President Trump recently signed into law the Fairness for Breastfeeding Mothers Act. The Act provides that federal buildings that are open to the public must provide a lactation room available for use by both federal employees and any other members of the public who are breastfeeding. The designated lactation room must be separate from a bathroom and deemed hygienic.
This is certainly not groundbreaking legislation, but it follows the trend in supporting the prevalence of lactation space in both public and private property. No family should be forced to feed their child in a filthy bathroom, so I applaud the federal government in its continued effort to support and encourage breastfeeding. Though there is still a long way to go!
