New Delhi: Cabins for breastfeeding were opened at the National Zoological Park in Delhi on Sunday on the occasion of Mother's Day.

The move was part of the popular parks efforts to help the visitors enjoy their outing, zoo director Renu Singh said.

It will allow lactating mothers feed their children without any hindrance.

"I once spotted a woman sitting outside the zoo under the scorching sun to feed her baby. She was visibly upset with the gaze of passersby," Singh said.

The zoo authorities earlier set up pram services for those visiting the zoo with infants and toddlers. Around 10 prams are available at the main gate of the zoo and the visitors can use them free of cost.
