Breastfeeding at: Congregation Beth Shalom, Naperville, IL

Congregation Beth Shalom in Naperville, Illinois, USA

Breastfeeding in the Sanctuary:

It is permitted, and goes without comment.  Nursing without a cover is very comfortable.

Private Nursing Locations:

This is a very small synagogue, so it seems that there is not any special place for moms to breastfeed.  However, they could go to a room not being utilized at any given time and nurse in private there, and be welcome to do so.

Other Information:

No information about breastfeeding policy is publicized.

General Child Friendliness:

There are changing tables in the women’s bathroom.  There is not stroller parking, or space for children’s supplies.  However, children are very welcome in the main service.


This congregation received a rating of “Great, could barely be better- 1” out of 7, where 1 is the best rating, and 7 is the worst.
