My two littlest kids were at child watch at our local Y, my 10 month old was upset so I said to the care provider that I was going to nurse him to see if he would calm down, as I was sitting in a chair in the room.
She asked me to move to the infant area (and turn the chair) or the rest room. I asked why and she said other parents had complained about their children seeing mothers breastfeed there. At this point I simply moved and nursed the baby because he was upset. The lady wh asked me to move left the room and was still gone when I went back out to the gym.
Later, when I came back to pick them up She was there and I tried to explain that it was offensive, and illegal, to make me move. We debated back and forth for a while then she asked if I would like to speak to the branch director. I said I would.
The first thing this guy asked me was "were you at least covered up with a blanket?" no, I wasn't. He said he had never encountered a complaint like this before and would do some research and get back to me. I repeated the Georgia law regarding breastfeeding in public to him and left.
He called a couple hours later and started the conversation by saying, "I'm sorry you were offended and you were right, the law does protect you." Perfect! That's what I wanted - an apology and acknowledgement of law. BUT he continued, "but, we have to right to ask you to move as long as we provide reasonable accommodation." Uh oh. No, bud, you're wrong. We went back and forth over this for several minutes when he said, "why did you find it necessary to breastfeed in front of 20 other children?" I was, and am, terribly offended by this question - I felt like he was implying that I was doing something wrong, or inappropriate, or gross. I asked why I couldnt just feed my baby without being harassed.
I dont know what to do next...
