I too am glued to the computer waiting for an update. I would expect the OP is super busy right now, I know she will let us know what is happening when she can.
I am outraged she and her sister have to deal with this right now, on top of a 17 month old with cancer. At a place that should be a safe haven. It is so heartbreaking. I hope if anything good comes out of it the OP doesn't feel so alone and is supported in such a difficult time. I hope she continues to update us on her nephews treatment and progress too. I hope this ordeal is the hardest part and all else goes very well.
Sent an email. It's really time we stopped letting the 'culture' of guilt-ridden formula feeders set bfing policy in this country. I'm done with this crap. If they get emails from every mother who's nursed in a restroom, been bullied from nip, it could be a tidal wave of epic proportions.
|To Whom It May Concern ( To any in your establishment fond of corrupting the laws set in place to protect us from ignorance):
It has come to my attention that a few members of your staff at the Ronald McDonald House of Houston have taken it upon themselves to interpret Texas Health & Safety Code § 165.002, which clearly states:
Sec. 165.002. Right to Breast-Feed. A mother is entitled to breast-feed her baby in any location in which the mother is authorized to be.
Suggesting that a nursing mother is not allowed into a communal area because other rooms are provided follows a discriminatory stance that has not been attempted since the Jim Crowe laws. Or so most thought...
As a prominent and active member of numerous charities here in Atlanta, Georgia, I will be forwarding all information regarding this situation to the xyz, xyz, and the Atlanta chapters of xyz, xyz, and xyz.
I encourage all involved to fully educate themselves on the above law and act accordingly and will be looking forward to a positive resolution to this case.
Sincerely, my sister
