Well, the numbers are in, but unfortunately, last years’ numbers were not broken.

Here is the statement from the Big Latch On…
“This year the Global Big Latch On has grown to include more countries than ever before and we had 13,798 Breastfeeding Children counted during the one minute latch, 14,173 breastfeeding women and over 23,906 people supporting. We are so close to the latch record of 14,536 set last year. Thank you so much to everyone who was involved with this years Global Big Latch On, we appreciate all your work to support to build community and change culture. Who is going to help us beat the record next year?”

Although the record was not broken, we had a great time with all the families who came out, and proudly represented 14 mom/baby nursing pairs in Visalia this year!

Biggest congratulations to Elly Chatten for winning the nursing mother’s gift basket, and to Cecilia May for winning the double electric breast pump! And a special thank you to Heather Henderson for coming out and giving us a helping hand with face painting and counting! And sincerest thanks to all the mommies, babies, and families who came out and helped make this year’s latch on a special day to remember!

We’d also like to send out a huge thank you to Kari Soares for her determination in bringing The Milky Movie movie screening to Visalia, and to Jocelyn Correa of Diaper parties by Jocelyn for sponsoring the screening! For those who missed it this movie was a capturing and relevant movie about breastfeeding in our time, highly recommended! There is talk about doing a second screening in the near future so if you are interested please let us know!

Here are the day’s photos…
(We apologize for the blurryness of some of the pics, although we didn’t have anyone come out to capture the event for us, we did our best at multitasking: trying to run the event and snap photos at the same time!)
Hope you enjoy!!
