“Even elephants struggle to feed their babies if they haven’t learned it by observation.”
🐘💚🐘💚
- The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding 8th Edition, by La Leche League International

🤱🏼We humans struggle to learn to breastfeed without others to copy from. That is one of the magical things about La Leche League meetings and coffee mornings.
🤱🏽You can watch and learn, all while chatting with other families who have done it before or are in the same boat.
🤱🏻Mean while, experienced and accredited leaders are there to guide you in the right direction and provide support and resources to troubleshoot any issues.
🤱🏽 Even in a pandemic, support can be provided via text, phone and video meetings at all Alert levels
🤱🏾 LLLNZ support is free
