Local events celebrate National Breastfeeding Month in Metro DC

Last week was World Breastfeeding Week, and August is National Breastfeeding Month. My family and I celebrated by attending a local Big Latch On Event. The Big Latch (or BLO) on is an event that takes place on the first days of World Breastfeeding Week where moms go to latch their babies at the same time to be counted in a world-wide total. The goal each year is to host enough breastfeeding moms to break the previous record. Tallies for this year have exceeded 9,000. In Northern Virginia alone, there were at least three BLO events. In DC, the month will close out with the Breastfeeding Center for Greater Washington‘s annual Breastival.  Read More
