World Breast Feeding Week New Zealand
August 1-7 is World Breast Feeding Week. BabyBaby will have a competition starting tomorrow to help support your favorite breastfeeding organisation plus we will give you a chance to win your money back on our feeding pillow plus a $50.00 BabyBaby Skin Care voucher - more about that tomorrow so check back then.
Are you a breastfeeding mum and proud of it? Have you signed up for The Big Latch On?
Women's Health Action Trust is a not-for-profit organisation and every year during World Breastfeeding Week, they host the “Big Latch On”. The event is an opportunity for breastfeeding mothers to get together all over the country and simultaneously breastfeed. This is the event’s fifth year and each Big Latch On has attracted more women than the one before. Last year there were 1122 mothers and babies latched on and counted. The feedback they get from women who take part is that it is a wonderful event and we get many coming back with subsequent children.
So what are you waiting for sign up for the event in your area.
This year the Auckland Breastfeeding Network in Auckland is organising a region-wide "Big Latch On" event at the Hoyts Cinema Complex in Sylvia Park . Breastfeeding women from all over Auckland have registered to take part in the event. They are offering a free movie and spot prizes including a BabyBaby Gift Pack containing our Feeding Pillow and BabyBaby Skin Care. We also have sent 100 sample packs to our friends at the Timaru event.
Let us know if you are going to any of the events this year. We would love to hear from you and especially would like a photo of you using our feeding pillow!
