There are so many people that do not know enough about breastfeeding and other parenting issues to be able to make an informed decision. Bring your questions to LLL. It is a great way to get additional information. Use the information you learn at LLL meetings, along with what you hear from the pediatrician and elsewhere, to make informed decisions. YOU are the one responsible for decisions regarding your child. You do not have to do anything just because your doctor told you to, or your mom told you to, or anyone else. Get all the information you can, and then make the best choice for your child. LLL is a great place to share information!

The LLL is a great source of support and information for women who want to breast feed and are commited to breastfeed. However as committed and willing as I was due to medical problems, I found it medically impossible to continue breastfeeding after both of my children. The woman who was my mentor so to speak told me how I wasnt trying hard enough and even had the nerve to tell me to put my own and my childs health at risk by continuing to breast feed. She said I was making a poor choice by following my doctors orders and that I did not deserve to have a child if I wasnt going to breast feed. Let me make this clear I would have been putting my child at risk if I had continued to do the most natural thing for a mother to do. I should have never been judged so quickly.

The greater Kansas City LLL has groups all over. There is one close to you or another one near by that meets at a day/time that is convenient for you. The LLL groups are run by individuals and if you attend a meeting and find it wasn't for you, please try a different group. Most of the women are supportive and understanding and want to make breastfeeding a positive experience. Some leaders and members are a bit too militant sometimes and come across as too strong. If this doesn't suit you, please look for another group.
I encourage you to take advantage of the group of the information and support they can offer. The women of LLL can be your friends and really a key in the breastfeeding relationship with your child.
