Breastfeeding in Public

Did you know you are protected under Colorado State Law to Breastfeed in Public?

According to American Academy of Pediatrics, breastfeeding is the best source of nutrition for an infant. By breastfeeding, you can decrease their risk of diarrhea, ear infections, and chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes and obesity.
You can breastfeed anywhere you have the right to be: this means anywhere but a men’s restroom and while trespassing.
You do not have to be covered in order to breastfeed in public.
