Our mission is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and the mother.

Welcome to La Leche League of Illinois.

Founded by seven mothers, La Leche League International has grown to be one of the world's leading authorities on breastfeeding. We would like to extend a warm welcome and a thank you for all of your dedication to mothering and fathering.

LLL of Illinois is pleased to offer meetings throughout the state as well as local events for you to participate in.
