Target Has Hit the Bullseye for Breastfeeding Mothers
After years of ousting breastfeeding moms, calling security and generally harassing women who breastfeed in their stores, Target now has a Breastfeeding Policy that is exemplary.
Breastfeeding Guests may openly breastfeed in our stores or ask where they can go to breastfeed their child. When this happens, remember these points:
- Target’s policy supports breastfeeding in any area of our stores, including our fitting rooms, even if others are waiting
- If you see a woman breastfeeding in our stores, do not approach her
- If she approaches you and asks for a location to breastfeed, offer the fitting room (do not offer the restroom as an option).
- If you have any questions, partner with your leader.
OMG, did a LC write this?!
Now the rest of you retailers, follow Target’s lead. They have hit the target on this one!
