Why are Changes Needed?

At the federal level, Public Law 108-199, Section 629 states: “Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a woman may breastfeed her child at any location in a Federal building or on Federal property, if the woman and her child are otherwise authorized to be present at the location.” In addition, all 50 states (as of 2018) have laws that specifically permit breastfeeding in any public or private location. However, legal protection does not always translate to access and accommodations free from scrutiny and criticism. As research indicates, a large percentage of women do not initiate breastfeeding based on public attitudes toward breastfeeding, including fear and embarrassment of breastfeeding in public. The anxiety surrounding breastfeeding in public highlights the need for continued societal support amidst ongoing normalization efforts.
