Friends of La Leche League Mission

The mission of the Friends of La Leche League is to support La Leche League as a resource and inspiration for future generations, encourage lifelong connections with the LLL community, and share the insights and wisdom that began with the breastfeeding relationship.

First Friends of LLL Members' Happy Hour a Big Success

Friends of La Leche League hosted its first virtual Happy Hour on Thursday, February 18th.  Sixteen Friends of LLL members from across the United States gathered via Zoom to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. We talked about what is happening in our lives today and reminisced about fun LLL memories from long ago as well.

The event was a huge success, and everyone enjoyed the time together. Participants requested that we host Happy Hours on a regular schedule going forward. We hope to catch up with more Friends at our upcoming virtual events, and we look forward to getting together in person on our next Friends of LLL trip as soon as possible.

More Mini-Grants!

In a departure from the past, Friend of La Leche League is excited to award Mini-Grants in two consecutive years. We are receiving reports on the progress of the 2020 Mini-Grant award projects, and will be sharing more information on our Mini-Grants page and via Continuum. We are now assembling the 2021 Mini-Grant Team and will be opening the application process soon! If you have an interest in serving on the Mini-Grants team working with applicants and making grant selections, please volunteer here.
We are so pleased to be able to fund so many innovative projects around the globe that further our mission.

New Website

We have received so much positive feedback about the new Friends of La Leche League website! With a simpler design, better graphics, more photos, and integration with our social media feeds, our new website is making it much easier for Friends to connect.

Mobile UploadsBreastfeeder Strength 💪🏻This image of British ultrarunner Sophie Power breastfeeding her 3-month-old son, Cormac, was taken at a rest stop 16 hours into the 106-mile Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc - UTMB ❤“Oh my god, I was in agony," she told Runner's World UK of this moment. "Cormac usually feeds every three hours, and it took me 16 to get to Courmayeur where he could first meet me, so I was hand expressing everywhere I could en route. I was so relieved he was hungry!”Sophie took the race slow and steady and made subtle changes to the way she ran because she was breastfeeding."In a typical race I would get in and out of the aid stations as quickly as possible, but here I had to focus on keeping down enough food for me and for Cormac, and resting,” she said.She completed the intense race through France, Italy and Switzerland in 43 hours and 33 minutes.💪🏻@alexis_berg for @runnersworldmagWomenshealthmagazine ...
