Welcome to the LLL Mountain Empire website!

This site was created to serve the families of Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. We are here to provide you with breastfeeding information and encouragement. It is our joy and privilege to introduce you and your family to the many benefits of Mothering through Breastfeeding.

You Are Invited

Breastfeeding is a wonderfully simple and natural process, but mothers do need support and information on such topics as the correct positioning of the baby at the breast, working and breastfeeding, avoiding problems, and overcoming any difficulties that may occur.

Questions also arise: Is my baby getting enough to eat? How can I tell? Why is my baby fussing? What can the father do to participate in caring for the baby? When should my baby wean? And so forth.

Feel free to call your local La Leche League Leader with your questions.

Your Local La Leche League Leaders...

La Leche League Leaders are mothers who have successfully breastfed and have completed LLL's training and accreditation process. Leaders are pleased to volunteer their time to discuss your breastfeeding or related mothering concerns. Leaders are volunteers answering calls from their homes.
