The big Latch On Event is in honor of World Breastfeeding Week, which is held every year from August 1 to 7.
I promised you I would share with you the article.... there is also a 3 photo slide show (Kit Kat and I are number 2!) The article is soooooooooo wonderful! It is so positive.... and Marie (the writer) even mentioned WHO (The World Health Organization) and how they recommend breastfeeding for 2 years and beyond!!!!! Well you can imagine my HAPPINESS with that! WOW! In a small town (not really small... but small enough) it is nice to have that information known!
So here is the Breastfeeding provides ample benefits to newborns article and the photo is below!
