Madison Breastfeeding Legislation

I posted a couple weeks ago about Dane County legislation to protect mothers that are breastfeeding in public. Here is another piece of the story:

On Tuesday, 1/16/07, the Madison Common Council passed legislation to protect mothers that are breastfeeding in public. The ordinance says:

“No person shall interfere with a mother breastfeeding her child or expressing breast milk within any public accommodation where the mother would otherwise be authorized to be.”

There may also eventually be laws at the state and national level. Now if we can just make it the culture as well as the law! Smile at the next mother you see breastfeeding in public…
