Our Mission

La Leche League USA helps parents, families, and communities to breastfeed, chestfeed, and human milk feed their babies through parent-to-parent support. LLL USA encourages, informs, educates, supports, and promotes the use of human milk and the intimate relationship and development that comes from nursing a child for as long as mutually desired.

What We Do

Breastfeeding is natural, but it does not always come naturally.  LLL USA offers breastfeeding support to all who want to breastfeed.  Whether you are working or home with your baby, La Leche League can help you reach your breastfeeding goals.

LLL USA helps families by:

  • Providing free meetings led by volunteer Leaders who are experienced with breastfeeding and are accredited by La Leche League International.
  • Offering support between meetings for breastfeeding challenges, such as positioning and latch, being sure your baby is getting enough milk, soreness, pumping and milk storage, and so much more!
  • Helping parents learn about the ages and stages of breastfeeding.
  • Creating a community of support by bringing breastfeeding families together.
