Got Milk? Updated List of LLL Meetings and Leaders

April 11, 2012


Nursing isn’t easy for everyone (well, for a lot of us!) . That became apparent to me when I attended my first La Leche League (LLL) meeting when I was 9 months pregnant. I’m so glad I got clued in by some very honest women in the group before I gave birth.  After my son Birch’s birth, I went back to a few LLL meetings. Surprisingly, the friends I count as my closest friends were those I met at those meetings. So, I’ve always been a fan of the LLL, though I was initially wary. Somewhere along the way someone had told me that LLLs were led by women who wanted you to nurse until your kids were in college. (By the way, that’s not true…obviously!)

In Brooklyn, there are several LLL’s so moms don’t have to travel too far from their neighborhood to get advice and meet other moms.
