“There is a lot of conflict in our society about breast-feeding,” said Clare Lindstrom. “A lot of people think it should not be done in public because breasts are sexualized in our society.”

“It’s a cultural matter,” said Nicole Bernshaw, a lactation specialist with the La Leche League. “What we are trying to do is change the culture.”

Utah is among 44 states that have laws allowing women to breast-feed in public. But [Melissa] Knighton said she still hears stories about nursing mothers being asked to cover up or use the restroom. (Stephen Hunt, S.L. Tribune)
