Have you heard of the breastfeeding challenge? It is an interesting event that has been started in Canada by the Quintessence foundation. The foundation had heard of an event in Australia called the “latch on” where people were in the same place and latched their baby all at the same time. They decided to try it at first only in BC and it was so popular that now it is all across Canada. The goal is to have the biggest number of mothers latching their babies at the same time at 11am. It is a fun event where mothers get together. What a great way to help promote breastfeeding! Now many countries are doing Latch on at the same time. The record actually is from the Philippines in 2006 where 3738 women latched their babies at the same time.
I remember participating with my twins when they were almost a year old and I had a great time. I encourage every nursing mother to attend the event!
