Normalizing Breastfeeding

Yay Target!!! So proud of Target for stepping up and supporting breastfeeding women!  Let me start by saying, as a baby nurse, I support a woman’s right to feed her baby however she can/wishes.  I think it’s equally important that a breastfeeding mother have options while out and about.  There is a stigma still associated with breastfeeding in public places.  In the U.S., many women are faced with feeding in a toilet stall in a public restroom.  It makes me cringe!! My sister and I were at Target today and her two week old woke up for a feeding.  It was her first outing since Mollie was born, so she had planned to take her to the car for feedings.  She had, however, heard that breastfeeding moms take precedence in the dressing rooms at Target and sure enough she was right.   The women’s side was full, so she was given a fitting room on the men’s side, no questions asked!!!!  Paula, a Target employee in Port Orange, Florida, went out of her way to provide my sister with  the largest room.  Thank you!!!
