Breastfeeding rights in public

If you’re allowed to be there, you’re allowed to breastfeed there.

In all 50 states, breastfeeding in public is protected by law.


Breastfeeding rights at work

Legislation for the workplace varies from state to state.

The federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires all employers to give hourly breastfeeding employees time and a private space—not a bathroom!—to pump.
