Tonight is my first LLL meeting! I'm nervous to meet new moms but also really excited! Hope it goes well. Do any or you go to LLL meetings? What should I expect?

I went to one. :)

I'll hold off sharing my experience until we hear about yours! Just remember to have fun and don't be afraid to speak up.

Ours are usually pretty good, but if there are too many people it gets a little crazy and I think it can be overwhelming for new people. We do playgroup on the weeks we don't have meetings and those playgroups have kept me sane. I was new to this area, so this has really helped me to make new friends.

We have one once a month around here.  I try to go every month.  I really enjoy it.  I think if I hadn't found my meeting and this group, I probably wouldn't have nursed this long or planned to nurse longer.  I said I wanted to make it to 6 months.  Well, we hit that goal today and I have no intention quitting any time soon.  If I hadn't had the support from LLL and online, I def would have given up by now!

La Leche League is a wonderful organization, I love LLL Meetings and Playgroups, and some of my best friends were made through LLL. I hope you have a wonderful time!

I go every month and have for about 6-9 months and I love it! The ladies are so friendly and it is great talking to moms that parent in a similar way to me!

I'm back! The meeting went really well. I felt very welcome, even though all the moms seemed to know each other quite well. It was so nice to be around like-minded women, because no one I know parents with the same beliefs! At one point while feeding my DD a woman brought me a glass of water and it was so nice to know they've been there and understand. Women get thirsty when bf and DH doesn't pick up on this! It was also really sweet to see older babies nursing bc I've never witnessed a child over 6 months nursing! I'll definitely be going back.

so glad you had a great time! When I was a SAHM I went every month. One of the LLL leaders saw me about 9 months after I stopped attending (my school schedule never seemed to allow me time to go) and she remembered me and my struggles. She said that she shared my story with all struggling moms (without mentioning names) and she was so happy that we were still going strong :-)
