The airline website states that Delta supports breastfeeding on Delta aircraft, Delta connections and Delta facilities. 

The airline is unlikely to support lactation in human infants.

Small dogs and cats, as well as household birds, are allowed to travel with the airline for a nominal fee. However, they must be carried in a suitable pet carrier under the seat.
