New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman this week announced a partnership with Barnes and Noble to strengthen protections for breastfeeding mothers.

The campaign comes after a Rockland County mother was asked to cover up while breastfeeding in a Barnes and Noble in March.

New York State law allows mothers to breastfeed anywhere, regardless of how revealed they are.

According to a news release, the company is going to strengthen its employee education efforts, as well as review its customer complaint procedures.

It will also display the international breastfeeding symbol at the entrance to all of its stores in the state.

Scheiderman says he applauds the company, and says it's important to uphold the existing law, and treat all mothers equally.
