Breastfeeding Friendly and Un:(Friendly Establishments

This page will serve as a directory of Breastfeeding Friendly and Unfriendly establishments.

After reading countless accounts of moms being asked to stop breastfeeding at retail locations, I thought it would serve a purpose to have a list of places that both support breastfeeding moms and those that do not.

Wouldn’t you like to know? I sure would.

If your establishment is submitted as an Unfriendly one, and you have made efforts to in-service your staff and make changes to support breastfeeding mommies, please submit your rebuttal to me via the comment on that listing.

Please submit the establishment on the form below. Include your personal experience or if you are the owner, express your support of breastfeeding moms.

Business owners: I have FREE window clings to display your support for breastfeeding. Use the contact form to the left to request a window cling that says “Breastfeeding Supportive Establishment” on it. I will pay Shipping.

Submission Guidelines:

  • Entries/reviews must be a minimum of 300 words.
  • Entries MUST be your experience, please do not report 3rd person stories here.

As soon as this page begins gathering a number of entries I will organize them by state.

Have A Breastfeeding Friendly OR UNfriendly establishment you want to add?
