Resources for Breastfeeding During Emergencies

La Leche League has compiled helpful information for breastfeeding mothers who experience natural disasters or other emergencies, and for the care providers who support them.

    1. Helpful LLL information for mothers.
      • Listing of LLL information related to breastfeeding during emergencies including personal stories and FAQs about increasing milk supply and other breastfeeding concerns.

    1. How to Contact a local La Leche League Leader.
      • Links to information about Leaders and local Group meetings.

        During emergencies, our 877-4-LALECHE (452-5324) phone line may be overwhelmed with calls, so using our Web site may be the quickest way to find breastfeeding help. If you need to call 877-4-LALECHE and want to find a Leader in the US, try using our automated system that gives the names and phone numbers of US Leaders using postal ZIP codes. Any Leader can answer questions. She does not have to be from the ZIP code entered. Leaders living in areas affected by emergencies may not be able to take phone calls.

    2. Professional Resources for Breastfeeding in Emergencies

    1. Other Useful Information
      • The Mamatoto site: Babies are calmer when they are carried. This web site has videos that show how to use common clothing items to make baby carriers and slings.

  1. Donate to La Leche League: Help us continue to support mothers and provide education about breastfeeding to those who need our services.
