151 mothers with babes in arms across Singapore breastfed their infants at 10am on 8 Aug 2007 as part of the Guinness record attempt for the largest worldwidesynchronised breastfeeding event. It was organised by Nurturers of theEarth, a Filipino support group that promotes the benefits of breastfeeding. InSingapore, the Breastfeeding Mothers' Support Group coordinated the effort atfour locations - MacPherson Community Club, KK Womens' and Childrens'Hospital, the National University Hospital and Mount Alvernia Hospital.
It so happened that on the day we were to be discharged from hospital, there was a Synchronized Breastfeeding Worldwide to be attempted in one single day, August 8, 2007 at 10am (Singapore time). This is apparently an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for Simultaneous Breastfeeding in multiple sites (17,000 nursing mothers, soon to be credited by Guinness) established by the Philippines on May 2, 2007.
