From the Global Big Latch On website:
“Global Big Latch On events are highly successful, targeted community development initiatives that raise awareness of breastfeeding, encourage the formation of support networks between breastfeeding persons, and aim to normalize breastfeeding as a part of daily life.”
This event takes place annually during World Breastfeeding Week, and had an impressive 18,036 participants at 725 locations in 2017.
The week of events continues with a Facebook Live event, hosted by the BRC, on Wednesday, August 7th at 12pm. We’ll have a panel of experts, including a neonatologist, a pediatrician, IBCLCs, and breastfeeding counselors, available to answer your questions.
