La Leche League Meeting Ideas

Meeting Tips and Tools:

  1. Making a topic sing to you: The best way to make a topic sing to you is to care about it, not to have to discuss it. So when a topic is singing to you, make a meeting plan about it then and use it later, when you need it.
  2. Use books that inspire you and will introduce moms to books in your LLL group library: Doulas’ Guide to Birthing Your Way is the perfect choice for this.
  3. Use the LLL Website ideas page and then, submit ideas to LLL ideas page
  4. Visit a neighboring group to hear a new perspective
  5. Use the last five minutes of your next meeting to ask moms what ideas they would like to discuss next time.
  6. Use the holiday of the month as a starting point (MLK example)
  7. Download some pretty pictures to make the handouts fun. Dover Publications and Wiki Commons are two sources for free pictures.
