Concord Mall calls police on woman breastfeeding in public

Posted by   + Show Post


This is woman was being questioned by the police (then her sister was questioned after her) because mall security reported them for exposing ourselves. The cop was once but says because the mall is private property, they can tell them to leave. They had a copy of the Delaware law with them but there is nothing about private property on here. Help ladies?!

Hi regardless of it being public or private, as long as she is able to be there in the mall she is allowed by law to breast feed her baby. That's already been proven earlier in this post. 

Quoting autodidact:

Didn't say it wasn't. Still a public place, she still has a right to be there, which means she has a right to nurse.

Quoting CABZS:

The mall is privately owned.


Quoting autodidact:

No, it's a public place, and women have a right to breast-feed anywhere they have a legal right to be.


Quoting CABZS:

While I think it is ridiculous it is private property & have a right to ask people to leave for any reason.

This is what I was told today. Anywhere you can bottlefeed, you can breastfeed. There are just as many, if not more, people who find bottlefeeding offensive as those that find breastfeeding offensive. The auhorities should  not cater to either. If one is not allowed, the other should not be.
