The 2016 "Big Latch On!"

The 2016 Big Latch On at Camp Jordan Park was a great success with 112 children “latched on “ during the timed count!  This helped contribute to breaking the world record, which is now set at 17,223 children breastfeeding simultaneously.  More importantly, the event helped bring our community together in support of breastfeeding families.  Did you miss this year's Latch On event?  Stay plugged in for next year's event and get other important information throughout the year by following CABC's Facebook page.
