La Leche League Shreveport/Bossier City hosted this event at at Air U on Sat and at Bayou Bounce on Sun. Around 40 came out and pledged their support and had fun! We made teething necklaces and enjoyed getting to know each other better while many of our little ones enjoyed bouncing.
Live, Love, Latch! is a National Breastfeeding Month (August 1-31) celebration presented by La Leche League USA and hosted by LLL Groups throughout the country. This was the second year for this annual event.
Live Love Latch! is an event to celebrate breastfeeding and to highlight breastfeeding support. Everyone in attendance signed a declaration of support. Family, friends, doctors, lactation consultants, midwives, businesses, legislators, and anyone else who supports breastfeeding in our community are welcome.
The key goal of Live, Love, Latch! is to raise awareness of how a supportive community can help nursing dyads breastfeed successfully. The secondary goal is to break the previous year’s record for breastfeeding supporters attending. 2014’s national record was 9,028! In the spirit of the Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding, this celebration provides an opportunity to educate everyone about how they can be supportive to breastfeeding families and how this natural way of parenting effects the community as a whole.
