I was going to go to a LLL meeting this morning but dd was soo tired I didn't want to wake her up to go. I was just wondering what they talk about, do babies of all ages go?? Do I just go or do I have to call in advance?? Thanks<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

babes of all ages are usually present. no need to call in advance to let people know that you are coming. but you can call a leader if you do need help or have any questions. i have been to meetings in more than one area and they are all different in the way they are held. but there are usually a series of topics that are talked about. hth.

I just wanted to tell you to go. I have found the meetings very helpful. I never could have made it more then a year without the support.

I just went to my first at 7 months pregnant with #1 and it was great! Packed room full of mommies, ranging from 4 or 5 of us pregnant (2 for the first time), at least 12 or 15 women with infants, and another 5 or so with toddlers or older.<br><br>
The topic was nighttime parenting, but we talked about a ton of other topics such as latch problems, baby only wanting to nurse from one breast, even cloth diapering.<br><br>
I am so excited to go back next month. Oh, and I did not call or notify anyone--just showed up and felt totally welcome!

I am quite active with my local LLL group here and you can just show up! No need to call ahead of time unless you need to find out the time or location, you can bring yourself and your kids (we've even had the occasional school-aged child at our meetings when Mom didn't have other child care options). Of course, they are free, and our group has a nice library of books that can be checked out. I made a lot of friends over the past couple of years through LLL. And, there is no need to avoid meetings if things are going well! Veteran moms are an asset because you can encourage and inspire others!
