    Big Latch On 2012

    Sacramento area breastfeeding moms will descend on the West Steps of our State Capitol for a potluck and a shot at the record. Everyone is asked to be there by 10am so that we have time to get everyone registered and settled in to latch-on promptly at 10:30am.

    Feel free to bring blanket or chair to sit on for your comfort.

    What is the Big Latch On? Groups of breastfeeding women coming together at registered locations around the world to all latch on their child at a set time. All the breastfeeding women and children are latched on for one minute at the set time and are counted by the witnesses. The numbers are added up and we see if we can beat previous Big Latch On records or maybe even the world record!

    Aims of the Big Latch On:
    -Support for communities to identify and grow opportunities to provide ongoing breastfeeding support and promotion.
    -Raise awareness of breastfeeding support and knowledge available in communities.
    -Help communities positively support breastfeeding in public places.
    -Make breastfeeding a normal part of the day-to-day life at a local community level.
    -Increase support for women who breastfeed--women are supported by their partners, family, and the breastfeeding knowledge that is embedded in their communities.
    -Communities have the resources to advocate for coordinated appropriate and accessible breastfeeding support services.
