Published:
Welcome to the When Nurture Calls campaign. This aims to protect a mother's right to breastfeed her baby in public by striving to pass the bill HB1706, which will protect breastfeeding mothers from harassment and discrimination when they choose to nurture their child in public.

To start off, there would be print ads placed on the back of bathroom stalls. These ads create a "reflection" of the stall facing it, and show mothers who have been harassed to the point where they feel they have no other option but to nurture their baby in the restroom as to not offend anyone. The body copy on the ad reads:
 
"Would you eat here? By law, breastfeeding mothers are not protected from harassment and refusal of service in public, often forcing them to feed in secluded spaces such as public bathrooms. Contact your state and/or local representative to voice your support for breastfeeding mothers, because a baby should never be nurtured where nature calls."
 
 
 
**Please note that the logos used are purely for aesthetics. USBC, La Leche, and Borden have no actual affiliation with this project.

Here is the Website that explains the basis of the Campaign:
The campaign, theoretically, is a partnership with La Leche League and the United Breastfeeding Committee with Borden Milk and restaurants that support a mother's right to breastfeed in public. The website further explains that the donations and petition signing will help promote this campaign to pass bill HB1706; this bill will protect a mother's right to breastfeed in public and keep her safe from discrimination and harassment.

So how would you buy a carton of milk to help? With the support of restaurants that support HB1706 and a mother's right to nurture her child when she needs to, customers can purchase specialized milk cartons, provided by Borden, that represent 1/4 of a baby's daily milk intake. The money from these cartons goes to support the campaign and its efforts to pass HB1706.

Along with these milk cartons would be table tents to alert customers of the campaign. These table tents tell that at the restaurant they are eating at, breastfeeding mothers will always have a table for her and her baby. They will always have a Table For Two.
