Breastfeeding law to go into effect Tuesday
Starting Tuesday, Colorado women will have an easier time breastfeeding in the workplace. A new law — one of 178 that were signed during the state’s most recent legislative session — goes into effect ensuring that women have ample time and private space to breastfeed their infants at work and that they won’t be penalized for doing so.
Colorado is the 16th state to enact such legislation. The law going into effect overlaps with Breastfeeding Week, a national celebration that takes place every year from Aug. 1-8 to educate families on the health benefits of breastfeeding their infants. This year’s theme is "Mother Support: Going for the Gold" to reflect the 2008 summer Olympics.
