The Greater Pittston La Leche League, affiliated with La Leche League International and serving families in the Wyoming Valley since 1979, will meet Tuesday, November 11 at 10:00 a.m. at the Saint Maria Goretti Church, 42 Redwood Drive, Laflin.
Meetings are held in the lower level of the Church building on the second Tuesday of each month, 10:00 a.m. The Church is easily accessed from Route 315 and Laflin Road.
With the proper information and support, most mothers are able to breastfeed exclusively for six months as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the World Health Organization.
At this informal discussion on the topic Overcoming Difficulties, the league will share information regarding solutions used by many breastfeeding mothers to achieve their own definition of breastfeeding success. A lending library is available offering titles on childbirth, parenting and breastfeeding.
All women interested in learning more about breastfeeding are invited to attend. Nursing babies and their siblings are always welcome.
For more information or help with a breastfeeding concern, please contact: Debbie Nelson, Wyoming; Vicki Prekel, Tunkhannock; or phone the Help Line at 1-800-432-8007. Visit on line at
