La Leche League meetings “put tools in your mothering toolbox,” Lorraine Redmond, a leader of the Salida group, said.

The league’s next meeting will be from 10-11:30 a.m. Monday in the Sun Room at First Presbyterian Church, 7 Poncha Blvd.

When a mom comes to a meeting and says, “My baby is doing such-and-such, and I don’t know how to handle it,” three or four other moms are sure to offer suggestions, Redmond said in a press release.

Meetings are free and casual, babies are always welcome, and the group is not just for first-time mothers, she said.

“You can attend a meeting if you’re pregnant and thinking about breastfeeding, if you’re breastfeeding and supplementing with formula, if you’re exclusively breastfeeding, if you pump but only give your baby your milk in bottles, if you weaned your baby but want to relactate, or if you want to learn about breastfeeding or get mother-to-mother support for any reason,” Redmond said.

For breastfeeding information and support, contact Redmond at 719-207-5008 or Elaine at 913-980-4778.
