Breastfeeding Together hosted the ‘Big Latch On’ 2017 at Pennington Park in Leigh On Friday 4th August at 9.45-11am, with a great turnout for the event. We had:
- Total mothers – 28
- Total children being breastfed – 24
- Total people attending – 73
The Global Big Latch On takes place at registered locations around the world, where 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 local community host each location. Hosting a Global Big Latch On creates a lasting support network between people in the local community, and on a national and international scale.
