My mom mentioned she heard something on the news today about new BFing legislation that just passed. I looked though the posts here but could find anything, I also did a quick google search and nothing?

Does anyone know anything about this? A link would be GREAT!

THANKS

UPDATED: Here is the link to the law, it will come into effect March 2009!::

This is wonderful news for RI moms!!!! It says that it will take into effect 3/1/09 - my assumption is that it has passed. I'm gonna ask around and will post any updates.

Thanks for the link!

Oh yes! And did you see the letter to the editor in the Providence Journal... I think it was last Sunday... basically saying "I see that breastfeeding in public is now legal. What's next, public fornication? Has the world gone bananas?" I had fun writing back to that one!

Somewhere along the way I come to understand that this was already the law--that a mother/baby pair had the right to nurse anywhere the general public had a right to be, for example libraries, restaurants, park benches, public buses, shops, etc. I've explained this in great detail and with great confidence for many years. Ooops.

What is the current law, I wonder. Does anyone know?

Happy mom to DS2000, DS2002, DD2004, DS2006 and DS 10/2009:

I was under the same impression. I have lived in a lot of states and this was true in each of them. So now that we're in RI I can't breastfeed in public until March '09? I'm so confused!
