Breastfeeding Laws in The United States

This has been a busy doula-ing season for me, with tons of families giving birth to their beautiful little ones. It's such a joy!

I've noticed that the most common questions I get in the moments after the birth of a child surrounds breastfeeding: How do I get the proper latch on? And then in the postnatal meeting, how will I breastfeed in public or pump at the office when I eventually have to leave the house?  

Well, I stumbled upon a wonderful website by Jake Marcus that provides the most comprehensive list of breastfeeding laws - both federal and state laws - in the United States. Because most of my current clients are living in NYC, here is the direct link to that, but everyone around the US, please check these to know your breastfeeding rights!
