Breastfeeding and Jury Duty – OUCH!


It never really occurred to me that moms in many cities must have a problem when it comes to breastfeeding and jury duty.  An article on explained a bill that was being proposed in Tampa, FL for mothers who are breastfeeding to be excused for jury duty.

How has this not been a problem in the past?  After reading the article, I could remember then pain that I had if I was late an hour or so to breast pump for my daughter.  Is it that not many moms happen to be breastfeeding at the time they are called to jury duty, or do many cities allow moms the option to be excused from duty?

This particular article stated that the mother was unable to be excused from jury duty so she just brought her child to court.  Well, you gotta do what you gotta do.   Not only do people of the court and legislation need to realize that it is beneficial for babies, but outrageously painful as your breasts fill up.
