Breastfeeding Friendly Business Decals

Oklahoma legislation ensures that women have the right to breastfeed in public.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health encourages public establishments in Oklahoma to display this decal in a visible location, to indicate that nursing mothers and babies are welcome.

Displaying the decal will help breastfeeding women and their families to recognize places that welcome them.
