Where to Breastfeed

Apart from the ever-popular IKEA, the Oranzhevaya Korova (Orange Cow) cafe is famous for its family atmosphere. Women breastfeeding their babies are not a rare sight there.

In general, breastfeeding in public is not forbidden, but it can raise a few stares and surprised looks. Local culture views the practice of breastfeeding as a private affair and to do this in public should be more of a response to an emergency situation rather than a regular occurrence.

Special rooms for mothers to breastfeed and change diapers are available at all of Moscow's major airports and long-distance train stations, although some require a health certificate for entrance.
