WIC to present second annual Texas Big Latch On for breastfeeding moms
The City of Dallas Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program will host the second annual Texas Big Latch On at 7 p.m. Saturday Aug. 22 at 1660 Lone Star Parkway in Grand Prairie.
Breastfeeding moms enrolled in the WIC program will come together to “latch on” and breastfeed their child for one minute in the middle of the seventh inning of the Airhogs/Amarillo baseball game.
“This event is a great way for us to make the public aware of the importance of promoting, supporting and protecting breastfeeding,” said Dallas WIC Manager Darlene Irwin. More than 200 moms are expected to participate in the event.
