Breastfeeding has come a long way!
We are thrilled to see this banner hanging in Carson City promoting the “Breastfeeding Welcomed Here” campaign – a partnership between the Nevada Department of Health and Nevada Breastfeeding Coalition.

It’s the latest must-have for breastfeeding moms – hands-free pumping bras. The Lactation Connection now carries the popular nursing and pumping bras from The Dairy Fairy.

Come take a look – The Lactation Connection is located inside Renown Regional Medical Center, across from Starbucks in The Shops at Renown; open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
