About the Author

La Leche League (LLL) is a pioneer in the field of peer-to-peer breastfeeding information and support. The primary focus in LLL is to share information and encouragement that will give a parent the confidence they need to breastfeed their baby: mother-to-mother, parent-to-parent, heart-to-heart. Volunteers across the world offer support and information in their own communities. LLL also strives to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother. LLL works to ensure that those who, historically, have been marginalized are included. Nearly seventy years ago after its beginning, LLL finds itself leading the way amongst breastfeeding support organizations internationally.
