UTAH PROTECTS BREASTFEEDING

The Utah Breastfeeding Coalition is working alongside Utah mothers and families to protect breastfeeding in public by supporting a new bill addressing the needs of breastfeeding kiddos — like yours! Want to support breastfeeding in Utah? Have a story to tell? Interested in meeting other fun & feisty nursing mamas working to normalize breastfeeding? The new Utah legislative session begins January 2015 but there is work going on now!

To get the latest scoop, join the Facebook group, Utah Protects Breastfeeding.

Here’s the group description:

We are individuals, mothers, and families working with the support of the Utah Breastfeeding Coalition to protect breastfeeding in Utah through new legislation.

For 20 years Utah has had language which only clarifies that breastfeeding in public is exempt from criminal indecency law and therefore mothers continue to be harassed.

Our goal is to create simple, clear language to protect breastfeeding in Utah and to increase public awareness that breastfeeding is normal.
