On Saturday August 4th 2012 at 10:30am local time in locations across the USA and around the globe, nursing mothers will gather to celebrate World Breastfeeding Week and try to break the record for the most women breastfeeding simultaneously! This event is called The Big Latch On – and we we will hosting a location for the greater Pittsburgh area.
In addition to the actual LatchON event, we will also have lots of great resources for moms including lactation consultants, cloth diapering experts, doulas, breastfeeding counselors, baby photographers and more. And we are so thankful to all of the great organizations who are donating items to our RAFFLE
so that moms who attend the event will have a chance to go home with a great prize
The Big Latch On originated in New Zealand in 2005. Since then, locations around the world have held Latch On events. The record we are looking to break is from 2010, where 9,826 nursing mothers were recorded at 325 sites in 16 countries. To do this, at precisely 10:30 AM (local time), all mothers will latch their babies on and nurse for 1 full minute. Witnesses will count the number of mothers who are nursing for the full minute. The numbers will then be sent to The Big LatchOn for the final tally to see if the record can be broken. All proceeds and donations from the event go to support the breastfeeding support of The Big LatchOn Organization.What Do You Need To Do:
Find a location near you. Then show up and nurse your baby!
If you are in the greater Pittsburgh area and vicinity, we would love to have you join us. Our event will begin at 9:30 AM on Saturday, August 4, 2012
. All nursing mothers are asked to arrive by 10 AM in order to register. And the nursing will begin at 10:30 AM.
