Are you ready to find out the details for the Big Latch On San Diego 2019???

This year’s San Diego Big Latch On event is going to be our biggest and greatest one yet! Join the San Diego Breastfeeding Center, and our amazing co-hosts - Gymboree San Diego and Kindred Bravely, in a fun-filled event for the whole family!  We are returning to Liberty Station, but this time we will be in the HUGE grassy area, next to the playground and bathrooms on Cushing Road. All participants will have exclusive, free access to on-site Gymboree classes, a yoga class, and a babywearing workshop. So, while you wait for the actual Latch On to occur, you can grab some coffee/breakfast at one of the many delicious restaurants, hang out in the playground, attend a class/workshop, peruse the vendor booths (you won’t want to miss these!), and bid on our awesome opportunity drawing items!


If you are a new to the breastfeeding world, you might be wondering what the heck is the Big Latch On?  The Big Latch On, is an event that started in New Zealand in 2005 during World Breastfeeding Week.  The mission of the Big Latch On is to protect, promote, and support breastfeeding women and each year groups of breastfeeding women come together at locations all around the world to latch on their children at a designated time and day in honor of this mission and to attempt to set a new record!  Our Big Latch On event will also serve as a major fundraiser for our non-profit organization, the San Diego Breastfeeding Center Foundation.


Here are the preliminary details.  We will begin to share more about the event over the next few weeks!

When is the Big Latch On?

The Big Latch On event will take place on Saturday, August 3, 2019 from 8:30am-noon.  The actual Latch On (children latching on to set a world record) will take place at exactly 10:30am, so don’t be late!  

Where will the Big Latch On take place?

Liberty Station Park in Point Loma, right next to the playground/bathrooms on Cushing Road.  

Is there a charge to participate?

Not at all!  This event is totally FREE!

Can I bring my family or is this just for breastfeeding parents and child/ren?

This is a totally family-friendly event! There will be plenty of things to keep older children entertained, so bring them all!

Please stay tuned for registration and agenda details!

Wondering how you and your business can get involved?
