The event runs from 9:30 a.m. - noon, and at 10:30 a.m., we will count all mothers who are pumping and providing breastmilk to their babies, as well as all breastfeeding mothers. Pregnant mothers are welcome to join in, too!

The Global Big Latch On takes place at registered locations around the world, where women gather together to breastfeed and offer peer support to each other. Their friends, family and community join this celebration to promote and support breastfeeding. As a worldwide peer support and community development event, it aims to strengthen national and global support for breastfeeding and to improve the health of children and women around the world.

The Big Latch On aims to protect, promote & support breastfeeding families by:
• Providing support for communities to identify and grow opportunities to provide on-going breastfeeding support and promotion in local communities.
• Raising awareness of breastfeeding support and knowledge available locally and globally.
• Helping communities positively support breastfeeding in public places.
• Making breastfeeding as normal part of day-to-day life at a local community level.
• Increasing support for women who breastfeed – women are supported by their partners, family and their communities.
• Ensuring communities have the resources to advocate for coordinated appropriate and accessible breastfeeding support services.
