Big Latch OnTM - Friday 5th August
As part of the New Zealand celebrations for World Breastfeeding Week, Women's Health Action runs the Big Latch OnTM. The Big Latch OnTM is an event held at venues throughout the country where women and their babies (and children!) gather together and latch on at 10.30am to try to break the record for the most women breastfeeding simultaneously.
This year we had 1564 mums latched on and we broke the Big Latch On record!
