I have pre mediation and the class is from 250 to 430 I am a breastfeeding mother and am unsure if I have rights to bring my baby I don't give her a bottle
I'd suggest you call the Mediation Office at your local courthouse and ask their policy. I'm sure they've dealt with your issue before.
Check in advance with your mediator. Normally, you are in the room with your ex and the mediator and the child may be a distraction.

While you can certainly check in advance, I suggest you just bring your child as that is probably best for you and your baby. And, while the baby might be a "distraction" I think your babies' presence might have a positive impact on those in the mediation. Good luck.
When you enter into mediation, you are not so much in the world of "rights" anymore. You are instead in the world of agreement, and doing what is best to advance the process. So the best thing to do is to discuss the issue with the mediator and with your ex if possible and try to agree on something that is best for you and best for making the mediation work.
