Latch On, Sarasota!

Mark your calendars…. It’s back!

The Healthy Start Coalition of Sarasota County, Inc.. and the Breastfeeding Advocates of Sarasota County (BASC) are proud to present “Latch On Sarasota!”

Combining the Global Big Latch On and La Leche League’s “Live, Love, Latch” events, we will be joining other groups and organizations across the globe in an attempt to break the record for most babies simultaneously breastfeeding!

At precisely 10:30 am on Saturday August 5th, all breastfeeding moms (including pumpers and supplementers!) are invited to join in on this fun and exciting event. (Make sure to get there by 9:30 to pre-register!)

This year we are so excited to announce our partnership with the Junior League of Sarasota! As part of their Hunger Outreach initiative, the Junior League have donated these awesome “Eat Local” onesies to be given away at the event, and to all babies born in Sarasota during World Breastfeeding Week.

*Get there early – Registration begins at 9am. Onesies are first come, first serve with limited sizes/quantities available!*We will be back at the Sarasota Farmers Market this year, stayed tuned for our exact location and more details!

* No longer nursing but want to participate? Looking for something fun for your partner to do? *

We are seeking volunteers to assist with counting and registering participants. Please email ciera.coleman@healthystartsarasota.org if you are interested, or arrive by 9:45 and find Ciera at the registration booth!
