I lived in North Dakota for a while. It is actually illegal to breastfeed in public there! I moved to Minnesota, where it is legal, and I love it. I don't have to worry about going to jail for feeding my child. Now, all I have to worry about is the nasty stares that I get while feeding her. It's not like I'm showing myself to everyone. I was listening to the radio one day on my way home from ND. There was a story about a woman who was feeding her child at an undisclosed restaurant, totally covered. Her family was kicked out of the restaurant. The dad, obviously, became angered. I am honestly outraged by this. I was wondering what other moms thought, since this is a breastfeeding community. My SIL thinks it should be illegal in all states. She said they should go to the bathroom in public places to feed their babies. I understand not wanting to see some strangers breast, but come on!
