HAKAB NA! 2017: Get Ready For The Big Latch On!

My darling bubba's latched on and is breastfeeding as I blog about this- Great! Yes?!

Oh well,  it is almost the time of the year again for all the mummy tribes to unite for the Big Latch On. As August is breastfeeding awareness month, HAKAB NA! 2017 - the biggest gathering of breastfeeding supporters, families and advocates- will be happening on 5th August 2017.

This event hosted by the online support group, Breastfeeding Pinays, will be held at Smart-Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City.  At the very core of the event will be the Big Latch On (BLO), an international activity where breastfeeding moms all over the world will simultaneously get their babies to latch on and altogether breastfeed for or within a minute to set a world record. The event aims to promote both the health and economic reasons for breastfeeding. It also aims to share an awareness that breastfeeding is all normal and natural and that mothers should not be shamed or be ashamed for breastfeeding even in public places.

I support breastfeeding because I believe in the benefits my milk can provide my son.

This event is also supported by the Department of Health (DOH), Philippines.

  1. I am considering to attend the hakab event happening simultaneously in Alabang. I have not finalized registration because It might also be the schedule to be given for my son's baptism. Where do you stay?

  2. I would love to attend the event but it’s too far from my place. Will you be joining the Hakab Na! 2017?
