What you need to know about breastfeeding in schools

If you have been in public school and found your breastfeeding in a restroom a violation, you should probably talk to your public agent.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that teachers should talk to parents before they introduce breastfeeding into a school environment.

The AAP also says that breastfeeding should not be discouraged in school settings.

What does this mean for you?

For the time being, the AAP recommends that public agents take a closer look at breastfeeding in school bathrooms to make sure that your child is comfortable and that the school is following the guidelines.

The most important thing to remember about breastfeeding at school is that it is safe, but also that it needs to be done in a respectful manner.

The breastfeeding you are about to experience at a school is not only a personal and private matter, but a matter of public safety and education.

Be safe and respectful at your public school!
