The Big Latch On at Landry Park was a great success! 37 mamas came out to join us and our final count was 39 babies latched (go tandem nursing!).
Thank you to Mini Mi Photography and Tricia Cassi, IBCLC, and the WIC State Breastfeeding Coordinator at the Vermont Department of Health, who came out to photograph the event. We were thrilled to see that both WCAX and FOX came out to cover the story!

Final numbers for the global Latch On were tallied at 13,798 which was just shy of last year’s count of 14,173. Big thank you to Ray Coffey, the Community Services Director at Winooski’s Park and Rec, for the use of Landry Park for a second year in a row, WIC for providing cute breastfeeding pins and to the Chittenden County Breastfeeding Coalition for the goodie bags!
Last, but not least, a HUGE thank you to all the mamas, babies, and supportive family and friends who came out – we couldn’t have done this event without YOU!
