Baxter-Kauf: "Breastfeeding in Custody Proceedings: A Modern-Day Manifestation of Liberal and Republican Family Traditions"

Kate Baxter-Kauf has posted "Breastfeeding in Custody Proceedings:  A Modern-Day Manifestation of Liberal and Republican Family Traditions" (forthcoming Richmond J. L. & Pub. Int.) on SSRN.  Here is the abstract:

This article explores the relationship between breastfeeding in custody proceedings and the supposedly discredited common law coverture and tender years doctrines. It argues that the case of custody disputes highlights the contradictory nature of family law through the relationship between parental autonomy, the privatization of dependency, and the judicially determined appropriateness of maternal relationships.

The 'tender years' presumption is accurate in most cases - here in Oklahoma, our law makers abolished the presumption about 30 years ago.
