La Leche League was founded by seven mothers to support friends who wanted to breastfeed their babies in 1956. They began a grass roots organisation that continues to offer breastfeeding information, encouragement and support to mothers worldwide through a network of thousands of Leaders and Groups. Diane Wiessinger, a La Leche League Leader since the 1980s and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), is the mother of two and grandmother of four. Along with Diana West and Teresa Pitman, she co-authored the eighth edition of La Leche League International's The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding. Diane has contributed to breastfeeding textbooks and written numerous articles and handouts on breastfeeding. She lectures across the United States and elsewhere on breastfeeding, birth, and sleep issues.
