We are looking for uplifting and empowering contributions with an emphasis on the positive.

LLLI is a single-issue organization and does not mix causes. We offer information and support rather than advice. 

Our Mission is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother.

Please respect our philosophy.

We accept:

  • Mothers’ and fathers’ stories.
  • Referenced features or reflective ones.
  • Responses to the mother’s new situation in “Mom to Mom”  (please see submission deadline in each issue).
  • Cookery features for “What’s Cooking?”
  • Interviews.
  • Photos. (For publication please send photos that are well lit, and have no photo modifications such as borders/frames, textures, wording or titles, or filters such as sepia tone.)
  • Videos (please no WMP format). A talk, an interview, an animation, a song, a poem, a story, a group of mothers and babies, a cookery demo… 
  • Audio recordings.
  • Excerpts from books you have written or published.
