If you feel that you've been discriminated against for NIP, who do you call to start the complaint process if you want to take legal steps? The ACLU? The LLL?

I'm not talking about complaining to the store manager or company, but rather who to talk to about your rights being violated...I hope I'm making myself clear as to what I'm talking about as I'm rather sleep deprived at the moment...any help with this question would be greatly appreciated. TIA!

First you have to find out what your state law is and does and whether you have any legal remedy available to you. You can start here: http://mothering.com/breastfeeding/lactation-and-law and the state law map that goes with it.

Hi Triana,
A mom was recently told she could not nurse her 3-month-old baby near the child care area of a YMCA near Boston. The story was posted to this forum earlier this week. Afterward, Isis Parenting, a Boston advocacy group, posted a video with tips on how to handle a situation in which you feel you were treated wrongly for nursing your child in public:

Elizabeth Gomez, the nursing mom who with help from her mothering community brought her situation to light, effected positive change as a result of what happened to her. Here's the story that ran in the Boston Globe:

Good luck!
