"The Global Big Latch On is a worldwide effort to break the record for the most women breastfeeding at one time. At a registered Global Big Latch On locations around the world, women gather together to breastfeed and offer peer support to each other. Their friends, family and community join this celebration to promote and support breastfeeding. Volunteers from within the community host each location, hosting a Global Big Latch On creates a lasting support network for the community."
We will gather at 10 am to register breastfeeding/pumping moms, then count the number of breastfeeding (expressing milk or feeding your baby expressed milk also counts as a latch!) women between 10:30-10:31, contributing to a worldwide effort to break the record for the most women breastfeeding at one time!
Totals from 2015: 28 participating countries, 758 individual locations, 17,992 breastfeeding children, 17,852 breastfeeding women, 48,628 total people in attendance.
Feel free to mingle afterward, eat locally donated snacks, and connect with other breastfeeding and pumping moms!
