[RANT WARNING] A breastfeeding mother here in Las Vegas was recently treated horribly for breastfeeding her child in a restaurant. There will be a #nursein
on November 3rd in support of this mother and also to educate this business that they cannot treat a nursing mother in a shameful and disrespectful manner. I will post more details about the #nursein
in the near future.
Know your breastfeeding rights! For my #nevadamoms
- the code is §NRS 201.232. For my #calimoms
- the code CCC §43.3. For my #arizonamoms
- the code is A.R.S. § 41-1443
In general these laws state that "a mother may breastfeed her child in any public or private location where the mother is otherwise authorized to be, irrespective of whether the nipple other the mother's breast is uncovered during or incidental to breastfeeding." [quoting NV Law]
I've included the laws for communities I often work in, however, if you're in another state and would like more information about your State's particular law please leave a comment below or DM me.
