We are La Leche League of South Bend and we have three informal meetings a month and one playgroup.
We are a community of mothers helping mothers as we explore all topics related to breastfeeding; the good, the bad and the ugly! So whether you are pregnant and looking for information, a new mother struggling to learn the art of breastfeeding or an experienced mother seeking support and camaraderie, we are here to help give information and support.
The meetings are free and open to all women and their young children.

At the next La Leche League meeting some experienced babywearers in our group will be ready to demonstrate and assist with hands-on practice. Bring your carriers and try ours! We'll have ring slings, pouches, knit & woven wraps, soft structured carriers, and more.
Of course we always have space for your breastfeeding questions, concerns, and successes.
See you on 10am Tuesday, October 21

The Milky Way, a feature-length documentary about breastfeeding in the USA, shows how women can reclaim their birthright and restore the nursing mother archetype. A film by, for, and about women, it is about the knowledge that inherently resides in every woman and how to trust that knowledge.

Whether or not you've ever felt like your baby might be colicky, fussy, or high needs, many breastfeeding mothers are surprised by how "needy" our babies are...until we compare notes with other families! At next week's meeting we'll talk about how our babies might not match our (or society's) expectations. We'll discuss what kind of myths and misconceptions are floating around about babies and breastfeeding, and how to remain confident in our parenting choices. We'll also share techniques we've found to help our babies and ourselves move through fussy times.
There will also be time to share breastfeeding questions, concerns, and successes!
