Yesterday was Breastfeeding Law Awareness Day. Baton Rouge Mayor Kip Holden recognizes the tribute to nursing moms on August 10th every year.

Parents gathered this morning in the gardens outside the Louisiana State Capitol to promote breastfeeding in public.

They hope to inspire Idaho, which is the only state without laws to protect nursing mothers. The organizer of this event wants Idaho to allow mothers to breastfeed their children anywhere they are able to be in public.
