Breastfeeding in Public

North Carolina law protects a mother’s right to breastfeed “in any public or private location where she is otherwise authorized to be”. To read more about laws protecting breastfeeding, visit our page on Breastfeeding Laws and Regulations.

NCBC supports your right to breastfeed in public. Let us know about your breastfeeding experiences, both positive and negative, by Contacting Us.

Additionally, Best For Babes, a national breastfeeding advocacy organization, has launched a nursing in public incident reporting hotline. Visit their website by clicking here to learn more.
