On Saturday, August 6, 2016, I once again was able to participate in the global Big Latch On event. My first experience with the Big Latch On was in 2014, when the lactation consultant from the Harlan, Iowa hospital – who also was the nurse on call when my daughter was born – hosted the event. My daughter was nine months old, and even though I always knew I wanted to breastfeed, I didn’t realize how passionate I would become about it (or birth!) until I became a mom. So passionate, in fact, that I decided to host my OWN Latch On the next year (which I blogged about here). 2016 marked my second year of hosting a latch on, my third year of breastfeeding, and my first year of tandem nursing as I was now breastfeeding not only my two and a half year old, but also her three month old sister.
