The mission of La Leche League (LLL) is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother 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 mother.
LLL believes that breastfeeding, with its many important physical and psychological advantages, is best for baby and mother and is the ideal way to initiate good parent-child relationships. The loving help and support of the father enable the mother to focus on the new baby so that together the parents develop a close relationship which strengthens the family and thus the whole fabric of society.
