Babies and children are always welcome at our meetings.  Bring a friend! 

La Leche League is a Mother-to-Mother Group for support.  Parent-to-parent means that the Leader facilitates the discussion and the parents share information and voice concerns together so that each meeting has a unique flavor thanks to those who join in.  The LLL comprehensive guidebook, The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding 8th edition is where much of the information discussed in meetings comes from.  (You can borrow a copy at some meetings or even buy one for yourself here on our blog.)

Our general theme for March is overcoming roadblocks that may impede breastfeeding progress.  Knowledge is power!
