A New York mom says she was harassed by Toys “R” Us employees for breastfeeding her 7 month old son in the Times Square store. Chelsi Meyerson said employees tried to get her to go somewhere else to feed her baby. When she refused, she said they summoned a security guard. The store says employees only offered a private room and did not call a guard.
New York State law allows breastfeeding in most public places. Meyerson, with backing from the American Civil Liberties Union, is demanding an apology and compensation.
Here’s a press release from the ACLU.
Here’s a story from UPI.
Personally, I’ve had to feed both of my kids in “kids” stores many times. These stores are populated by parents, grandparents and other caregivers after all. They’ve seen it all before. And I’m sure they’d choose a little discreet breastfeeding over a screaming, inconsolable baby.
