The Extraordinary Milk League

The extraordinary league of milk, otherwise known as le leche league, is like a league of breastfeeding superheros. Well, not really, but LLL is a great resource for moms to have to get breastfeeding off to a great start. Each group is led by two or more CLC (certified lactation consultants) and meets about monthly to talk about breastfeeding questions. It is a time to be learn more about breastfeeding (and parenting in general) and to be encouraged by other moms. If you are pregnant, nursing your first baby or you are a veteran breast feeder there is something at LLL for you! Check out LLL and get connected and get a great start at breastfeeding.
