MEDIA RELEASE – Tuesday 5th August

The Global Big Latch On, an International Synchronized Breastfeeding Celebration for World Breastfeeding WeekFinal Count

On Friday 1st August and Saturday 2nd August at 10:30am each day, women and their children came together round the world and breastfed simultaneously as part of the Global Big Latch On.

This year the Big Latch On has grown with 826 locations registered across 31countries. Our final count numbers are as follows (all numbers are provisional):

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.


“We are so close to the Global Big Latch On record (14,536 set in 2013) and this year we have grown to include more countries than ever before and to become more inclusive. We look forward to next year with excitement and we know that numbers are not the whole story. This event builds communities one latch at a time, increases support for all families and helps to change global culture around breastfeeding. It is really important that we continue to make breastfeeding in public a normal and supported part of having a child.”

“Congratulations to everyone.”
