woman kicked out of Toys R US for Breastfeeding!
 
I just saw the story on MSNBC!
on the tucker Carlso show. He was debating againt a woman from the NY civil liberties Union. She was escorted out of a NY Toys R US by security for breastfeeding!!
The NY law is that a woman can breastfeed anywhere a woman is allowed to be. I haven't heard anything about a nurse in, but there should be one!!

.. at a toy store of all places! You would think it would be family friendly!

So sad- makes me never want to shop there again! Someone would have to come arrest me to make me leave (I'm in Cali- legal anywhere here too cept private homes, etc)

I have plopped myself in a corner of a TRU many times to BF and I will be darned if someone were to kick me out! I would raise a stink. It's not against the law for a woman to BF any place a child is allowed and a TRU is a "child friendly" establishment LOL

That was totally against her rights and that poor baby's rights to feed/eat there!!!! :mad: that makes me soooooooooo upset for her! She should take some legal action to further put this information out into the open that these business's have NO right to kick BFing woman out (of course unless it's an establishment/business that does not allow children. ie: courts).

Yeah that is absolutely ridiculous. I bet the guy who made the decision to kick her out is gonna get it. Hopefully he'll get fired for it and it'll teach everyone a lesson.


Did you see Tucker Carlson on Dancing with the Stars? :rofl:

i hope she takes legal action too, and that person gets FIRED and the mama is given an apology. TRU needs to do something before they lose there cutomers, this makes me not want to go anywhere near TRU, i hope she gets an apology and gets compensated for the hassle:thumbsup:

I go tot TRU all the time and have never had a problem there!! That TRU sucks and I would probably never shop there if that is how I had been treated. Everytime I BF there people are very nice to me!

How awful! I've breastfed in my Toy R us and in my BRU there is even a nursing room! How stupid.

oh this just steams me!!!! i just cannot comprehend how they can tell someone to not feed their baby. i wonder if they made her stop feeding the poor child on her way out? i just don't understand how it's wrong to feed your child?
esp tru...they sell bfing supplies for petes sake!!!!!!!!!!
