Meetings & meetups over 62 years

La Leche League turns 62 this month!

If you are curious about how the organization was born, check out this blog post from our parent blog, La Leche League USA. During the 1950s there was little information about breastfeeding in the US and no internet to search! In the early days, LLL Founders answered long questions by phone at home with long curly cords stretching around doorways and toddlers. They gathered around kitchen tables to hand write letters in answer to questions delivered by foot to their home mailboxes. Even in the early 1990s, Founders would answer answer questions one by one. Once when I called to ask a question on behalf of a Salt Lake mom, one of the founders took my call and sent a big manila envelope stuffed with articles and encouragement to share.

One-on-one parenting and mentoring support remains the heart and soul of La Leche League. There is nothing like the sharing that happens when we get together in person holding our babies. You may have a chance to tell your story or meet a great new friend. We hope you will join us at an upcoming meeting — perhaps tomorrow.

Welcome! La Leche League blossoms with each new family.

UTAH PROTECTS BREASTFEEDING

Breastfeeding-cafe-at-Utah-farmers-market-photo-by-Darcy-Page-8.2014-1024x576

The Utah Breastfeeding Coalition is working alongside Utah mothers and families to protect breastfeeding in public by supporting a new bill addressing the needs of breastfeeding kiddos — like yours! Want to support breastfeeding in Utah? Have a story to tell? Interested in meeting other fun & feisty nursing mamas working to normalize breastfeeding? The new Utah legislative session begins January 2015 but there is work going on now!

To get the latest scoop, join the Facebook group, Utah Protects Breastfeeding.

Here’s the group description:

We are individuals, mothers, and families working with the support of the Utah Breastfeeding Coalition to protect breastfeeding in Utah through new legislation.

For 20 years Utah has had language which only clarifies that breastfeeding in public is exempt from criminal indecency law and therefore mothers continue to be harassed.

Our goal is to create simple, clear language to protect breastfeeding in Utah and to increase public awareness that breastfeeding is normal.
