In honor of National Breastfeeding Month, La Leche League of Mustang/Yukon and La Leche League of Edmond will be hosting local events this year. Get out and have fun with them in support of breastfeeding! Dates, times, and locations are noted below; for more details, please see our blog post for July 2016.
"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.
Live, Love, Latch! events are designed to not only celebrate breastfeeding, but to also 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. Anyone who attends will be counted - whether breastfeeding or not.
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."
