Arkansas Mom’s Push for Breastfeeding Law
A push for a nationwide law which would protect nursing children in the middle of child custody cases is being made by one Northeast Arkansas mom.
It’s called “Landry’s Law” and Rachel Woolard-Weston is pushing for it to be signed into law, according to KAIT.
Woolard-Weston’s mission stems from her own child custody case. This week, a judge ruled that in three months her 7-month-old daughter Landry would have to go for overnight visits with her father.
Woolard-Weston is concerned the overnight stay her daughter wouldn’t eat because no matter how hard she’s tried, Landry won’t take anything but her mom.
There is an online petition that has more information. So far the petition has gotten over 3,400 signatures.
