    Is it indecent exposure if a nipple briefly pops out while breastfeeding in public?

    I know they have modesty garments and breastfeeding covers, but what if by chance more is seen than is intended? Does that count as indecent exposure and can a breastfeeding mother be arrested for that?

    There are many states that protect the rights of breastfeeding mothers. You may find this helpful:
