Wisconsin Law

On Wednesday, March 10, 2010, Wisconsin Governor James Doyle signed the “Right to Breastfeed Act." This law states:

    • "A mother may breast-feed her child in any public or private location where the mother and child are otherwise authorized to be. In such a location, no person may prohibit a mother from breast-feeding her child, direct a mother to move to another location to breast-feed her child, direct a mother to cover her child or breast while breast-feeding, or otherwise restrict a mother from breast-feeding."

  • A person who interferes with that right is subject to a forfeiture not to exceed $200 under the general penalty provision under current law.
