World Breastfeeding Week


In honor of this week’s World Breastfeeding Week, I thought you might enjoy seeing this video commemorating the 50th anniversary of La Leche League.  It’s a fascinating look at the founders of this organization that has touched so many lives.  As a young mom, I had tremendous issues with breastfeeding and garnered a great deal of information and support from LLL.

    WOW, and to think, 50 years later, after all of their hard work, we are STILL fighting for the rights to feed our babies naturally. God bless these amazing women, fighting for us and our babies!
