When a baby is hungry a baby has to eat, which means a mother has to feed her child – no matter where she is. Because of this, breastfeeding in public is officially legal in all 50 states.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While some fought against it in Utah and Idaho, in particular Utah, Republican Rep. Curt Webb who complained that not covering up while breastfeeding is inappropriate in the public. Others understood that while we have normalized the sexualization of breast, the organs themselves only serve the purpose of feeding a mother’s child.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After some backlash, the bill was passed after language was removed about whether a woman’s breast was uncovered to simply state that women are permitted to “breastfeed in any place of public accommodation,” according to USA Today.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With Idaho as the last state to pass the bill, the state finally came through passing the legislation with a vote of 66-0. It now protects breast feeding mothers from exposure and obscenity laws. The United States is now caught up with other countries like the U.K. and Australia, as well as many more.

    I never knew breastfeeding wasn’t public. This the most safe and healthy to feed your child. As a breastfeeding mom i learned how important it is. When My baby got sick breast milk was the only medicine that made him feel better. Now that he’s a toddler he’s healthy very smart. We didn’t deal with common colds or ear infections. I am definitely a fan on public breastfeeding.
