Go! Go! Go! I am sure you will enjoy getting together with other nursing mamas. The basic format LLL has is a rotation of 4 different topics: Breastfeeding: The Healthy Choice; Baby's Arrival into the Family; Breastfeeding: Questions Mothers Ask; and Nutrition and Weaning. We change the names of our topics so I don't know them word for word, but those are the basics (i.e. Thoughts on Nutrition and Weaning can aslo be Feeding Your Breastfed Baby Solids). Here, I will cut and paste the info from our local flyer:
|La Leche League is an international, nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to providing education, information, support, and encouragement to women who want to breastfeed. La Leche League began in 1956 when one mother who had successfully breastfed her baby helped another who wanted to nurse. "Mother-to-mother" is still our basic approach. We know that most of the questions mothers have about breastfeeding are practical ones, best answered by other nursing mothers. So, if you have questions, need help with a breastfeeding problem, or just need a little encouragement, please don't hesitate to call.
La Leche League of Chico offers:
-Telephone help from accredited, experienced leaders
-Monthly meetings with other moms -- children and babies always welcome
-45+ years experience helping moms and babies world-wide
-Lending library filled with books designed to nurture families
-Special meetings for toddlers and couples, as well as informal playgroups
-Optional $36.00 membership which brings you New Beginnings Magazine, a 10% discount on items purchased through the LLLI Catalog, and the joy and satisfaction of helping mothers and babies everywhere
So while there are the 4 basic topics, it is always okay to bring up any nursing problem which needs attention -- most leaders ask during the meeting if anyone is having a problem. It is a great place to meet like-minded moms.
So go, go, go!
