A total of 196 babies and toddlers were officially recorded during the global synchronized breastfeeding event titled ‘Hakab Na! 2016’ held August 6, 2016 at The Events Center of Limketkai Mall in Cagayan de Oro City to promote and raise awareness of the benefits of breastfeeding.

The number of participants was initially pegged at 186 but after verification, the final count was 196 including 193 mothers. Some mothers have two babies latched on. It also exceeded last year’s event which drew 120 mothers. Organized by the Modern Nanays of Mindanao, the event was in celebration of the World Breastfeeding Week (August 1-7).
