When you read the employee guidelines of a company, there might be some things that stand out. One mom read a section of the Target employee guide, and there was something in there that caught her by surprise. Now, she is making sure others know what it says.
This mother found some information about the breastfeeding policy of Target. There is wording in the guidelines that guests can breastfeed while in the store. Those who don’t want to breastfeed in the store can ask where they can go so that they are comfortable, but they are allowed to stay in the store instead of going outside. Mothers can breastfeed in dressing rooms.
Employees who see someone breastfeeding are not to approach the mother to ask her to leave. There are people who have posted comments about changing their shopping habits to include Target since this information has been made public.
Many people already like shopping at Target, but this is just the icing on the cake as mothers can feel a little more comfortable in knowing that there is a policy in support of breastfeeding mothers. This is a store that others could take a lesson from when it comes to how the employee guidelines are written.
