On July 31st, groups of breastfeeding women are coming together at registered locations (including Lawrenceburg) around the world to all latch on their child at a set time. The Big Latch On supports communities with identifying and growing opportunities to provide ongoing breastfeeding support and promotion.
Aims of the Big Latch On
•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.
