Viral photo... After Ruby’s photo of the 10 military moms went viral, the military released an official, service-wide policy on breastfeeding. The 7-point plan designed to protect and support breastfeeding soldiers was met with a warm welcome.
Viral photo... The policy means that breastfeeding military moms now have access to a private area with clean water and electrical outlets for a breast pump. According to the policy, if the space must be housed in a bathroom, it must be fully enclosed and separate.
Viral photo... The military’s breastfeeding policy allows lactating soldiers to participate in field training exercises but allows them to stop, if they need to, to express their milk. The policy also included the provision of on-staff lactation consultants to give breastfeeding active duty soldiers some extra help and support when needed.
