The Big Latch-On!

I am really excited to be part of an event being held to celebrate World Breastfeeding Week.

A Big Latch On is a lot of fun! Groups of breastfeeding women come together at registered locations around the world, at a set time they all latch on their child for one minute while being counted by witnesses. The numbers are added up and see if we beat previous Big Latch On records or maybe even the world record!

Our event will be held in FRANKSTON and is being hosted by a small group of breastfeeding activists and mothers who live in the area. We hope to attract breastfeeding mums and babies from around Melbourne and beyond and let our community know the importance of supporting breastfeeding.

We all know how important breastfeeding is and this way we can show everyone just how much we all value breastfeeding and support all women as they grow the next generation.
Plus it's a really good way to spend time with other women & families, and have a lot of fun, maybe a coffee and some cake as well!
The event will be held at the Frankston Arts Centre, Davey Street Frankston, August 3rd, from 10am - 11am, with the official count of babies on boobs at 10.30. Mums who are no longer breastfeeding can still come along to show their support and highlight how breastfeeding has been, and will always be, an important part of motherhood for many women.
You can learn more about the event at and even sign up to host your own - it doesn't need to be huge, You can also follow along on Facebook
