Why?

Why are there no laws to protect breast feeding moms and their babies. Feeding in a bathroom is so unsanitary thats the equivalent to us eating a steak dinner in the city dump.

    Most states do have a law that women are allowed to breastfeed anywhere they are allowed to be. That said, many breastfeeding mothers aren't aware of this law, or aren't comfortable enough to stand up for themselves.

          I think some local La Leche League leaders will have little business cards they hand out to moms with the state's laws on them. It is funny to see people's reaction when you know you are not in the wrong. I'm super modest and don't like bfing in public, but if I have to, I have to. I'll find a corner. When my son was a baby I would go walk around the mall a lot. The security guards got to know us and if somebody bugged me they would sit beside me until babe was done-that's how I learned the laws for South Dakota. Baby can be fed wherever. As long as nipple doesn't show continuously, nobody can a thing. Once I learned that, I gained a lot of confidence though I still get snarky comments and looks.

          The almighty nipple is why i dont breastfeed in public anymore. my baby has trouble keeping a latch even at almost 5m old. Its amazing the looks i get even though i wear a poncho when breastfeeding. Still i must lift the poncho to relatch

          I know that well.. I bought one of the covers that lets me see baby so if they let go without being done we can relatch without exposing.

            I believe it was an 'udder cover'. If they are too expensive sign up for the newsletters.. I got mine for shipping price only because of specials they run. :)
