⚠️ MUST READ. . . REPOST Fyi This is DOPE!! Thanks for sharing @goldilacts . 👇 💰FINE💰FOR THOSE WHO MAKE MAMA COVER UP 🚨👩🏼‍✈️ Well, maybe not YET, but soon! An enforced monetary fine may be given to those who force a mother to cover up while breastfeeding in public. Current law states that a mama can breastfeed in any location, public or private, however she sees fit 💪🏽🏆😍 Kentucky is ready to take it a step FURTHER and create a consequence for business owners who do not comply. A bill to enforce financial penalties for this has been pre-filed in the Kentucky senate!! 🙌🏼The bill proposes a $500 fine for first-time offenders, $1,000 fine for each offense after that 💸 In the blogs, a mama proposed that the money collected from this fine should go to the mama who was judged. Haaaay we are HERE 👏🏼 FOR 👏🏼 THAT 👏🏼👯‍♀️🤣 This bill was sparked after a mama, who is now suing the Texas Roadhouse restaurant, because an employee there demanded she cover up baby while breastfeeding...and put a napkin on the babies face!! 😱 We want to stress the mama in this picture is NOT the mama who is currently involved in the incident discussed above. This beautiful photo of a mama and her sweet babes are part of an amazing series called “Breastfeeding in Real Life” by Sarah Boccolucci. Her beautiful photos were featured in the Huffington Post 💛 #thelactatingmama #breastfeeding #breastmilk #breastfeedinglaws
Everyone should know their state's breastfeeding law. This is important this week as many are traveling. Do a quick Google search for the state you're in just to be in the know. Thankfully, all US states now have laws protecting breastfeeding. However, every state has unique wording. Check so that you are aware of the details for the state you're in. I keep cards on me at all times and have been known to pass them out as needed.

**CALIFORNIA** Good morning from the Golden State! California has been extremely progressive with their breastfeeding laws and initiatives to protect mothers in public and working moms. All 50 states protect mothers breastfeeding in public and private - specifically places the mother and child are authorized to be. Did you know in California you are exempt from jury duty for up to one year?! An extension can be submitted to exceed the one year mark. California Working moms - be familiar with state and federal laws and what they require from your employer. The Fair Labor Standards Act provides protections for breastfeeding working mothers, and the California Labor Code provides even more protections. Before you return to work, check out for a great breakdown and more specifics on these protections. Know your rights and just keep feeding!

#blackbreastfeedingweek Let's talk about breastfeeding in public! __ Recently, a law was passed that made breastfeeding while in public, in all 50 states legal. The law allows women “to breastfeed in any place of public accommodation," and prevents us from being charged with indecent exposure and obscenity when trying to feed our child. The U.S is now up to speed with the U.K., Australia and other countries across the world that protect nursing mothers. Great news! 🙌❤💪👏💃 __ However, we kbow that there are still some politicians and people who oppose this law and can't get pass women "whipping it out in my face". __ If I'm honest, I can understand how this makes some people feel uncomfortable, BUT it boils down to having the right to feed our babies when they're hungry and, in my opinion, #normalizingBreastfeeding just like we've normalize other forms of nudity! I mean, think about it. 🤷🏽‍ Breastfeeding saves lives. Our babies need to eat. _ But anywho, mom to be, have you thought about how you will go about feeding your child when in public and what you feel comfortable with? Will you intentionally cover or go rouge?Let's talk about it! 🗣️ __ Current mommas, do you do it? Do you feel comfortable doing it? When you did breastfeed, did you do it publically or not? What was your experience like? __ #bbcw18 #liquidgold #ftm #firsttimemoms #teenmoms #singlemoms #breastfeeding #nursingmothers #breastfeedinglaws #motherchildbond #motherhoodnofilter #love
Repost: @WHO | Breast milk provides the perfect source of early nutrition for babies. Support #breastfeeding mums anytime, anywhere. We can all help. ・・・ Did you know that it's NOW legal to breastfeed in public in all 50 states of America!? It's about time the US caught up with the rest of the world! . Unfortunately, there is still work to be done as women are still being shamed for in public (despite having the LAW on their side). . By the way, if you are a mother and are uncomfortable in public, there is nothing wrong with that and no one is forcing you to do so! Speaking for myself, it took me a while to build up the courage to nurse my son in public settings - even around some of my own family members! Just know that you have the right to feed your baby wherever and whenever your baby is hungry, no matter what others may say. . Have you ever been criticized for in public? How did you handle it? . #nourishedmothers #lactation #latching #breastfeeding #breastfeed #breastfedbabies #breastfeedinginpublic #supportbreastfeeding #breastfeedinglaws #breastfeedingawarenessmonth

Drivers do you know your state's breastfeeding laws? All of our states now have laws protecting public breastfeeding. But how does it effect you? As we know children under a certain age must ride in the appropriate carseat. At no time can a baby be taken out of the carseat and breastfed in a moving car. The car can pull over, stop, and engine turned off and then the child can be removed from the carseat for the mother to feed. While this isn't a common occurance for drivers, being prepared is always good. Remember that line and pool rides don't leave room in their policies for these accommodations. But good customer services will allow it if all of your riders are fine with allowing the ride to pause for a brief feeding. And it is inappropriate to ask why or to pump and put milk in a bottle. Please do not so this! August is National Breastfeeding Month. Expect more mother and baby rides. We know they are safe in your ride! @lydiaoboydcle ・・・ Everyone should know their state's breastfeeding law. I keep cards on me at all times and have been known to pass them out as needed.
