Don't mess with this breastfeeding Mama

Breast-feeding dispute settled
Columbus Dispatch - Columbus,OH,USA
An Ohio law that took effect in 2005 says that a woman is entitled to breast-feed her baby in any location of any public accommodation where she also is ...

Yep - that's a story about me on the front page of the Metro section in today's Dispatch.  It's an article about the settlement that was reached with Lifestyle Family Fitness.

If anyone is a member there, I would love to have a photo of the International Breastfeeding Symbol posted above the Kid's Club.  They should start showing up in the next month or so.

The link should work now.  Not sure what the problem was yesterday.

Sadly, the Dispatch's site is borked right now. I'm curious to see it--I remember your initial post about the incident.

Dunno what's up with that. The link should work now.

Yep, it works now. Wow, you pwned them.

Haha - sure did.

The funny thing is, I never wanted anything out of them, other than for them to create a company-wide, breastfeeding-affirmative policy and communicate the policy to their employees.

They told me they would do it, but when the OCRC followed up with them, they refused to sign anything that would hold them to their promise. I'm glad I didn't just take their word for it.
