The latch and the law: Know your boobies’ rights!

Happy 2013 everyone. Much love from our little Gerritsen family to you.

Looking for some light new years’ reading? How about a compilation of US breastfeeding laws? Some of them are wonderfully worded including this one from Georgia:

Ga. Code § 31-1-9 (1999) states that the breastfeeding of a baby is an important and basic act of nurture which should be encouraged in the interests of maternal and child health and allows a mother to breastfeed her baby in any location where the mother and baby are otherwise authorized to be. (1999 SB 29, Act 304; 2002 SB 221)

P.s. I’ll look for some international laws and add them in the coming weeks.
