Mom Asked to “Unlatch” Breastfeeding Baby at Local Waterpark.

Young mother breastfeeding a baby in nature

I’ve never had kids. So I will never know the struggle woman face breastfeeding their babies in public. I came across a story today where a Jackson County woman claims she was breastfeeding her infant son at Gulf Islands Waterpark when  she was asked by a supervisor to cover up her baby with a towel to feed him. At 91 degrees the mom, Candace Setosta, nicely told them “no” and that “it was really hot” so she “would not put him under a towel.” She said that’s when she was asked to ‘unlatch him.”

According to Mississippi’s law, women can breastfeed a child breastfeed in any public place.

Have you ever been treated unfairly for breastfeeding your child in public? Share your thoughts on this topic.
