I'm in ca on a business trip, missing my nursling like crazy, but loving the things I keep finding that are so in line with the things I find important! This was in the Nordstrums I was in to use the restroom. What a wonderful accommodation!

Yes! I'm from Arkansas, and while my region is working on it, we aren't there yet. It is so refreshing to see an area where they encourage breastfeeding and make it normal!

California is also the one state I've heard makes mothers wait a month (presumably to attempt to breastfeed) before they can get free formula from WIC.

It's great huh:) I'm from Oregon but living in Texas and Texas doesn't have anything like they do over on the west coast! Enjoy the rest of your business trip:)

Depends on the city and wic office when I lived in riverside they were adamant about nursing than I moved back to San bernardino and they're for breast feeding but not like riverside
