Each year, our organization promotes and supports breastfeeding families within our own communities by hosting breastfeeding celebrations which include our iconic Latch Ons.
Our Big Latch is a part of the Global Big Latch On- where moms across the globe gather in groups, large and small, and nurse their babies for one minute at exactly 10:30am. This year this one of a kind event will take place on August 4th & 5th.
It's an amazing thing to be a part of. It's an empowering, unique and memorable experience for our families but most importantly our mothers. Don't miss out on this year's Breastfeeding World's Big Latch On events!

Breastfeeding World... changing lives one event at a time
It felt normal to be there. I was wearing my 15 month old. And it was early and messed up her dear beauty sleep, so she was nursing and napping as I walked around. Checking out all the vendors and booths, it just felt normal. I didn’t feel ashamed or worried if some side-boob was showing, or worried about any random male there yelling at me, because everyone was doing it! And it was beautiful!” -Katie Peede attendee from our 2016's Hamilton County Latch On
My favorite part of the event was being surrounded by other mamas and feeling the love we all have for our babies and for each other. I also loved the comment “when someone tells me I shouldn’t breastfeed in public I just want to put a heavy blanket over their head and watch them try to eat a hamburger” made by one of the attending moms.” – Emilee Valenti attendee from our 2016's Martha's Vineyard Latch On
This was my second time attending the big latch on in Times Square and I can’t say how happy and empowered I was to be amongst all these amazing breastfeeding women and advocates. When women gather and support each other, care for their children and all children, we are creating history and a more peaceful world.” – Sandra Laura Shanbhag attendee from our 2016's NYC Latch On
