It depends on what state/prison you are visiting. Since rules vary from state to state, please ask this in the state forum

I don't know about the rules, but I do know the conditions at the facility I visit would not lend themselves to nursing. I speak as someone who's nursed 3 babies, and I was NEVER reluctant to feed them anywhere- at the mall, in a pub, in the park, wherever. But for a prison visit I would recommend pumping.
I kinda doubt that the rules would allow nursing in the VR. it is a VERY conservative and anti-sexual atmosphere, the most so that I have ever experienced in my life. Even if the rules did allow it I am not sure I personally would want to do it. Sad but true. In that atmosphere it would be sure to attract SOME kind of unwelcome attention and commentary, either to your face or behind your back. Who needs it?
As for the bathroom, where I go it is one stall, nowhere else to sit, and generally not the cleanest place. Ugh.
They do have a modular "hospitality house" outside and I could imagine nursing out there. An older baby might get "tanked up" enough to hold out for a couple of hours if fed just before going in, or just maybe they would let you go out to nurse and then come back, you'd have to ask. But- and maybe I am completely wrong, and I do know it's possible to nurse without showing anything untoward- I would NOT want to breast feed right in the VR.
Just my .02. Enjoy that baby!
