Event description
La Leche League of New York is hosting a Leader Day you won't want to miss!

About this Event

La Leche League of New York is hosting a Leader Day on Saturday, October 26, 2019 from 9 am to 5 pm and Sunday, October 27, 2019 from 9 am to 11 am.

Please share with your co-Leaders, Leader Applicants and Group parents!

The Area is subsidizing part of the cost of the hotel, food and beverages for Leaders and Leader Applicants.  So, although you may be quoted a different price by the hotel and you will have to give a credit card to hold your reservation, your card will not be charged upon checkout because the Area will be paying the cost.   

If you are staying with another Leader or Leader Applicant and intending to stay overnight, please buy the $70 ticket (1 Over Night & 2 Day Pass).  This includes your room cost and food and beverages for Saturday lunch and dinner and Sunday breakfast.  When you book your room include your name and the name of the Leader/Leader Applicant you'll be staying with on the reservation.

If you are not staying with another Leader or Leader Applicant please register for the $120 ticket (1 Over Night &  Day Pass).  This includes your room cost and food and beverages for Saturday lunch and dinner and Sunday breakfast.

Group parents who are not Leaders or Leader Applicants should purchase the $80 pass for access to all sessions both days and food and beverages for both days.  They will have to pay the regular hotel rate for their hotel room.

Saturday Sessions

1. Jennifer Leopold, LMSW, IBCLC, LLLL, APL NY Supporting exclusively pumping families: This session will explore reasons families are exclusively pumping, how to manage milk supply, and common problems.

2. Allison Walsh IBCLC, LLLL Messaging to Really Help Families: Can I Steal That? : Examine what is ideal and less than when helping families tackle breastfeeding challenges. How are we communicating and what could be better? Small groups will brainstorm actual situations Leaders face every day and should come away with lots of catch-phrases to “steal.”

3. Paige Hall Smith, MSPH, PhD Empowerment, loss and a pathway forward: La Leche League Leaders view on breastfeeding as food, biology, gender, care giving, and love. Prior to founding the Breastfeeding and Feminism International Conference and as a part of my research to understand the interconnections and disconnections surrounding breastfeeding and feminism, motherhood and work, I conducted interviews with women from different organizations/gatherings—including women attending the 2006 LLLI Conference and ILCA conferences. In this interactive presentation, I will share these women’s perspectives and experiences as they relate to breastfeeding as considered from three different vantage points: human milk as food, lactation as a biological process, and breastfeeding as a gendered, care giving practice. Following the presentation, I will invite the conference participants to consider their own views and experiences and how they may shape the work of the La Leche League of New York.

4. LLL Alliance Council Representative will be coming to give an overview of what Alliance does, what they're currently working on and how things are going.

5. Michelle Farfel, IBCLC, LLLL Jaundice and Breastfeeding: Come talk and learn about the current research and evidence around jaundice and what role breastfeeding plays.

Sunday Session

1. Catherine Watson Genna BS, IBCLC, LLLL Assessing the Breastfeeding Dyad: This interactive workshop illustrates global assessment of breastfeeding mothers and infants as well as specific clinical breastfeeding evaluation. Case examples from clinical photos and videos are used for group practice in applying the strategies taught. Attendees are encouraged to develop a systematic assessment to expose potential breastfeeding strengths and problems.
