On April 21, 2017, mom Avery Lane posted a Facebook status update that still rings true for mothers everywhere.
She told the story of how she was breastfeeding her two-month-old at an H&R Block when the manager walked up to her and asked if she could “cover up with a towel or something.” in obvious shock, she responded, “No, but I have a muslin if you would like to cover your face. You must not know Georgia’s breastfeeding laws.”
The post continued to say that the manager then asked her to leave given that he was helping her friend and not her. “So I then called the Military Police so they could come and inform him of them. I’m glad they came and informed him that he could not tell me to leave. Also, one of the MPs told me that there is nothing wrong with a mother breastfeeding her child,” she wrote in the post.
She concluded her post by writing: “I’m only posting this because I hope more moms will stand up to normalize breastfeeding. I refuse to cover my child or nurse in my car.” Along with the status was a photo of her and her child being breastfed.
