5th Annual Big Latch On
The Breastfeeding Project is thrilled to host our 5th Annual Big Latch On! The Big Latch On is an international event where women join together to break the world record for the most babies to breastfeed at the same time. We need witnesses too, so come out to show support even if you are not breastfeeding. The latch on takes place at 10:30 sharp so please arrive by 10:00 to get signed in.

Our event will take place from 9:30am-12:00 at 1470 Myrtle Lake Hills Road, Longwood, FL 32750.

Please RSVP here and invite your friends!

Milk Sharing Survey
Have you given, received or facilitated the exchange of breast milk? Our friends Shannon Carter and Beatriz Reyes-Foster at the University of Central Florida are conducting a research study on breast milk sharing. They are interested in any and all experiences, including wet nursing, donating pumped milk, receiving pumped milk, and milk banking. Their broader study focuses specifically on milk sharing in central Florida, but they welcome participants from any location to take their survey. Any personal information will be kept confidential. The survey can be accessed here:
