A department store I go to frequently and purchase most of my baby items from has really nice parent rooms, seperate from the bathrooms, with chairs for feeding, changing mats. a gated soft play area, etc.. where both moms and dads are welcome. There are a couple of little curtained off areas which I assume are for breastfeeding, if one wishes, but I've seen plenty of women just nursing in the chairs in the main section.<br><br>
On the outside of the door to this room is a green sign with a picture of a bottle on it. Every time I see it it bothers me a bit that there is nothing there to welcome breastfeeding or even mention it as an option. This department store has a good name for itself and I think they might be open to a customer suggestion but am not sure how to approach them about using the <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/winner.jpg" style="border:0px solid;" title="BFSymbol"> symbol on their door in addition to or instead of the bottle.<br><br>
Any ideas how I should tackle this? A letter, a face-to-face meeting, an email? I don't want to come across as preachy or pushy, but I also want to be convincing and informative.

i dont know how to approach them, but ggod luck. the nursing room at our mall in houston had a sign that said "nursing room" but had a pic of a baby getting getting its diaper changed. i think most stores probably dont know about it

Very soon, you will be able to download a kit from the Mothering website for this very purpose. It will include talking points, user guidelines, and references for promoting the use of the symbol.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/winner.jpg" style="border:0px solid;" title="BFSymbol">
