Welcome to La Leche League of Northern Anne Arundel! We meet two times a month to share mother-to-mother breastfeeding information and support each other on our breastfeeding journeys.
Meetings are fun and informal, and questions from the group are always answered first.
La Leche League cycles through four series meetings: 1. The advantages of breastfeeding. Mothers are amazed to hear about the many remarkable qualities of human milk, their bodies fantastic ability to produce milk as well as the positive impact breastfeeding has on families, the environment and society. 2. Adjusting to life with a new baby. This meeting focuses on the first six weeks and offers tips to make the transition into being a family as smooth as possible 3. Overcoming difficulties. Leaders and mothers have excellent ideas to help mothers overcome roadblocks that may impede breastfeeding progress 4. Nutrition and weaning. Pregnant women enjoy this topic so they can optimize their unborn baby's health. Mothers learn how to start solids for their babies. Nutritious options for family meals are shared.
This is the meeting that is held on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Come along to four series meetings and you will win your choice of one of the three breastfeeding badges.
The meetings on the second Tuesdays of the month are Enrichment meetings. These are cafe style meetings or special topic meetings.
