    Maryland Breastfeeding Coalition has launched a Breastfeeding Welcome Here campaign to foster a supportive environment for mothers to breastfeed their babies in public. Through the campaign, local businesses placed a “Breastfeeding Welcome Here” logo in clear view for all to see upon entering the business establishment. The businesses also pledged to provide a welcoming environment, where breastfeeding mothers may sit in any area open to the general public and enjoy a friendly attitude from staff and management while breastfeeding. Staff members were trained on how to handle complaints about breastfeeding and inform those who raise concerns that breastfeeding in public is protected by Maryland law. Click here for a list of businesses who have taken the pledge.

    The aim of the campaign is to build public awareness and acceptance of breastfeeding in public and to increase breastfeeding duration by empowering women to breastfeed in public in safe locations. Click here for more information.
