Find a Big Latch On near you!

World Breastfeeding Week is August 1st-7th.  It is highlighted by a wonderful event called the Big Latch On.  This is a registered event that brings the community together to support and encourage breastfeeding.



Here are some of the ways the Big Latch On aims to protect, promote & support breastfeeding families:

 

  • Provide support for communities to identify and grow opportunities to provide on-going breastfeeding support and promotion in local communities.
  • Raise awareness of breastfeeding support and knowledge available locally and globally.
  • Help communities positively support breastfeeding in public places.
  • Make breastfeeding as normal part of day-to-day life at a local community level.
  • Increase support for people who breastfeed – they are supported by their partners, family and their communities.
  • Ensure communities have the resources to advocate for coordinated appropriate and accessible breastfeeding support services.

    For many years now, Momzelle has been involved with the Big Latch On organization in a variety of different ways .  This year we have provided over 50 locations with a gift card to our website for a raffle prize. The raffle is used to raise funds and encourage attendance.  

    I attended a Big Latch On event when I was nursing my first child and it was really fun. There is such support and inspiration when you find yourself in a room with a bunch of breastfeeding women.  Find a location near your here!
