Our meetings are informal discussions of breastfeeding related topics held monthly by accredited Leaders. No two series are exactly alike, since we are all growing in our understanding of child development, mothering and family life. As we share our knowledge, we can all learn and support each other during this important time in the lives of our families.
We offer several monthly meetings to fit your needs. The series meetings (Ladera Ranch and Irvine) focus on new mothers and babies. The Toddler meeting focuses on babies nine months and older. All mothers, babies and siblings are weLLLcome at any LLL meeting. Fathers are weLLLcome at Evening meetings. Our Meeting Notice can be found in the attachment below.
The ideal time to begin attending is during pregnancy - the information received well in advance may prove vital to a mother when her baby arrives. Pregnant women may find it helpful to attend a series of four monthly meetings before the baby is due and read our book, The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, 8th ediition, which can be purchased at our meetings, online or may be available at your local library.
Because our meetings are attended by pregnant women and newborns, we ask that you avoid bringing contagiously ill children to meetings. If illness prevents you from attending you can still receive support and information by calling a leader on the phone.
