About the event
Join other breastfeeding mamas and supporters for a fun event at locations throughout Aotearoa New Zealand! Building community support, one latch at a time.
The Big Latch On is an annual event where women gather together at registered venues across Aotearoa to breastfeed and offer peer support to other breastfeeding women in their community. The Big Latch On will be taking place over two days – Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd of August 2019 – to coincide with World Breastfeeding Week (1-7 August).
If you can’t attend a venue then join in with the ‘I Latched On’ breastfeeding selfie campaign! The selfie initiative was created to provide breastfeeding women who cannot attend a Big Latch On event the chance to participate online and encourage them to connect with other breastfeeding mums via social media sites such as Facebook. Post your breastfeeding selfie to your social media and use the hashtag #BigLatchOnNZ
Who can come
Family, whānau, friends and breastfeeding supporters are all welcome to attend alongside breastfeeding mums and children.
