Across Washington, La Leche League volunteers answer phones and emails and lead monthly Group Meetings for families in need of support when it comes to human milk feeding their children. It can be hard to make sense of all of the breastfeeding information that’s out there, especially online. When you call a La Leche League Leader, you can be assured that the information they provide is current and evidence-based.
La Leche League meetings are a vital component to human milk feeding success. The Surgeon General promoted peer-to-peer support groups in the 2011 breastfeeding call to action. When you are a parent with a human milk feeding baby, there is nothing quite like walking into a room full of breast/chest feeding families. You will meet others who have experienced similar challenges, and some who have different approaches to parenting.
