Each year, the number of nursing mothers that join “The Big Latch On” event, is growing. Varna is participating for the third time in the initiative – the event took place today, July 31st, at 10 a.m. at the Nursing Spot at the garden of Karin Dom.
Almost 30 mothers gathered together today to show their support for the most natural way of feeding our children. 19 mothers in total nursed their kids at the same time for 1 minute. Weather we have improved last years’ record (14 536 mothers nursing at the same time) we will find out soon, after the world organization The Big Latch On summarizes the results.
The Big Latch On takes place for the first time in New Zealand in 2005 as part of World Breastfeeding Week (every year between 1-7 of August). A group of nursing mothers gather at particular spots all around the world, at the same time and in the extent of 1 minute nurse their children. After that, the mothers are being counted by witnesses and the number for the whole world is being gathered.
