The Great Latch ON
Our Mission is to “NORMALIZE” breastfeeding.
To help new mothers feel comfortable feeding their child in public and to make the public comfortable with seeing it. Once a month we will be holding a Great Latch On event – nursing mothers young and old will gather IN PUBLIC and nurse their babes.
