Are there any laws in Colorado that support breastfeeding mothers?
There are two laws in Colorado that support breastfeeding. The Colorado Revised Statutes 25-6-302 established that a mother may breastfeed in any place she has a right to be. The Workplace Accommodations for Nursing Mothers Act requires an employer to: 1) provide reasonable unpaid break time, or allow an employee to use paid break and/or meal time, to express breast milk for her nursing child up to 2 years after the child's birth, or 2) Make reasonable efforts to provide a nursing mother with a private location in close working proximity to the work area in which to express milk.
