Congratulations, Massachusetts Moms!

It's official: Governor Patrick of Massachusetts signed into law "An Act to Promote Breastfeeding." The law, which states that a woman may breastfeed her child in public without violating any indecency laws, goes into effect in early April 2009.

Angela at Breastfeeding 1-2-3 has a great post with the exact text of the law, explaining the new rights of Massachusetts breastfeeding mothers. The law is not perfect, but it's a much needed step in the right direction and will hopefully eliminate the harrassment that breastfeeding moms in the state reported being victim to.
