Ohio Breastfeeding Laws


In 2005 the state of Ohio enacted Rev. Code Ann. § 3781.55 allowing nursing mothers the right to breastfeed their children at any public location where they are otherwise permitted to be. Ohio has yet to pass any laws at the statewide level specifically for nursing mothers in the workplace.
