SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- There will be a new cafe at the Salt Lake City library next month catering to mothers and infants and aimed at breaking free of a taboo.

The Utah Breastfeeding Coalition will open their second annual breastfeeding cafe inside the library.

For the month of August one of the shops on the main floor of the library will open as an information center on the benefits of breastfeeding and a place where mothers can breastfeed their babies.

Coalition spokeswoman Kathy Pope says the cafe is aimed at helping the public understand that breastfeeding is normal and natural and breastfeeding mothers shouldn't be shunned.
