Burlington Area Big Latch On 

What is the Big Latch On? Groups of breastfeeding women coming together at registered locations around the world to all latch on their child at a set time. All the breastfeeding women and children are latched on for one minute at the set time and are counted by the witnesses. The numbers are added up and we see if we can beat previous Big Latch On records! The Big Latch On supports communities with identifying and growing opportunities to provide ongoing breastfeeding support and promotion.

This year there will be two events/chances to be involved (accommodating for both working at stay-at home moms)! The two events will be this Friday and Saturday both at 9:45 am at Landry Park in Winooski.

Cost: Free
