Big Latch On

I was so excited to participate in The Big Latch On for the 4th time this year. 
Ellie was about 6 months our first year. We were one of 5687 latches in the US alone.
When she was about 18 months she was too distracted to actually nurse at the event, but 8862 other moms latched on globally!
At about 2 and a half, she was again not willing to cooperate. 37 moms at our location and 14536 globally latched on though.
The pictures above were from later those days.
This year though she was excited for the "contest" and nursed along with Penny for more than the full minute along with the 89 other moms at our location (some of which were also tandem nursing, but only moms
count, not babies).
This year 13,798 children breastfeeding during the one-minute count
14,173 breastfeeding women attended
23,906 people attended registered Global Big Latch On locations to support breastfeeding.
After, she said "I think I won the contest!"
When mommies nurse their kids, everyone wins!
What a great experience!
