Mom Banned From Victoria's Secret

Victoria's Secret Bans Breastfeeding Mom From Store

We would hope that Victoria's Secret, a lingerie store that has employed famous moms like Gisele Bündchen and Miranda Kerr (both of whom are strong breastfeeding advocates) would allow a women to nurse behind its fitting room doors. A mother in Texas recently learned that is not the case. Ashley Clawson had just spent $150 at the lingerie store when her baby boy started to fuss. She asked a salesperson if she could use the fitting room to breastfeed him. The employee said no and told Clawson she could use the alley behind the store since "no one usually goes there." Not only was Clawson humiliated, but it violated Texas law, which states, "A mother is entitled to breastfeed her baby in any location in which the mother is authorized to be."

To see how Victoria's Secret is reacting to the news, read the full story on The Stir.

She has every right to just breastfeed her child. If the store clerk had a problem with it they'd have to suck it up because its law that a nursing mother can feed her child where she like with or without a cover and in the open.

I've had children. I've been in malls when they were hungry. I haven't had a problem at all either going out to the food court and having a smoothie while my baby has her/his milk or if there was no food area just sitting on a bench and using a receiving blanket over my baby and breast to feed for privacy. I wouldn't feel entitled to VS fitting room privacy because I had purchased merchandise. BTW, look at it from another point of view. You are taking your baby with diaper bag, possible pram and your other goods into a fitting room for a good long time in a store that has high end, easily concealable merchandise. Easy way to rip of VS.
