Across Waikato, across New Zealand and around the world, mums will be getting together at registered Big Latch On venues to breastfeed their babies and promote the benefits of breastfeeding.
More than 15 venues are listed in the Waikato, ranging from Birthcare in Huntly, to Matatoki Farm Cheese in the Coromandel, and Rialto’s Lido Cinema in Centre Place, Hamilton.
Find a Big Latch On venue near you here – and more information about the Big Latch On annual event which is now world-wide. Most events take place this Friday 31 July but some are on Saturday 1 August. Check the date carefully.
The events kick off World Breastfeeding Week 1-7 August, which this year has a theme of “Let’s make it work” – supporting women to combine breastfeeding and work.
During the week Waikato DHB will be telling the stories of a number of women and their work colleagues who are successfully incorporating breastfeeding into their work environment.
