... Marysville Mom Asked Not To Breastfeed At Columbus Water Park | NBC 4i

I find this particularly ridiculous considering there were plenty of half-naked people running around, and yet a mother who covers herself is asked to go to a bathroom?! Just infuriates me how STUPID people are. They just shot themselves in the foot with this considering all the bad publicity that is likely to ensue.

I am appalled that this is still happening in 2012.

"We also have family bathrooms, and changing areas with chairs in the lockers room, but we do apologize that this was not made aware to you."

This is still unacceptable. Nothing should have been said to her, period.

Good point about the half naked people walking around!


And also the woman had a good point when she said "'Well excuse me sir, but you know we do have a cover so for all you know we weren't doing that"

I just am still just like right now.

Just makes me so ANGRY that things like this happen across the country still. Nursing mothers shouldn't be nervous about feeding their baby, and yet this happens. Even though there are LAWS in place.

And while i'm fired up, the comments in the article itself about "Well as long as the breast isn't hanging out or anything, then it's okay," that makes me angry too! Now I try to cover up as best I can, but the whole attitude of a large part of society of "as long as we don't SEE what you're DOING" - we're FEEDING a BABY. And until we move away from the whole "as long as..." (Nursing is okay, as long as... it's in another room/covered up/done in the back) mindset then people in places of authority will continue to make very bad errors thinking that they have a right to stop someone from nursing.

Gah.

He is still offering bathrooms and changing areas. I'm guessing that's not where the rest of the patrons eat.

"a child mentioned he saw it to his parents, who then in turn brought it to our attention."

And explaining to the child that this is how babies eat is of course out of the question.
