Breastfeeding at: Young Israel of Toco Hills, Atlanta, GA

Young Israel of Toco Hills in Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Breastfeeding in the Sanctuary:

This may or may not be permitted, it has never been discussed.  The popular expectation is that mothers will use the nursing room, rather than breastfeeding in the sanctuary.

Private Nursing Locations:

There is a nursing room with a label.  It is a separate room inside the women’s bathroom.  Most women in the shul will be able to help you find it.

Other Information:

There is no public information abut breastfeeding policy.

General Child Friendliness:

There are changing tables in both the women’s bathrooms and the men’s bathrooms.   There is stroller parking outside, under a tent.  There is not space for children’s stuff.

Children are welcome in the main service.

Wrap-Up:
