The whole family is welcome! We will have The Global Big Latch On at 10:30 am!
WHAT IS THE BIG LATCH ON?
The Big Latch On is a simultaneous event that occurs annually on the Saturday of World Breastfeeding Week (August 1-7) each year. It starts at exactly 10:30 am. Groups of breastfeeding parents coming together at registered locations around the world to all latch on their child at a set time. All the breastfeeding persons and children are latched on for one minute at the set time and are counted by the witnesses.
The numbers are added up and we see if we can beat previous Big Latch On records! The Big Latch On supports communities with identifying and growing opportunities to provide ongoing breastfeeding support and promotion.
