A monthly breastfeeding support lead in German and English runs every first Wednesday of the month.

In Frankfurt the next meeting is:

Wednesday, 5th of January 2011 from 10:00am until 12:00pm.

Address: Souterrain Christ-the-King-Church - 60323 Frankfurt, Sebastian-Rinz-Str. 19

This group is run by La Leche League, an international volunteer support organisation. I attend these meetings regularly as a member. You don't have to have a problem to come, it is also a chance to meet other mothers or to borrow a book from their library.

Pregnant women are welcome as well as siblings or Grandma.

For further information see http://www.lalecheli...plz-6&Itemid=83

It would be nice if you contact one of the leaders before your first meeting.

Updating thread to the details of the next meeting in March.

You don't have to breastfeeding problems to come along. It is also nice to share your experiences with other mums or if you are pregnant and wish to know more about breastfeeding. Fathers are also welcome.

Each meeting has a theme but there is open session too. March's theme - GOOD RESOURCES - Gute Quellen

In the meantime if you do have issues you can contact leaders on the site.

I just want to add that the group isn't all about breastfeeding or helping moms with "problems." Of course breastfeeding support is central but some of the best discussions I've experienced at LLL were about starting solid foods, bonding with dad and the ever popular topic of sleep (within the context of breastfeeding)! Some moms have been unable to breastfeed and came to discuss this and others have come while pregnant with hopes of breastfeeding a second child despite not breastfeeding the first. The group offers a "buffet" of ideas to sample and enjoy.

I also love having access to a free English library of parenting books!

Passing on the reminder from Eva about this month's meeting.

Dear LLL-Mommies!

The next meeting of La Leche League Frankfurt will be on Wednesday, October 5, 2011.

The Topic: BABY PRODUCTS AND THEIR IMPACT

Of course you can bring all your questions regarding breastfeeding you may have.

We will meet from 10 to 12 o‘clock in the souterrain of Christ-the-King church in Sebastian-Rinz-Str. 19.

Please don’t forget to bring the books back you borrowed and give them to Jessica!

The information about group meetings will be posted on Facebook now also.

If you come across some interesting information you think would be good to post for our moms, please send it to me by e-mail first.

The same rules apply as in the meetings. No doctor-bashing. No "you should..." There are a lot of great causes out there, which all you conscientious women are probably doing your part to support, but La Leche League is a one-cause organization: we're the breastfeeding people. So, let's do our best to keep it to subject matters that are related to breastfeeding.

Some groups hold an extra, less regular, enrichment meeting, to talk about other things, which are also parenting matters. Sometimes a mom might know quite a bit about something in particular, so she will lead the discussion. So, we can also use our Facebook page as a forum to ask questions on things like baby-wearing, diapers, organics (but not homeopathics), co-sleeping, etc.

Please let me know if you could bring a small, healthy snackJ

LLLiebe Grüße

Eva

A bank, ING DiBa in Germany is offering 1000 euros to the 1000 most popular clubs in Germany. La Leche League has registered and you can vote for them online. You have to leave your email address. You can use more than one email address and you get up to three votes per email address. (That meant I got 9 votes with 3 email addresses.) As LLL could do with more money I would really appreciate it if you could vote for them. Here is the link:

https://verein.ing-diba.de/sonstiges/32427/la-leche-liga-deutschland-ev

You have to click twice for each vote.

You click on "Stimme abgeben" on the page, enter in your email address and the code on the page.

Then they send you an automated email.

When you follow the link they send you, click on "Stimme abgeben" again to confirm.

Only then will it count your vote.

You need to do this 3 times if want you vote 3 times for LLL.

Reminder from Eva the Frankfurt La Leche League Leader

Happy New Year!

Our next meeting will take on Wednesday 4th of January at 10 am and I chose the topic "sleep" although or because of the general topic for this meeting should be the advantages of nursing. I know from the discussions in our former meetings that sleep is a hot topic anyway

Please print the flyer attached and distribute it if you like to do so.

Looking forward to see you!
