Who should visit LLL meetings?

La Leche League Series Meetings are open to all interested women (pregnant, nursing and otherwise). Series meetings tend to focus on nursing during the first year. Moms nursing children of any age are always welcome and encouraged to come share triumphs and trials, enjoy mother-to-mother support, gather information and form relationships with other nursing moms. Additionaly, Sandy & SLC groups have meetings available for those looking for further information and those nursing beyond the first year.

There are many ways you can be involved in the promotion and protection of breastfeeding and it's "normalcy" this year.

Lack of Posts

I want to apologize for not having kept up this blog over the past several months. I enjoy being able to post about our meetings here for mothers who are not able to attend each month or for those stopping by who want to know what meetings are about and what things we discuss BEFORE stopping by in person.

I was absent from the February, June and July meetings, and of course have a difficult time doing meeting updates if I'm not actually present!

A renewed commitment to keeping our Murray LLL group blog up to date is here. . . starting with our August meeting, monthly updates will return! Thank you!
