August 7, 2016

McALLEN — Holding their babies to their breasts, 30 local mothers gathered at the McAllen Public Library’s Children’s Department, ready to nurse their children in unison with the world-wide initiative, the Global Big Latch On.

Over the span of a minute, from 10:30 a.m. to 10:31 a.m. on Saturday, depending on the time zone, mothers in registered locations around the world breastfed as a community to promote the health of women and children.
