The goal is again praised for the way the stores treat mothers who are breastfeeding.

On June 14, the Facebook group Breastfeeding Mama Talk shared a photo at a Target store in Weatherford, Texas.

The photo shows a sign of the store's breastfeeding policy, which encourages mothers to care wherever they want – but also offers a comfortable and private nursing room equipped with free goodies for mothers who want to benefit from it.

& # 39; At Target, you can care for nurses wherever and whenever you want while you shop because we think #momsrock, & # 39; wrote the company in the announcement, which was hung in the store.

& # 39; But if you want a comfortable (or more private) place to care for or change a diaper, ask our Fitting Room Attendant about our nursing room! & # 39;

The nursing room is described as a & # 39; quiet place to take a break during our Target run & # 39; and add that it is even filled with some free goodies to make you and the baby time there even more fun & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Happy nursing and happy shopping! & # 39; the noticed decision.

& # 39; I had a lady who once bothered me in the food court at Target. She went to a manager. And the manager called her to leave and gave me a free drink. I was a new mother with a tongue-bound baby. That simple gesture made my year, & wrote one.

& # 39; A manager gave me a free water and pretzel when I was breastfeeding a few years ago because she remembered how hungry BFing made her & & # 39 ;, another wrote.

A woman who visited a nursing room for a different purpose said it was & # 39; super comfortable & # 39; while another said she had nursed in the furniture department while the staff made her feel comfortable.

& # 39; When I was breastfeeding, I used the dressing rooms of Target. I received a pillow, water and snacks. They even kept my older child busy so that I could take care of peace! & # 39; another mother wrote.

This is not the first time that Target's nursing policy has gone viral. Two years ago, the same Facebook group, Breastfeeding Mama Talk, shared a snapshot in a store in Braunfels, Texas.

The store had a & # 39; nursing corner & # 39; furnished with two chairs, pillows, blankets and a table with decorations for mothers to care for.

The image also earned Target quite some praise.

And in 2015, another post from the same account showed a memo outlining the nursing policy.

& # 39; Guests can openly breastfeed in our stores or ask where they can go to breastfeed their child. When this happens, remember these points, & # 39; it read.

& # 39; Target's policy supports breastfeeding in every part of our stores, including our fitting rooms, even when others are waiting.

& # 39; If you see a woman breastfeeding in our stores, don't approach her.

& # 39; If she approaches you and asks for a place to breastfeed, offer the fitting room (do not offer the toilet as an option). & # 39;
