Need Breastfeeding Support?

For Breastfeeding Support:
We aim to return all calls within 24 hours or sooner.
Call 571-354-0240 anytime.
Email fairfaxcitylll@gmail.com

Meetings:
La Leche League meetings are FREE meetings led by volunteer parents who have breastfed their own children and been trained and accredited by La Leche League International to offer information and support to other breastfeeding parents.
We have two types of meetings: series meetings and drop-in cafes.

  • Series Meetings (Morning and Evening) start with brief introductions and are followed by discussing any questions or concerns parents have brought. If time allows, we discuss a rotating breastfeeding topic. We have toys and a breastfeeding resource library full of books to check out. Feel free to stay past the close of the meeting to socialize and connect. You do not need to have a breastfeeding concern or question to attend! 
  • Drop-In Cafes have no set structure or agenda. A Leader is present to help with any breastfeeding questions or concerns you might bring. Feel free to also drop-in just to socialize and practice nursing in public. 

Meetings are attended by expectant, new, and experienced parents and their children. Babies and children are always welcome. Experienced nursing parents who have weaned are always welcome. Formula feeding but interested in learning more about feeding human milk? Stop by!

School closings are announced on local radio and television stations, and on the schools' website (www.fcps.edu).  The website also allows you to sign up for text and/or email notifications about delays and closings.

We are also always available by phone, email, and through our FB page for any questions or concerns.
