La Leche League meetings are free. Babies and nursing children are always welcome. Come for breastfeeding support, share your own parenting successes, troubleshoot a nursing challenge, or simply enjoy the camaraderie of motherhood.

 

In case of inclement weather, please contact one of the listed Group Leaders to confirm the time/location of the meeting. 

La Leche League is an international, nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to providing education, information, support, and encouragement to families who want to breastfeed.

La Leche League of Connecticut also provides health care professionals with continuing education opportunities and access to the latest research on lactation management.

La Leche League USA (LLL USA) and La Leche League of Connecticut (LLL CT) are committed to diversity and inclusion. LLL CT supports all breastfeeding, chestfeeding, and human milk feeding families, inclusive of their race, ethnicity, immigration status, national origin, creed, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, family structure, primary language, ability, or socio-economic status.
