Sears Employee Posts Photos of Breastfeeding Customers

Sears Employee Posts Security Footage of Breastfeeding Moms to Twitter

It's one thing for a mother to share photos of herself breastfeeding. It's another thing for a stranger to post the pictures on social media, which is exactly what one Sears employee did earlier this week. Nick Carrington, a security guard at the department store, took footage of customers breastfeeding their babies and posted it to his Twitter account. Understandably, people were outraged by Carrington's actions and deemed him "revolting." Parenting blog We're Parents captured the photos before they were deleted and demanded Sears take action. The store responded to the incident last night with the following tweet:

This is really really unfortunate and disturbing but this is probably why my Mother taught me tricks for covering myself even with just the shirt I was wearing because there are weirdos out there. We all need to feed our babies but maybe covering just a bit more might offer just a little more protection from people like this man.

There is nothing wrong with feeding your child in public. I would feed my babies in public places, but AWAY from prying eyes. It's nice to sit somewhere quietly and nurse your baby.
Sears is a pretty desolate store these days anyway LOL. But really, I DO think that if you're going to just walk around a store, then use a cover of some sort. Give yourselves a little privacy. It's not polite to just walk around with half of your boob hanging out from your top.

Please fix your wording.... I don't understand what your post is saying: Understandably, people were outraged by Carrington's actions and deemed him "revolting." Parenting blog We're Parents captured the photos before they were deleted and demanded Sears take action.
