The Big Latch On

For the third year in a row, Pueblo WIC hosted the “Big Latch On and World Breastfeeding Celebration” at the Pueblo Mall. Twenty local vendors and community programs ranging from Catholic Charities to Parks and Recreation participated and each hosted activities to engage attendees (e.g. kids yoga, henna, face painting). Each attendee received an event “passport” and were eligible to win donated items if they completed each vendor’s activity.

This year’s celebration was a huge success with 50 successful latches and 285 attendees - 62 breastfeeding moms, 141 children and 82 breastfeeding supporters - almost twice the numbers from last year. A special and well-deserved shout out to the Pueblo WIC staff for all the hard work and planning that went into this year’s World Breastfeeding Celebration!
