La Leche League of Cleveland County Families will generally hold two Series Meetings each month on the first or second Saturday and the third Wednesday, weather and/or Leader & family wellness permitting. We also try to get together to let the children play on the third Saturday of every month. Anyone who is nursing or pregnant or who is interested in learning more about nursing, breastfeeding, or otherwise providing human milk for their baby is welcome (including your children) at every meeting.

Our face-to-face meetings offer a space for developing a network of friends with others who have similar values for nursing their babies and parenting and for sharing your concerns and joys. We will share information and tips about a variety of issues a nursing family may experience, including surviving the early postpartum weeks, managing milk supply and coping with latch issues, pumping, yeast infections (thrush), mastitis, tongue tie/lip tie, working and nursing, and much more. Leaders are trained and accredited by La Leche League International to provide individual support and help nursing families overcome many of the early challenges of nursing as well as those that may arise later along the nursing journey. While we often start a meeting with a particular topic as a conversation-starter, your questions are always welcome; we emphasize sharing and mutual support in an open discussion.
Even at a playgroup, you're welcome to share your nursing and/or parenting concerns. If a Leader is unable to join the playgroup, please keep in mind that only a Leader speaks for La Leche League and will always offer evidence-based information; all others speak only from their own personal experiences.
You can also find us on Facebook! We often post new research, nursing tips, or information for nursing in a crisis (such as tornadoes!) on our Facebook page. Our Facebook Group is like an online meeting; if you wish to join, follow the link above and send a join request to the Leaders.
