Daycare and Breast Feeding

Bookmark and Share

Is your baby in daycare and are you breastfeeding him? If so, have you ever run into any problems with the daycare center? Two moms, one in Ohio, and the other in Michigan, have.
In Ohio, a daycare center charged a mom an extra $50 per week because she was bringing in pumped breastmilk for her baby. (Click here for an update on the story). And in Michigan, a mom was restricted from breastfeeding her child in front of other children.
This story was first reported in the Motherwear Blog, The Lactivist and Breastfeeding123. The question is, is this a pervasive problem or are these isolated incidents? Tell us if you’ve had a similar experience.

One Response to “Daycare and Breast Feeding”

At my daughter’s daycare center, a parent can bring in any kind of milk they want their child to have (from the breast, formula, cow’s, etc…) and a Mom is always welcome to come and nurse her child…even rocking comfortably in the rocking chair in the infants’ classrooms. In fact, you often see moms nursing their children in the classrooms, common areas, etc…in fact, it’s a very social and fun place to nurse.
