Would it be weird for me to start with my LO turning a yr. I plan on having another one, hopefully soon.

MommaRhi- what steps are you taking to become a bfing consultant? It sounds like we have similar aspirations.
It wouldn't be weird at all! I have a friend who just started coming with me and her son is almost a year too! Plus there are also EBF'ers too!

Re: Someone tell me about La Leche League meetings

I just went to a meeting today! I also went last month. I drive 45 minutes but it is really worth it. I wish I started going when I was pregnant because I have had a lot of bf'ing issues. The other moms are such a great support and as PP mentioned they are, for the most part, also into AP. I just made two friends and it is really cool because I didn't know ANY local moms before.

Re: Someone tell me about La Leche League meetings

I love LLL meetings! I am just starting the process to become a LLL leader, and I couldn't be more excited!

Re: Someone tell me about La Leche League meetings

I think LLL is a great resource. I think they want you to regularly attend meetings before becoming a leader just so you know how meetings are run, and how they tend to flow. I don't think it would be weird at all to become a leader with your babe about to turn 1. I see plenty of mamas at meetings bfing toddlers! Go for it!

Definitely not weird at all! I'm sure there will be plenty of nursing toddlers in the group.

You have to go to at least 4 meetings, covering all 4 series meetings. I don't think it would be weird at all to start going now. I know at least our group meeting has several nursing toddlers that are regulars right now.
