Our Mission is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother.
The ideals and principles of mothering which are the foundation of LLLI beliefs are further developed in THE WOMANLY ART OF BREASTFEEDING, the most comprehensive handbook on breastfeeding and parenting ever published. It has provided needed answers to three generations of nursing mothers on every aspect of breastfeeding.
(From LLLI publication No. 300-17, "La Leche League Purpose and Philosophy.")
Our group currently has four leaders, Lindy, Lynne, Catherine, and Kristin.
Lindy has been a member of La Leche League since her first child was born in 1986, and a leader since 1996. She has four children, including twin boys which she nursed.
Catherine has two children and has lived in five countries and traveled the world. She brings her global experience and love of helping mothers achieve their breastfeeding goals to our group.
Kristen recently moved to New Jersey from Miami where she had been involved in LLL since infancy; as her mother was a Leader there for many years. As an adult, Kristin became very active with LLL once again and became a Leader in 2010. She has two children, the youngest of which is still nursing.
