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.

The Global Big Latch On takes place annually over two days during World Breastfeeding Week (1st – 7th August).

The Big Latch On aims to protect, promote & support breastfeeding families by:

  • 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 women who breastfeed – women are supported by their partners, family and their communities.
  • Ensure communities have the resources to advocate for coordinated appropriate and accessible breastfeeding support services.

The Global Big Latch On is a highly successful, targeted community development initiative that raises awareness of breastfeeding, encourages the formation of support networks between breastfeeding women, and aims to normalize breastfeeding as a part of daily life.

Free Baby Wearing Q & A Class

Ringslings, Ergonomics, and Wraps! Oh my!
Are you interested in baby wearing, but don’t know where to start? Have you ever tried using a wrap and ended up with a tangled piece of fabric and a frustrated baby? Are you confused about all the options and wonder what will work best for your baby? Then, you are in the right place!

Join us June 11th at 2:00 PM for a Baby Wearing Q&A session. In this totally free class we will go through different types, brands, benefits and drawbacks to each, and everything in between. You will even be able to try on the different kinds of carriers to get a feel for what you and your baby (or toddler!) will like best.

Already own a carrier but not sure how to use it? Bring it by! We can help you get adjusted and comfortable with your carrier.babywearing
