The Big Latch On 2019

Thank you to everyone who made The Big Latch On 2019  a success! We can't wait to do it again in 2020. Stay tuned for more information!

Press Release August 14th, 2019:

ALMOST 60,000 PEOPLE SHOW THEIR SUPPORT FOR BREASTFEEDING AT SYNCHRONIZED BREASTFEEDING EVENT

On August 2, 3 and 4 2019, over 58,000 people around the world took part in the tenth Global Big Latch On, demonstrating their support for breastfeeding. 19,414 breastfeeding parents attended events held in their community and virtually through social media. At the specified time, over 18,500 children ‘latched’ and were breastfed.

 

With 814 events taking place in 28 countries, this synchronized breastfeeding event as part of World Breastfeeding Week supports and celebrates breastfeeding families in the community they live in. Our celebrations also saw 31 people take part in Working Wednesday and 25 people take part in Express Yourself – an event for those who exclusively express milk and those who donate milk.

 

Global Big Latch On Organiser Joanne Edwards commented: “This year was our milestone tenth anniversary year and as in every year prior, this event continues to inspire me as it supports more families each year and nurtures lasting cultural change. All the hosts who arranged an event in their community have my complete gratitude and I am so happy to have their support: the Global Big Latch On would not work without them. This event is about normalizing breastfeeding journeys, however they look and that's often not the same for everyone. Just a quick look on our social media feeds over this World Breastfeeding Week 2019 shows this. Thank you so much to everyone who took part and especially our sponsors Biokleen, A Cute Baby and Rumina.”

Please note that all events are either postponed or cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Stay tuned for further communication from the Waukesha Countty Breastfeeding Coalition!
