Big Latch On 2011

Post by nikkitheknitter » Wed Jun 22, 2011 9:48 am

Hey!

Big Latch On is coming up and we are getting there with venues now registered all over the country... and plenty more time for new venues to be registered ;)

You can check out the Big Latch On map to see if there's a Big Latch On event happening near you (zoom in to your area), or you can contact us at breastfeeding@womens-health.org.nz if you'd like to run your own event (there's prizes in it for you!) and need some ideas or help.

See http://www.biglatchon.org.nz for more information. Or join our Big Latch On facebook page for the latest updates!

You could always host one next year even if you're not bf-ing yourself? But yay for this year!

Hmm.. is there something more definite for a venue for Timaru? I know Plunket normally organise it, but haven't heard anything this year so far...

Well, Katie from CDHB will definitely be holding one - not sure how far through she is with planning yet. I could email her and see if she has any more info yet?

Is there anyone here from Whanganui that is interested in helping out a young mama who would like to co-ordinate a venue? She's just got in contact with us but would like a hand if anyone is keen on a good old collaborative effort?

I'll be putting together an article with some helpful tips on organising venues for our next newsletter. They've been hosted all over the show in the past: people's homes, plunket centres, cafes, council chambers, food courts. Every latched on mama counts! (Well... every latched on mama verified by 2 witnesses at a registered Big Latch On event counts :wink: )

We are more than 30kms from Hamilton so wouldn't make a special trip just for this. Sometimes the local birthing unit holds an event, and a couple of the local LLL groups used to join up to host an event at Wahoroa Cheese Factory cafe but I haven't heard mention of either this year

Hrmmm... a couple of events held in Morrinsville last year but that isn't terribly helpful either, is it?

Hopefully the LLL groups do the cheese factory cafe again... sounds so yummmmmmmm. =P~
