Breastfeeding Mannequins Have Now Been Rolled Out In Shop Window Displays

How cool are these breastfeeding mannequins?!

A mall in Colombia has launched these nursing models into shops as part of a new initiative to help end the stigma surrounding breastfeeding in public.

The mannequins have been placed in store windows of Bogota Centro Mayor – the largest shopping mall in the country.

The initiative was launched by Amigos de la Lactiancia (Friends of Breastfeeding), who support mums that have been shamed for nursing in public.

Since they were introduced, there has been huge support for the mannequins on social media.

According to Ruptly, attitudes towards breastfeeding in public remain divided in the country.

One follower said: “This is an excellent idea.”

“Beautiful,” another commented.

“I think that it’s something that draws attention so that everyone knows that there are special places for mothers to breastfeed their babies,” says one follower.

“I believe that these spaces should be everywhere but with a suitable place so they do not disturb people who do not like to see breastfeeding mothers.”
