Every now and then, a news report or story related to breast feeding in public pops up in my news feeds. Often, it’s about a mother who was asked to stop breast feeding while doing so in a restaurant or store.
Sometimes, these stories are reporting on the result of a mother being asked to stop breastfeeding: the civil protest by a bunch of breastfeeding mothers, otherwise known as a “nurse-in.”
Either way, it usually comes with a very heated debate about whether or not nursing/breastfeeding in public is OK (or if it is OK only if done in a particular way).
