BOISE, Idaho - Idaho is one of just six states that has yet to put laws on the books to protect a mother's right to breastfeed in private or public locations, or protect her from prosecution under indecency laws. Neither item is on the agenda for the Legislature yet this year, even though U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Regina Benjamin said recently that she believes women face too many obstacles and not enough support when it comes to breastfeeding.

NOW it is only TWO (instead of six) and WV is the other....



If you want it to change there is a petition here to protect nursing in Idaho:

Idaho is one of only two states that does not provide protection for a woman's right to breastfeed her child anywhere she is able to be. Breastfeeding woman are often discriminated against and harassed for trying to do the best thing for their children. We need to protect the rights of our mothers and babies and help support a strong breastfeeding relationship.

You don't realize that currently it is not protected from indecency laws there or in West Virginia. I think the odds someone would push it that far are slim, but legally they could.

It is still not illegal to breastfeed in public.

Haha! I'm going to move to New Hampshire and going to whip my b**b out on the beach for the babes just cuz I CAN! It's sad I have to train my baby that I can't feed him if we're out at the store. Thankfully now I can just give him a snack like apple sauce.

You're obviously oblivious. Indecent exposure, which is what breastfeeding in public is considered here IS ILLEGAL.

Exactly. It's not going to be pushed unless someone's offended. But it is still illegal due to public nudity/indecency laws. Shoot if I am gonna get arrested for that, I at least wanna be skinny dipping lmao

Splitting hairs. It is illegal to have any nip show - so if you happen to give someone even a quick flash you have technically broken the indecency laws there.

Do it! I like BFing in public, but hate it at the same time. I like doing it because it helps normalize it for people who weren't exposed to it at home. But I'm always worried some fuckface it going to throw a huge fit about it and try to get me kicked out. Or even just say something rude, I'm sensitive and would probably cry.

I was responding to "Considering it's illegal where I live and my state is actually spending my tax dollars to fight national laws protecting nursing mothers because they consider it a sex crime. Worse." Obviously she is wrong. It is NOT illegal and it isn't considered a sex crime :roll:

What are you not getting? You CAN be arrested for breastfeeding because it CAN be considered public indecency/nudity. IF you are arrested and charged with public indecency/nudity and charged, it can be considered a sex crime.



She is right. You are wrong. Let it go.

Aw that clip was great. :) I WISH they would air it now, it's appropriate for children and explains it well and sensitively. I think if that was aired now though, parents would have a riot. :roll: Based on the fact that this aired, I would say worse, but slowly working towards better now.



Talking about this stuff makes me kind of sad and jealous. I never got to breastfeed the way I desperately wanted to wish DS and DD2. No matter how I tried, it always ended in frustration and tears. :(
