Here's an event that is not fun for the whole family. To commemorate the kick off of World Breastfeeding Week, New Baby New Paltz will be hosting the Big Latch On, an event dedicated to raising awareness about breastfeeding. The Big Latch On is observed around the world at designated sites, New Baby New Paltz is the official site for the Hudson Valley, at 10:30 am local time, participating mothers around the world will latch their little ones in order to promote breastfeeding in the community.

While the Big Latch On takes place worldwide, the events are only loosely connected. Instead, much of the organization happens at the local level, allowing organizers to tailor the event to their region. For the event all participating women and children are latched on for one minute at the set time and are then counted by the witnesses. The goal, when the final tally from all the events are counted, is to break last year's worldwide record of 14,536. For more information, check their website.
