Do you have to cover up while breastfeeding in public?
If you’re breastfeeding in a public location, and the owner asks you to cover up, you have the right to refuse. However, if you ignore the owner’s request for you to leave the property, you risk being accused of trespassing—a charge that could result in a ticket, fine, or, if it’s not your first offense, jail time.

With practice, you can breastfeed your baby in most slings or wraps and the fabric of the baby carrier will cover the baby and your breast. You can even walk around while breastfeeding!
If no pillow is available, crossing your leg on the side you are nursing will bring your baby closer to your breast. A lap pillow is essential for women who deliver by C-section to keep the baby’s weight from pressing against their incision.
