Live, Love, Latch! is a National Breastfeeding Month celebration presented by La Leche League USA and hosted by LLL groups throughout the country. This event celebrates breastfeeding and highlights the community’s role in breastfeeding support.

Everyone is invited to attend and sign the declaration of support. Individuals do not need to be breastfeeding to be included. Family, friends, doctors, lactation consultants, midwives, businesses, legislators and anyone else that supports breastfeeding in the community is welcome. Community members can join La Leche League and learn how everyone can be supportive to breastfeeding families and how increased support can positively affect the community.
