We wanted to share with you this lovely photo taken at our Anniversary Conference recently. It shows keynote speakers Diane Wiessinger and Teresa Pitman, two of the authors of the wonderful LLL books Sweet Sleep and The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding. Diane is perched on the speakers' table demonstrating and talking about the 'cuddle curl' position that a breastfeeding mother naturally adopts when sharing a sleep surface with her baby. If you'd like to know more about sleeping safely with your baby why not take a peek at Sweet Sleep or one of our other recommended resources on infant sleep: Sleeping With Your Baby and Safe Sleep.
Our Anniversary Conference on 14–15th October was a celebration of 60 years of La Leche League International and 45 years of LLL in Great Britain. It was also a rare opportunity for Nicola, Kate and Sue, the team of LLL Leaders who run our Shop to see one another in person! Here they are above showing off some of the great range of books and leaflets we stock. Although Sue, Kate and Nicola live miles apart they run our Shop very successfully with the help of the Internet and the efficient staff at our fulfilment company based in Lancing. In addition to taking care of customer orders, sourcing new products and doing the business admin voluntarily in their spare time, they all remain active LLL Leaders helping mothers and running meetings.
Hope you spotted us at the NCT Babble event today in Birmingham. Here you can see just a small taster of the range of resources we have for mothers, breastfeeding supporters and health professionals. Don't forget you can sign up to receive the free LLLGB Health Professional Newsletter on the LLLGB website.
We're going to be at NCT Babble Live, NCT’s annual event for volunteers, practitioners and staff, on Saturday 8th October and are looking forward to meeting lots of people and showcasing some of our range of books and leaflets. Do call by our stand to say hello to La League Leaders Becky and Johanna. They can tell you how to connect with your local LLL Group and tell you about the free resources available on the LLLGB website. You'll also be able to pick up one of our discount vouchers, find out how to sign up for our free health professional newsletter and browse some of our great resources.
