La Leche League 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 many breastfeeding challenges such as positioning and latch, being sure your baby is getting enough milk, soreness, pumping, milk storage, returning to work, and more.
  • Helping parents learn about the ages and stages of breastfeeding.
  • Creating a community of support by bringing breastfeeding families together.

Many local groups offer breastfeeding and parenting libraries that are free for anyone to use. Your donation allows LLL Leaders to provide these resources at no charge, as well as attend continuing education courses to stay up-to-date on lactation research. Donations also allow La Leche League of Kansas to provide start-up grants to help establish La Leche League groups in areas where none exist. La Leche League also uses donations to provide continuing education for lactation professionals such as doctors, nurses, lactation consultants, dietitians, and breastfeeding counselors.

Do you want to support La Leche League, but you can’t make a monetary donation? There are still countless ways to support your local LLL group! Contact a local Leader and you might be able to help your group by distributing fliers about local meetings, help set up or clean up monthly LLL group meetings or playgroups, or host group meetings in your home. You can also help by attending La Leche League meetings as an experienced mother - your attendance and wisdom helps further the La Leche League vision of providing mother-to-mother support!
