Please read the article (and many, many comments) below, though I recommend securing any objects that you might be tempted to throw at your computer.  Some of the comments against this woman are just awful.

Or watch the clip on Fox8 News out of Cleveland:

It's sad that Ohio law so clearly protects our rights to NIP and yet there is still this kind of backlash and harassment going on.

Registration starts at 10 am. All babies must be latched on at 10:30 and stay latched for one minute to count. 

Come spend a day here in Norwalk. Bring the whole family. Visit our farmer's market that will be going on from 9 am until noon on the front lawn of St. Paul Episcopal Church right on Main St. After the Latch On, stop by one of our uptown eateries for lunch and browse our shops on Main St. Spend some time at our city poo to cool off. Finish up your day by going to the St. Paul Festival at St. Paul Catholic Church on Main St. Make it a fun filled day!

Even if you are not a breastfeeding mother, please come and show your support.
