For anyone not knowing this. It's against the law for any person or business to interfere with or restrict a mother from breastfeeding her baby.

KRS 211.755

Breast-feeding permitted -- Municipal ordinances not to prohibit or restrict -- Interference prohibited.

(1) A mother may breast-feed her baby or express breast milk in any location, public or private, where the mother is otherwise authorized to be. Breast-feeding a child or expressing breast milk
as part of breast-feeding shall not be considered an act of public indecency and shall not be considered indecent exposure, sexual conduct, lewd touching, or obscenity.

(2) A municipality may not enact an ordinance that prohibits or restricts a mother breast-feeding a child or expressing breast milk in a public or private location where the mother and child are otherwise authorized to be. In a municipal ordinance, indecent exposure, sexual conduct, lewd touching, obscenity, and similar terms do not include the act of a mother breast-feeding a child in a public or private location where the mother and child are otherwise authorized to be.

(3) No person shall interfere with a mother breast-feeding her child in any location, public or private, where the mother is otherwise authorized to be.

Anytime I see a person yell at a nursing woman I will tell them this.
And take his name and address for a lawsuit for her.

I never said anything negative about a mother breast feeding her child. But in a crowded place like the chicken festival where your shoulder to shoulder with people or sitting next to people.
A gathering or a public event like the chicken fest isn't the ideal place to breast feed your baby. A women has the right and should breast feed her child but find a better place to handle the care of your child.
It's nasty for that child to be exposed to that many people while they are getting milk.
I for one find it offensive that a mother would breast feed a child at a place like the chicken festival. When you have and let's be honest nasty people that close to you or people sneezing or coughing on you and the child. It only exposes that child and you to
Germs and potential viruses.

The child deserves better and in fact why take a infant to a germ infested place intentionally? So you can have a good time? But hey spin this however you want to idc.
Your views and mine are different.

No one is yelling about this just a difference of opinion. Is that against the law? This modern society has gotten to be so ignorant its not even funny. People get so touchy when they meet someone with a difference of opinion.

If you believe a difference of opinion on this matter is war on women you are ignorant for thinking so.

Also, breastfeeding your child in public is no more unsanitary than bottle feeding or allowing them to anything at the CF.
*eat anything at the CF.
Not so depends on where you do it in public and what people your around.

Actually a breastfed child has a better chance of being immune to viruses than a bottle fed child. They get all of the antibodies from their mothers milk.

No more than if being bottle fed.

I don't find anything offensive concerning breastfeeding a baby. Babies have feeding schedules that need to be kept. The mother isn't always home when feeding time comes around. Drop the thing about germs. You wouldn't be saying any of this if the woman had been walking along feeding her child with a bottle. I think it's more about a thing you have about breasts.

Breasts have been around far longer than baby bottles.

So, since to you this is about germs and not inhibition about breasts, should children be banned from public gatherings and festivals? What about also keeping children from crowded places such as Wal-Mart? Busy restaurants? Age? A four year old can also catch a virus. Should children be kept out of the public in general? Be raised through their most vital formative years to be shut-ins fearing to be in large groups and totally lacking in learned social skills? Or is this really about archaic inhibitions concerning women's bodies and not about germs?

I already went back and reread this post. I see that you say you find it offensive that a mother would breast feed a child at a place like the chicken festival.

You specify 'breast feed'. Do you find it equally as offensive to see a parent bottle feed their child at the CF? Simple question, really. Why do you refuse to answer it?

A woman just cannot stay cooped up at home all the time, for to feed her baby on a breast. She has a right to have a good time also. She can take a light sheet with breathable space and cover up the feeding.

Did what I posted offend you? And I don't find it equally offensive for a mother to bottle feed a child. But to breast feed at a place like the chicken fest is offensive when ever you are literally shoulder to shoulder with people walking up and down the chicken fest.
My opinion and my right to state my own opinion.

I see, Wing. So, you discriminate against a breastfeeding woman. How pathetically closed minded you are. If the woman was sitting down, then how is she shoulder to shoulder? If she was carrying the child in a Moby wrap, then what is the issue? Or are you just a hillbilly republican that thinks we should all conform to what our government says is best? I bet I know the answer. Your opinion is based on prejudice and is not welcome here.
