It’s World Breastfeeding Week from August 1-7th! Did you hear about The Big Latch On? On Saturday, August 6th, 2011 at 10:30am local time in locations across the USA, nursing mothers will gather to celebrate World Breastfeeding Week and try to break the record for the most women breastfeeding simultaneously. Our friends at Yummy Mummy in Manhattan is the closest location doing The Big Latch On. For more info on World Breastfeeding Week, go to La Leche USA’s site.
