India | Taj Mahal to become country's first historic monument to offer breast-feeding room

The Taj Mahal, built as a monument to a woman who died in childbirth, is set to get a baby feeding room in a first for India where conservative attitudes toward public breastfeeding mean nursing mothers are often shamed and told to cover up.

Vasant Kumar Swarnkar, a top official at the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) in Agra city – home to the Taj Mahal – said the baby feeding room would be set up by July to help the “millions of mothers who visit with their babies”.
