Whenever you are writing (texting, posting, pm’ing, etc.) for La Leche League there are a few preferred styles for Leaders to use. Group and Leader are always capitalized. Spelling words: Breastfeeding is one word but breast milk and breast pump are both two. Fundraising and postpartum - one word, health care two. And then there’s the compound/hyphenated words: Co-sleeping, Tear-off sheet, and Let-down (as a noun or adjective).
