LLLI is the largest and oldest organization dedicated to providing breastfeeding education and promoting a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother. This year, LLLI celebrates its 60th anniversary and proves that grassroots, mother-to-mother support happens not just at in-person meetings but online too. Both new and experienced mothers often have doubts and concerns when it comes to breastfeeding, and online meetings are a convenient way for mothers to share experiences, challenges and get answers right from home.
