About La Leche League of Oregon

La Leche League International (LLLI) was founded in 1956 by a group of seven mothers in Illinois at a time when breastfeeding was rare. They felt that experienced breastfeeding mothers could provide the kind of practical, evidence-based help that newer mothers needed. For a more detailed history of La Leche League, please click the "LLL History" link on the right sidebar of this page.

La Leche League of Oregon currently has 50 Leaders leading 19 local groups. Our Mission is to help parents to breastfeed, through peer support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and parent.
