Breastfeeding in Public is Legal in All 50 States

In July, Idaho, and Utah finally passed a law allowing women to breastfeed their infants in public. Now mothers in all 50 states can freely nurse their babies without facing any charges.

The news comes shortly after two moms in Minnesota were asked to leave a public pool because they were breastfeeding. A similar incident happened in Oregon who was told to cover up during a doctor visit.

If a business or a public place forces a woman to leave because she is breastfeeding she can file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and contact the United States Breastfeeding Coalition.
