"Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act, but it is also an art that is learned day by day. The reality is that almost all women can breastfeed, have enough milk for their babies and learn how to overcome problems both large and small. It is almost always simply a matter of practical knowledge and not a question of good luck."

What Does La Leche League Do?
La Leche League of Chico helps mothers in the Chico area breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education. We are a chapter of La Leche League USA. For more information about La Leche League and breastfeeding in general, visit the La Leche League site.
This group is a safe space to share your parenting journey and seek support. We offer regular meetings to help each other answer the questions and meet the challenges that nursing a child can bring. At our meetings you'll find new and experienced parents who share their wisdom. We believe each and every parent has something important to offer. We hope you'll include our meetings as part your regular schedule.
Our series meetings are facilitated by one of our certified La Leche League Leaders. Each Leader is a mom experienced in nursing and who has received training in common breastfeeding challenges.
