While La Leche League welcomes little ones to our conferences, due to the technical nature of continuing education sessions, we require that attendance by children be limited to quiet infants-in-arms. Space will be available at the back of the room for mothers with babies. We ask that mothers be aware of any situation, including happy baby noises, that may break the concentration of those attending the session to acquire education credits. Monitors will closely evaluate the noise level during the program and are instructed to courteously assist attendees who must leave the room to meet their children's needs. Your consideration of other attendees is truly appreciated.
The Mothers’ Lounge is available for use throughout the day for mothers who want to express their milk or relax with their babies. There is no refrigerator to store expressed milk, so please bring a cooler. LLL of KS offers our sincerest gratitude to the Meridian Center for sponsoring our Mothers’ Lounge.
