Breastfeeding Room Description By the Promenade on the second floor of Santa Anita Mall is a lovely and large nursing mothers lounge that can be used by multiple nursing moms at the same time.
There are other designated areas of the mall to express breastmilk quietly though can get crowded quickly, but this family lounge area is very clean, beautiful, and has amenities including paded couches, a microwave, sink, counter table, and more.

"They let us know that on weekends, since the family room is near the food court, it can get very crowded. There’s another family room on the second level, by the promenade, near CPK that offers changing tables, a sitting area and one room to feed the baby (although it was missing a curtain). It did seem cleaner and had sliding glass doors, which created a better sense of privacy than the downstairs family room."
Section 7 of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (29 U.S.C. 207) is amended by adding at the end the following:
1:(r)An employer shall provide—
(A) a reasonable break time for an employee to express breast milk for her nursing child for 1 year after the child’s birth each time such employee has need to express the milk; and
(B) a place, other than a bathroom, that is shielded from view and free from intrusion from coworkers and the public, which may be used by an employee to express breast milk.
2: An employer shall not be required to compensate an employee receiving reasonable break time under paragraph (1) for any work time spent for such purpose.
3: An employer that employs less than 50 employees shall not be subject to the requirements of this subsection, if such requirements would impose an undue hardship by causing the employer significant difficulty or expense when considered in relation to the size, financial resources, nature, or structure of the employer’s business.
