I didn't think we had any around here but it turns out we do!! They only meet once a month and I just missed the one for this month. I was just wondering what goes on at meetings.

At ours, I try to keep my child from giving "hugs and kisses" (aka drooly chokeholds) to all the other babies. Usually there's a topic, and people ask questions, and get help if they need it, and then just socialize. Every meeting I have been to has been complete and utter chaos, what with at least a dozen babies, toddlers, and preschoolers running around, but they are a lot of fun and a good way to get out of the house. And there's lots of nursing, too.

Yep, about the same here as SRS described lol. A bunch of moms, with babies & toddlers of all ages. Usually a good handful but we do them twice a month here so they arent always as full (alot of moms just pick one to go to a month).

Theres usually a topic (LLL has a set of topics that they rotate through), and then usually a supplemental topic. Like - the main topic might be "newborns", and then the supplemental topic might be how to involve dad, or how to ward off bad advice, or nurse in public, or take a shower lol.

Then, theres a lot of socializing. From time to time we'll have a speaker, usually a local LC. Other times LCs will be in attendance, just helping other moms or meeting new moms. And of course, usually part of the socializing is helping new moms with latch problems, etc or maybe just sharing info about playgroups, pediatricians, OB's, hospitals, LCs, what kind of sling do you have, etc lol.

I love our meetings!
