Breastfeeding has come a long way!
We are thrilled to see this banner hanging in Carson City promoting the “Breastfeeding Welcomed Here” campaign – a partnership between the Nevada Department of Health and Nevada Breastfeeding Coalition.
It’s Nevada law to allow a mom to breastfeed her child in any location – public or private. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the lack of support for breastfeeding is one of the obstacles to its success.
The goal of the campaign is to encourage more women to breastfeed their babies and breastfeed for a longer time by making the community friendlier to breastfeeding families. When you see the “Breastfeeding Welcomed Here” symbol, you’ll know that business supports the campaign and encourages the perception that breastfeeding is normal, accepted and welcome.
We are proud to support this pledge!
