Transcription: 
La Leche League has been great as far as a breast feeding resource and what to do when met with issues with breast feeding of any sort. I had been told, or it had been implied to me, that they were sort of the breast-feeding Nazis and to be scared of them as far as a resource. And that they were so pro-breast-feeding that it might scare people away that might be having issues to the point of needing to wean child. When my third child was four months old, I needed to go on medication, and I had about 3 days to wean them. I called La Leche League in desperation trying to figure out what I could possibly do to possibly not stop breast feeding since all I had been told was breast feeding was best and i needed to continue breast feeding no matter what. When I called them on the phone, I talked with a number of different people and they were all supportive as far as what I was going through at the time. They reassured me that my baby would be fine, that 4 months of breast feeding was better than none. But that even without the breastfeeding that I was still able to bond with him just fine, that he would still be healthy and that he would be able to grow up just fine. They recommended a formula. They showed me that I was going to be okay as a mom despite not being able to breastfeed and that we would all be able to continue on just fine.
