Full Description

La Leche League aims to help mothers 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 the mother.

They provide information to people who:

  • are expecting a baby and want to know more about breastfeeding
  • are already breastfeeding and want help with challenges
  • need information on starting solids or weaning
  • want to meet other breastfeeding mums to share support and experiences
  • are interested in reading more about breastfeeding, birth and parenting

Breastfeeding questions or difficulties? No problem! You can contact a La Leche League Leader via our telephone helpline 0845 120 2918, and get the information and support that can make all the difference.

  • The LLL Leaders who take the calls are mothers like you, answering the phone in their own home. They will listen to your questions and offer practical suggestions and warm support. They have the most up-to-date breastfeeding information available and can pass on the wealth of experience of other breastfeeding mothers, to help you solve the problems and make the decisions that are right for you and your baby..
  • The Helpline operates in the evening and weekends too, though many partners and families aren’t exactly ecstatic if the phone rings late at night or early in the morning! We ask for your help in avoiding those times unless your problem is really urgent.
