IMAGES: Saturday’s “Big Latch On” in Times Square For World Breastfeeding Week

Here’s something you may have missed on Saturday. More than 100 moms headed to Times Square to celebrate the beauty and importance of breastfeeding. The “Big Latch On” was organised to help launch “World Breastfeeding Week”

A women has the legal right to breastfeed in public and private places in New York.  “World Breastfeeding Week” helps remind us all that a mother should never be shamed or bullied into stopping breastfeeding or nursing in a bathroom.

The New York Civil Liberties Union states that women can breastfeed in “stores, day care centers, doctors’ offices, restaurants, parks, movie theaters and many other places. No one can tell you to leave any of these places because you are breastfeeding, and no one can tell you to breastfeed in a bathroom, a basement or a private room.”
