Kristy Kemp, creator of the Facebook page Breastfeeding Mama Talk, posted a photo of Target’s breastfeeding policy and started racking up the “likes” (40,384 at time of writing!). As is Target, which previously faced criticism from breastfeeding moms in 2011 after one woman’s negative experience.
Kemp urged people on her FB page to “Please share this everywhere especially on the Facebook pages of the businesses known to discriminate against breastfeeding!” With 16,193 shares at the time of writing, it seems people are doing just that.
Target confirmed to ABC News the sign “accurately reflects our policy.”
Spokesman Joshua Thomas told ABC News, “At Target, we want all of our guests to feel comfortable shopping with us. Our breast-feeding policy, which applies to all stores, is just one of the ways in which we support our guests.”
