They told me to leave because I was breastfeeding.

Posted by   + Show Post

So I went to Wal-Mart yesterday to do school shopping with my 7 year old son and I brought my 1 month old son with me.

I EBF btw.

So we gathered up his school supplies and then went back to the shoe/sneaker department so I could purchase sneakers for my son for school.

We were the only ones in the sneaker aisle, no one else was there.

I had that nursing privacy blanket, that's what it's called.

For those who don't know what it is: it's a fabric type blanket that has a string on it so you wrap the string around your neck and cover yourself up while the baby is nursing so no one can see.

Well an associate was in the aisle because she was helping a customer.

She saw me and told me that I had to leave because that was inappropriate with that I was doing.

I asked her if i could at least check out first and she said yes.

So we checked out and left. =(

I was so embarrassed.

I find it disgusting when a nursing mom is asked to leave a room. Sometimes they suggest you sit in the toilet

In some ways its feels worse if a woman asks me to leave rather than a man. You would think a woman would be more understanding.
