In practical terms, anyone who tells a nursing mom to leave a government building, department store, airport, train or metro station will be fined 30,000 Taiwan dollars (about $990).
"We urge the public to show more respect for nursing mothers, to support and create a friendly environment for breastfeeding," the statement said.
Thank you, Taiwan, for trailblazing the path to nursing-acceptance. We just hope other countries follows suit. What about you -- would you support a law like that here?
And if you haven’t already, read another happy post about nursing in public.
