While it is completely legal in New York City for mothers to breastfeed in public, incidents of public shaming and requests to “cover up” occur often. As a response, Fort Greene’s La Leche League has been encouraging businesses to promote their establishments as “breastfeeding safe zones” with super clear stickers and signs, printed by the Department of Health. Black Forest Brooklyn has happily accepted, posting a sign that says, “Breastfeeding Is Welcome Here” in its front window. It’s a small gesture, but an important one that can help eradicate a long-standing taboo.
