The Big Latch On Kaitaia

Te Rarawa

Other Community provider

Region: Northland District

Friday 31st July, 10am-12pm


Host Name: Amelia

This year the Big Latch On 2020 is going virtual! Usually we would meet up in person and have some yummy kai, lots of laughs, some prizes, breastfeeding, and time to chat and meet new friends. This year we will meet up on Zoom, still breastfeed, still have prizes and hopefully meet new friends and catch up with old ones too. At around 10.30am we will count all the breastfeeding that is happening. If you are breastfeeding more than one child- tandem feeding, twins, triplets! That's 2 or 3 latches!!! You can also be included in the latch count if you are using a supplemental nursing system or nipple shield; expressing milk (hand or pump) or by bottle feeding your child. We will count the number of children feeding and the total number of people who come out to show their support, so invite as many friends and family members as you can. We recognise that everyone’s breastfeeding journey looks different and we want the Big Latch On to be as fun and inclusive as possible, while still reaching our aims of positively supporting breastfeeding in public and making it a normal part of day to day life. We are looking forward to seeing you on the 31st of July for our first ever virtual Big Latch On.
