Breastfeeding-friendly Business

There is a good story in today’s Chronicle Herald (Nova Scotia) about a business owner who really goes out of her way to protect and promote mothers’ right to breastfeed in public. She has been using the Lunenburg & Queens Baby Friendly Initiative Committee’s package made for employers in order to help them demonstrate how to make nursing moms feel more comfortable, both as employees and as customers. She’s now talking about how it is easy for business to become breastfeeding-friendly. Quite neat.

  1. I agree it is a great article, but I take issue with the first statement in the blue box. Why start right out by undermining a woman’s confidence in her ability to breastfeed? The vast majority of women can provide all the nutrition their babies need for the first six months. We should empower them to choose to breastfeed and to make life choices that ensure that breastfeeding is a viable option.
