We are La Leche League of South Bend and we have three informal meetings a month and one playgroup gathering.
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.

Your La Leche League of South Bend Leaders love nothing more than helping mothers and babies through sharing breastfeeding information and support. If you have a moment, we'd love if you'd use the link below to drop a quick line to 1st Source Bank, telling them that you find us important to the Michiana community. We are a completely volunteer-led group, with no source of income other than memberships and donations. We use what little money we have for expanding our lending-libraries and for Leader training and education. Thank You!

The Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics at the Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York is interested in studying the experiences of mothers who chose to breastfeed their infants beyond one year of age. They are particularly interested in learning more about these mothers' experiences with their health care providers, families, and friends regarding prolonged nursing and where these mothers found the support they needed.
Eventually the researchers' goal is to share the results at the annual Pediatric Academic Societies' meeting --- the preeminent pediatric research meeting. They also plan to submit the findings to one of the peer-reviewed pediatric journals for publication and perhaps to the
of Pediatrics as well. The results could eventually impact the training of young pediatricians during their residencies. American Academy
This survey is for all mothers who have ever breastfed a child beyond a year.Here is the link: www.BreastfeedingToddlers.org
While they are hoping for a surge of responses right away, the study will continue through mid-April.
