The theme was A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words with the aim to create awareness that breastfeeding can take place anytime and anywhere. We are delighted to share some of the entries we received which capture what LLL means to us:

La Leche League South Africa’s Photo Competition

“A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words”

La Leche League South Africa ran a photo competition as one of its activities during World Breastfeeding Month.

The aim was to create awareness that breastfeeding can take place anytime, anywhere; as well as building a library of images that can be used in future educational materials.

“Some mothers say they don’t want to breastfeed because they don’t want to be tied down, but most breastfeeding mothers will tell you that breastfeeding actually frees them up! No cans of formula or bottles, no washing, sterilizing, or storing. No measuring, spilling, or heating. No planning, left-overs, or spoilage. Most likely a lot fewer trips to the doctor. Your milk is always available, always the right temperature, and never spoiled, no matter how hot or cold it is outside.” (The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, 8th edition, pg 13)

You can print to paper or to a PDF file.

For best printing results, open the llli.org site in Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge. Although you can view the site well in any browser, printing from other browsers might not operate correctly.

1. Browse to the web document that you want to print.

2. Click the Print button that is displayed on the web page (not the Print command on the browser menu or toolbar).
This opens the browser print window. The window displays a preview of the document that will be printed. The preview might take a minute to display, depending on the document size.

3. In the Printer box, select the desired printer.
For example, if you are working on a Windows computer, and you want to print to a PDF file, select Save as PDF.

4. As required, configure the other options such as the pages to print.

5. Click the Print button.
If you are generating a PDF, click Save. You are prompted for the name and folder location to save the file.
