A note posted in a Target store is being praised by breast feeding moms.

It seems the court of public opinion is changing among breast-feeding moms when it comes to mega-store Target.

Back in 2011, moms were so incensed by one woman's negative breast-feeding experience inside a Target store that they staged a nationwide "nurse-in."

Now, a note posted to Facebook by Breastfeeding Mama Talk has nursing moms singing Target's praises.

The post has been shared almost 16,000 times since it was published on Tuesday.

It was unclear which Target location the photo was snapped in, but Target confirmed to ABC News the sign "accurately reflects our policy." Spokesman Joshua Thomas told ABC News, "At Target, we want all of our guests to feel comfortable shopping with us. Our breast-feeding policy, which applies to all stores, is just one of the ways in which we support our guests."

Kristy Kemp, owner of the Breastfeeding Mama Talk page, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
