From the Kansas State Statutes: (and for all those people who don't understand or want to help out breastfeeding mothers)

Breastfeeding; where. (a) Breast milk is widely acknowledged to be the most complete form of nutrition for infants, with a range of benefits for infant's health, growth, immunity and development and has also been shown to improve maternal health and bonding in addition to contributing to society at large through economic and environmental gains, it is therefore the public policy of Kansas that a mother's choice to breastfeed should be supported and encouraged to the greatest extent possible.
(b) A mother may breastfeed in any place she has a right to be.

What exactly do you mean when when you say "help out?" Should people be offering to, like, hold something? I don't have anything against breastfeeding at all, and it doesn't bother me in the slightest, but I'm just not sure how I could be helping out. It's not like I don't want to help, it's just that I'm not sure how. Should I, like, hold the baby or something so the mother's hands are free to play a Gameboy or learn the guitar? I guess I could do that, but I just think it might be kind of weird.
