"It is now illegal for Seattle businesses to ask nursing mothers to stop, cover up or leave the premises,"

That is pretty neat!

Out of ~8-9 years of nursing, I was only confronted negitively once. I thought it was pretty needless, since I was covered. It was in a kid focused attraction in the restaurant (although school cafeteria food was better). We will likely not go back to that establishment again, even though I am no longer nursing.

The amount of breast you see when a baby unlatches is no worse then the amount of breast you might see when a female in a low neck outfit bends over.
