Big Latch On!

Post by nikkitheknitter » Fri Jul 30, 2010 12:32 pm

Heyyyyyyyy there breastfeeding mamas,

The Big Latch On is now only one week away (August 6th at 10.30am) and we now have 117 venues registered from all over Aotearoa.

:bf: :bf: :bf: :bf: :bf: :bf: :bf:

However there are still some areas not represented like the North Shore of Auckland…! *ahem* It is not too late to register a venue and don’t forget you can hold a Big Latch On event anywhere: your house, your office, a local café, a park, a car, or even a plane! Anywhere as long as it is in NZ and you have two non participating witnesses.

To register a venue please go submit details from this page or to find a venue in your area you can view the google map on this page - use the zoom function to see more venues in your area - click the flags to see venue info. If you have any questions email isis@womens-health.org.nz

So... register away!! Or track down a local venue and make a plan to be there! Of course we are wanting to break the record again ;) Canada has apparently picked up on the success of the Big Latch On here and is attempting to beat the NZ record, damn them. Nothing like a bit of competition though! heh

Right. Spam over.

We have a new venue this year in Lower Hutt. It's at Kokiri Marae, 7-9 Barnes St, Seaview. Our previous venue in central Hutt is now used for a playgroup on Fridays.

If you have seen in the Hutt News the article that says "please contact Jo for catering" or something like that, please DON'T contact me for catering!! :lol: Don't know where that came from - I have enough trouble catering for my own family. However, we are providing a morning tea at the Latch On!

I'm planning on going in Blenheim, will practise with J this week tho as he doesn't usually :bf: during the day (and he's been saying no when I offer milk) and knowing my luck will repeat Kyan's Big Latch On performance at 9mths and be the only baby NOT latched :lol:
