Mom Asked to Cover Up While Breastfeeding in Las Vegas Hotel

Mom Asked to Cover Up While Breastfeeding in Las Vegas Hotel

Las Vegas is usually associated with clubs, dancing and a lot of skin. Which is why Jessica Martin-Weber, the blogger behind The Leaky Boob, was surprised when a manager at Flamingo’s Tropical Breeze Cafe, which is on the Strip, asked her to cover herself up while breastfeeding. Apparently she was making several other guests uncomfortable.

Taken aback, Martin-Weber told the manager that the law was on her side and that she would not cover up. Noting that the Flamingo hotel hosts a burlesque show, which is advertised with videos in its elevators, and the almost naked woman gyrating on a platform just outside the cafe's doors, she explained to readers that she wasn't about to violate her and her baby's rights just to placate strangers — all of whom had probably just seen a lot of naked flesh that was much more provocative than hers on their way to the cafe.
