Meeting Information

La Leche League groups in San Diego and Imperial Counties offer a series of monthly meetings. Our meetings are in a discussion format (it's not a lecture or a class) and nursing parents are encouraged to use their own experience to help and support each other. We feel that all parents who have breastfed have something to offer. Leaders are there to clarify information and facilitate the discussions. You'll get to hear what others are experiencing, how they've solved past problems, what helped, and what didn't. We also encourage attendance during pregnancy to get questions answered and have an idea of what a breastfeeding relationship looks like. A unique aspect of La Leche League is that our meetings are on-going -- as opposed to a one-time class -- so they are a great way to meet other families and find support. Information helps, but support is proven to be one of the biggest factors for breastfeeding success.

Here's a link to a good description of what to expect at a meeting:
What Goes on at Those La Leche League Meetings?

Each series of meetings includes the following topics:
#1 The Advantages of Breastfeeding
#2 The Baby Arrives: At Home with Your New Baby
#3 The Art of Breastfeeding and Overcoming Difficulties
#4 Nutrition (for Parent and Baby), Starting Solids, and Weaning

Listed below are our local groups and the days and times that they meet. You can also consult our calendar for further information.

All children are welcome at our meetings; however, if anyone is contagiously ill, please stay home and get well!
