The Global Big Latch On 2014 — Atlanta

Vain Mommy at The Big Latch OnHappy World Breastfeeding Week!

This past weekend, I, with the help of other nursing mommas Janice Ehm, Olivia Henderson and Elizabeth Stubbs (an amazing doula) organized Atlanta’s only “inside the perimeter” (ITP) Big Latch On at Piedmont park!

It. Was. AWESOME!

It was awesome, to be surrounded by so many nursing moms — to nurse in public without fear or shame — to have so much support from our significant others (SO) and by-standers alike — to meet a mom who breastfed for over 3 years and said it loud and proud!!

This year I have had the honor of being a part of amazing communities of women! When women unite powerful things happen. It’s a beautiful thing!

What in the World is The Big Latch On?

The Big Latch OnThe Big Latch On is a global event that brings nursing moms together to nurse — “latch on” for one minute at the same time.Ari & Girl at Latch On

The purpose of this event is to encourage others to see breastfeeding as a normal part of day-to-day life. GASP! Breastfeeding normal?! Crazy isn’t it. But it seems that some don’t see it as such — Boobies are for play not work.

Last years (2013) record was 14536 moms nursing simultaneously world-wide.  I can’t wait for this years results! Hopefully we squashed it!

It is so easy to host a Big Latch On. Put it on your to do list for next year and be a part of something big and beautiful!

[24] Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. [25] And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
