Understanding how laws affect pretty much any part of our lives can be complicated. When it comes to breastfeeding, mothers mostly don’t need to worry about how laws might affect them. Once in a while, though, it becomes important — maybe because of a call to jury duty, a problem with nursing in public, or a custody dispute. This article on LLLI’s website is an overview of breastfeeding and the law in the United States. If you enjoy podcasts, you can check out Motherwear’s interview with Jake Marcus. Jake is an attorney, nursing mother, and breastfeeding advocate. Also, on Motherwear’s page you can click on a map of the U.S. that shows what kind of laws each state has about nursing in public.
