Event Details

The Global Big Latch On is an annual event that helps to promote and support breastfeeding. It takes place each year at registered locations around the world and this will be the 9th year The Nest has hosted this event here in Lakeland. We are excited to join together with other lactation professionals within our community as we work to increase awareness for the resources and support available to our local breastfeeding families!

This year, we’ll be doing things a little differently – drive-in style! We have reserved space in the RP Funding parking lot on the evening of Friday, August 6th. Load your car up with your nursling(s) and whoever else might like to join you for this fun event, enter the parking lot and we’ll be there to direct you where to go. Of course, we will still be giving out our awesome swag bags and tickets to win one of the many coveted door prizes we have each year! Participants will stay in their cars for the official Latch On, which will be held at 6pm so you’ll want to be sure to be settled in the parking lot before then.

The Latch On fun will continue the next day! On Saturday, we’ll be posting pictures and fun facts about the number of latches we counted the evening before, as well as the WINNERS of our door prizes!

The pandemic has really put an interesting twist on our Big Latch On gatherings but we are so excited to be back in person with you this year, even though we’ll need to be appropriately socially-distant. We can’t wait to see you then!!
