Are you a nursing mama? Join us for Portland's Big Latch On, and help break the record for the most women breastfeeding simultaneously!
All over Portland, OR nursing mamas will be celebrating breastfeeding and World Breastfeeding Week together as we have fun while making history. We will be putting Portland on the map as one of the world's most breastfeeding-supportive cities as we try to see how close Portland can get to the world record of the most women in one city breastfeeding at the same time. To add to the fun a bit, our first goal is to see if we can beat New Zealand's record of 1299 mamas breastfeeding at the same time. I think we can!
Nurture is one of the many registered venues; find one close to you and join in the fun! There will be refreshments, prize packages, and an opportunity to connect with other mamas. If you feel shy about breastfeeding in public, this will be a wonderful event to get out and give it a try with support all around! Melissa Cole of Luna Lactation will be at Nurture providing her warm encouragement and breastfeeding wisdom.
The Big Latch On is on Friday, August 6th, 2010
Please arrive at 10am so we can register and get settled before the big count down at 10:30am.
