Breastfeeding is very natural for every mother and a child and very essential for a baby’s growth during the first six months of his or her life but is still a taboo in Indian society.
In a progressive step, Taj Mahal becomes the first Indian heritage monument to have a separate breastfeeding room.
To save the new mothers from unwanted attention and weird staring Archeological Survey Of India has taken a developing approach.
According to Reuters, the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) said that the room will be set up by July to help the ‘millions of mothers who visit with their babies’.
Two other heritage sites, Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri, will follow suit in providing separate breastfeeding rooms for visiting mothers. This is the first time ASI is providing such a facility at any of India’s 3,600 plus monuments.
