Breastfeeding Rights


I love this and wish I knew who had written it. Please get in touch if it was you.



1 You have the right to remain breastfeeding.
2 Any breastmilk you pump may be used if put it in the refrigerator.
3 If you are under the age of 18, any time you breastfeed as a juvenile, your juvenile offspring can mature you and make you an adult, so that soon you will be breastfeeding as an adult.
4 You have the right to talk to a La Leche League Leader or lactation consultant before giving up breastfeeding, for answering any questions.
5 You have the right to breastfeed your baby immediately after birth, during your La Leche League meetings and while meeting your lactation consultant during the questioning.

6 If you cannot afford a lactation consultant, one will be appointed for you without cost, before or during breastfeeding, if you desire.

This should have been a photo opportunity whilst presenting a petition with The Way Nature Intended, to ask for the right of babies to feed where ever they may be, however they feed.
