We are excited to announce that the 2019 Big Latch On will be held at the Eastgate Shopping Centre, 20 Buckleys Road, Linwood on Friday August 2nd. The event runs from 9:30am, with the big count of all pēpi breastfeeding at once at 10:30am on the dot.
The Big Latch On event has been running in Aotearoa, New Zealand since 2005 and is part of World Breastfeeding Week celebrations all over the world. #WBW2019 will call on everyone to work together to support breastfeeding māmā.
The Eastgate Shopping Centre’s Big Latch On event is one of many taking place all over Aotearoa New Zealand in celebration of breastfeeding for māmā and their whānau. This is the first time this popular event is to be held at Eastgate, which is Christchurch’s only breastfeeding friendly certified mall. Morning tea will be provided, we will have spot prizes, and Natural Magic will entertain the toddlers with songs and a puppet show.
All breastfeeding māmā and supporters in the community are warmly invited to join in the Big Latch On. Māmā who are unable to make it to a venue can take part virtually via #BrelfieNZ, flooding Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with their breastfeeding selfies.
