Add WA to the list of states who support breastfeeding! Washington state has just passed a law protecting the rights of breastfeeding mothers to feed their children in any place which is open to the public. Previously, moms could not be charged with indecent exposure, but they could be asked to leave a store, park, etc if someone asked them to. Now the law states that mothers cannot be asked to leave. I’m always excited to hear laws like these being passed, but at the same time, disappointed that in 2009 were still fighting these battles. Breasts are for feeding babies and I cannot believe we still need legislature to enforce our right to feed our children. At least legislation is starting to protect mother’s right to do the very things breasts were designer for: feeding babies.
