Mothers Breastfeed To Beat World Record

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

In honor of national breastfeeding week, mothers in Bozeman attempted to set a world record for the most number of women breastfeeding in a minute.

The nation wide event needed more than 3,541 mothers to breastfeed on Friday in order to break the record.

26 Bozeman mothers participated in the Big Latch On event in Beall Park on Friday. Mothers said breastfeeding is much more than just the healthy nutrition for their babies.

"There's just such a connection and just so personal, loving and caring," said Stephanie Penland, Bozeman resident. "It's just one of the most natural things you can do with your child and you can do it anywhere, anytime."

Organizers tell us they plan on making this an annual event in Bozeman.
