All breastfeeding moms have been there before. You really have no control over when and where your baby is going to get hungry. You’re out and about and the baby starts to cry. As a mother, you’re not going to let the baby go hungry, because you’re a great mother. So you do whats natural and breastfeed your baby. Some people have a problem with that, as seen in this video. To cover up or to not cover up. Watch as this breastfeeding mom puts this woman in her place. The breastfeeding Mother Lucy Eades was asked to cover up at a recreation center in Texas, and her husband caught the whole thing on camera.
According to ABC WFAA, the mom of four was nursing her 16-day-old while her older daughter was in dance class. An employee of the Burleson Recreation Center asked her to cover up, but Eades stood up for her rights and continued to nurse. “It is state law, I can nurse my child with or without a cover,” she said.
The City of Burleson, Texas released this statement:
The City of Burleson supports breastfeeding and appreciates recognition of National Breastfeeding Week. The city also supports the law, which states, “A mother is entitled to breast-feed her baby in any location in which the mother is authorized to be.” Today, two women were breastfeeding in or near a public entrance to the city’s recreation center where we were hosting a camp for youth ages 5 – 13 in addition to other recreation center patrons. To be respectful of everyone’s rights we asked the women to cover up. There is nothing in the law that prohibits the city from requiring a mother to cover up. We also offered a room in an attempt to be more accommodative. The city did not attempt to prohibit breastfeeding and we fully support the freedom of mothers to breastfeed as long as it doesn’t infringe on someone else’s freedom.
