Hadlock Field now has a private area for nursing moms

Hadlock Field, home of the Portland Sea Dogs in Portland, Maine, just made history. They are the very first professional sports venue in the state to have a private area just for nursing mothers.

This is an incredibly accommodating move that really should be the norm and not the exception in family public places.

It should be noted, however, that it is not illegal for a mother to breastfeed her baby in public. Whether it’s at the mall, at the restaurant or at a Sea Dogs game. This addition is simply for those who wish to feed their baby privately and not have to use the toilet.

Think about it, would you like to eat your hot dogs from the park and your beer in the bathroom? I do not think so.

The right is as follows;

§4634. Right to breastfeed
Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, a person may breastfeed their baby in any place, public or private, where they are otherwise permitted to be.

Thank you Portland Sea Dogs for this amazing addition to the Tuff Shed nursing shed. And no worries, the shed will adapt to changing Maine weather with a heater and air conditioner.

The next time you go to a game with your little one, ask an usher to tell you about the new breastfeeding space. Be sure to tell your friends and family about it so they have one less thing to worry about when they venture outside for summer fun with the little ones!
