Big Latch-On 2013

Join us for the Big Latch-On at Wheeler Park in Flagstaff on August 3rd. Registration begins at 10 am and the latched babies will be counted at 10:30 am. The first 10 registrants will receive a 30 minute massage from Bod-E Healer Massage. We invite participants to bring a potluck item to share for an early lunch. All breastfeeding moms are welcome!

This year Chance Pedersen of the Great Latch-On and Perfect Chance Photography will be photographing the event and offering prints to the attending moms.

What is the Big Latch-On?
A Big Latch On is a lot of fun! Groups of breastfeeding women come together at registered locations around the world, at a set time they all latch on their child for one minute while being counted by witnesses. The numbers are added up and see if we beat previous Big Latch On records or maybe even the world record!
Why have a Big Latch-On?
