On a regular basis, stories pop up in the news, on blogs and on message boards, about the latest mother asked to cover up or move to the bathroom or simply cease and desist breastfeeding her baby in a public area. Yeah, I know, it staggers the imagination that in 2009 this still happens, but it does. Anyway, the most recent incident that I know of was at an IKEA store in Brooklyn. I'd call for a massive nurse-in, since I could use some new shelving and maybe some glassware, it really does appear that this is not at all the policy of the company, just an isolated ignoramus of an employee.
But if you do find yourself faced with some busybody who's not familiar with your legal right to nurse anywhere you need, it would be handy to have one of these snazzy cards printed out. It breaks down the law state-by-state (and the overwhelming majority of states explicitly support your right to nurse ANYWHERE you have a right to be, period). So carry this in your wallet and flash it at any naysayers!
Pardon the crappy cameraphone shot, I just thought a visual would be nice.
