This Is How You Do It

Like many businesses, the Chicago Children's Museum caters to kids and by extension, women and families. Unlike most businesses, they've taken a proactive stance to show their support of breastfeeding and the women who choose to nurse their babies. When you go to the Chicago Children's Museum you don't have to worry about an ignorant staffer harassing you if you have to nurse your baby. You don't have to wonder if there's a space for nursing moms if you prefer some privacy. Why? Because this sign is posted throughout the museum.

It is the international symbol for breastfeeding and the text below the picture reads "Please feel free to breastfeed or pump anywhere in this museum. If you would like some privacy, we do have a caregiver center, located in KidsTown on the 3rd floor."

I don't think I've ever seen anything like this and I have to give major props to the museum for being so welcoming to breastfeeding mothers. I know many of you who read this blog will be attending the BlogHer Conference in Chicago in July and bringing your kids with you. If you do, I hope you visit the museum and support them with your dollars. You can also send them a tweet of thanks. We're planning on visiting some family in the Windy City this summer and we'll definitely be stopping at the Chicago Children's Museum!
