​Northamptonshire LibraryPlus welcomes you to breastfeed in any of our libraries.

We understand that breastfeeding gives your child the best start in life and so we offer comfortable spaces alongside books and toys to keep siblings entertained whilst you breastfeed. If you would like a glass of water, or there is anything else we can reasonably do to make you more comfortable whilst you breastfeed, please ask a member of staff. We can also offer support and advice through breastfeeding support groups, health visitors and our qualified early year’s workers. You can find about more about this on our events calendar or by asking a member of staff.

It is a mother’s right to breastfeed in public and should you be challenged by other customers our staff will be happy to talk to them on your behalf.
