Nursing Nooks In Store

These ‘nursing nooks’ or ‘feeding stations’ include cosy chairs and pillows and are being trialled in a few shops in the United States.

Target representative Kristen Welker told Scary Mummy that the company is testing and evaluating to see how well these sections work for nursing mums.

“In late 2016, we began testing designated nursing rooms at two stores in Minnesota,” she says.

“We will continue to evaluate guest feedback on this test to determine broader rollout to additional stores and we always appreciate hearing from our guests about how we can better meet their needs.

“Fitting rooms are available for women who wish to breastfeed their babies privately, even if others are waiting to use the fitting rooms.

“Guests who choose to breastfeed in public areas of the store are welcome to do so without being made to feel uncomfortable. Additionally, store leaders are empowered to make decisions that help meet the needs of the guests they serve.”
