Breastfeeding Friendly Places

Breastfeeding is the natural way to feed a child with major health benefits for both mothers and babies. However many breastfeeding mothers choose not to breastfeed outside the comfort of their home because they feel unsupported to breastfeed in public places.

Hamilton’s Breastfeeding Coalition aims to work together with businesses, organizations, and agencies to ensure that families feel supported to breastfeed anytime, anywhere. With a few simple steps, businesses can create a breastfeeding friendly place that allows breastfeeding employees and patrons to feel welcomed and accepted.

Participants will receive a window decal to display their support for breastfeeding in the community.
