Here’s your chance to Live, Love, Latch! in 2018
Stacy Raite, LLL of Westfield, New Jersey. Live, Love, Latch! Committee Coordinator
Parenting can be exciting, challenging, and overwhelming, and the happiest time in our lives. Having community support can make all the difference in our experiences – especially when it comes to breastfeeding.
Whether you are planning to nurse, currently nursing, nursed in the past, or want to show support for those who are currently breastfeeding and for your local La Leche League Group, Live, Love, Latch! events are a great way to do so and a fun day for you.
Live, Love, Latch! is a National Breastfeeding Month celebration presented by La Leche League USA and hosted by LLL Groups throughout the country. National Breastfeeding Month is August 1-31. This year’s events are nationally sponsored by MILK Nursingwear and Leading Lady.
Live, Love, Latch! events are designed not only to celebrate breastfeeding but also to highlight community support. All in attendance at a Live, Love, Latch! event will be counted as participants who declare their support of breastfeeding in their local community and beyond.
Also, as an added goal, we will aim to break the previous year’s record for number of breastfeeding supporters who came out in a show of support. Any one who attends – whether breastfeeding or not – will be counted.
This celebration provides an opportunity to educate family, friends, healthcare providers, and other community members about how they can support breastfeeding, and also emphasizes the value of the support network behind every nursing dyad.
*Events must be hosted by a La Leche League USA Group. If you are not a Leader, please contact your local Group to find a Leader who would like to co-host with you.For any additional information, please visit our website or email us at [email protected]
