Who knows their breastfeeding laws? Im driving through Indiana and staying in Ohio for the next couple days and need to know if I can nurse openly in public or do I need to be covered? I know Illinois and Wisconsin Im allowed to nurse wherever however and can call the cops on anyone who asks me to cover up, leave or stop.

Hope someone knows, I can't find it plain and simple and Im mobile. Thanks in advance my boobies lover thanks you too.

Indiana Ind. Code § 16-35-6 allows a woman to breastfeed her child anywhere the law allows her to be. (HB 1510)


Ohio Ohio Rev. Code Ann. § 3781.55 (2005) provides that a mother is entitled to breastfeed her baby in any location of a place of public accommodation wherein the mother is otherwise permitted. (SB 41)


Your fine to nurse wherever, however in both states.
