A Brooklyn mom is threatening a “nurse-in” at the flagship Times Square Toys R Us store after being given the run-around by “security” while publicly breastfeeding her oh-so-stylishly coiffed baby, Mason, seen here.
Upon careful reading of the news story, it seems the milker was sitting next to her stroller while breastfeeding, when Toys R Us employees interrupted and attempted to move her to the basement of the building.
Did Toys R Us really ask her to leave the sales floor? Is the woman just trying to drum up business for her mom’s organization, La Leche League? Isn’t La Leche just a nickname for Lindsay Lohan?
Oh well, it doesn’t matter. According to New York law,
“a mother may breastfeed her baby in any location, public or private, where the mother is otherwise authorized to be, irrespective of whether or not the nipple of the mother’s breast is covered during or incidental to the breast feeding.”
What this means is that the woman could have sat in the middle of the Lego aisle trying to see how far she could squirt and still hit the kid’s mouth, and there’s not a damn thing Toys R Us can do about it.
