“The number of interruptions during breastfeeding sessions was significantly decreased with the use of a breastfeeding privacy sign, and the mothers who used the sign strongly agreed that their breastfeeding sessions were successful” was the conclusion of a study reported in JOGNN during Fall 2011. The authors gave permission for the Pennsylvania Department of Health to create a door hanger with our logo on it and to make the door hanger available to you. Albert J, Heinrichs-Breen J: An evaluation of a breastfeeding privacy sign to prevent interruptions and promote successful breastfeeding. JOGNN 40(3):274-280, 2011.

Print out the door hangers on thick paper stock. Carefully cut out the outline of the door handle hole and center line with scissors and you are ready to display. You could also add a magnetic stripe to the back of the door hanger; laminate for protection and durability.
