La Leche League offers women the chance to connect with nursing mothers. New moms can meet other new mothers as well as mothers who have made it through those sometimes challenging first few weeks. Pregnant women can be in the company of mothers and babies who are nursing and bring questions or concerns to the group. Mothers of nurslings of all ages can connect with each other and offer wisdom, experience and encouragement, as well as make new friends and arrange playgroups! La Leche League Leaders are available for personal conversations and problem-solving. The atmosphere is always warm and welcoming. A lending library of breastfeeding and parenting books is available.
This event is held on the 2nd floor of the Fletcher Free Library in Burlington. They meet the second Tuesday of every month.

This is a great place to find friendly support for breastfeeding challenges or to simply hang out with like minded moms. The monthly discussion topics provide insight and a great platform for sharing personal experiences. The leaders are knowledgeable, friendly, caring and non-judgmental. The "care-for-your-baby first" mentality keeps things lively, but not chaotic. Thanks for providing a friendly, relaxing community space!

A La Leche League meeting is an easy place to take a baby. There are usually snacks available if your toddler is restless. It's nice to connect with other moms.
