Organised by Norfolk support charity Breastfeeding Mum Meets, the Norwich event will see up to 250 babies and toddlers feed at the same time in Castle Meadow Gardens. Registration opens at 9am for the latch on at 10:30am. There will also be lots of fun activities for all the family and local support information.
