Beth Greenfield a writer for the Yahoo shine talks about how a woman was told to leave a Connecticut courtroom because she was breastfeeding her baby. The law gives women the right to feed their baby in a public place. And Danielle Gendron was given an apology to when she was shooed out of the courtroom and reprimanded that right. Gendron tells reporters that she is a new mother and she has to feed her baby when he is hungry. She tells reporters that because of situations like this women don’t want to breastfeed their children and babies aren’t getting the benefits that they need.
I didn’t know that there was a specific law that gave women the right to breastfeed wherever. I think its good that Gendron spoke up because people need to know that even though breastfeeding might make people feel uncomfortable, it is their right to feed their baby in public.
