All around the world Saturday morning women and their babies took part in what's known as The Big Latch On.

It's a time for mother's to try and break previous records of the most women breast feeding at once and it's all part of World Breastfeeding Week. All the breastfeeding women and children are latched on for one minute at the set time and are counted by the witnesses.

KOB found pictures on twitter showing women from Mexico, Scotland, and all over the U.S. latching on at 10:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

Moms from the Albuquerque area also latched on. Dar a Luz Birth & Health Center posted on Facebook that 53 women latched. 

According to The Big Latch On website 20,144 women participated all around the world.
