On Friday 3rd August and Saturday 4th August at 10:30am each day, women and their children came together round the world and breastfed simultaneously as part of the Big Latch On.
This year the Big Latch On has grown with 626 locations registered across 23 countries and a new Big Latch On record of 8862 children breastfeeding.
“Numbers really are only a small part of the story though. This event is held to develop the support of local communities for families. I know many friendships were formed this morning and all those who were involved had lots of fun. It is really important that we continue to make breastfeeding in public a normal and supported part of having a child,” said Joanne Edwards, Big Latch On Global Coodinator.
Congratulations and thank you to all the mothers, babies and LLL Leaders who made this event a success!
