This just in: New York state governor Eliot Spitzer recently signed a law that requires workers to provide a private place and time for new mothers to pump for their babies or nurse them in the workplace. The law permits this to happen continuously for up to three years after the baby is born. What incredible, wonderful, excellent news!
Between this and the recent new change in breastfeeding-friendly initiatives in New York City hospitals, New York will soon become known as the United States’ lactational mecca.
Now all we have to do as a nation is get all the other 49 states to enact similar laws, and we’ll have the beginning of a breastfeeding-culture revolution.
