The YMCA Pool

Last Fall, Nicole, a Moline, IL, resident, was enjoying a leisurely swim at her neighborhood YMCA with her family when she experienced a surprising interruption. When she got out of the pool to nurse her 7-1/2-month-old, a male lifeguard told her to breastfeed in the bathroom. Nicole says she has nursed her child at the Two Rivers YMCA before without a problem, but this time, the lifeguard offered to watch Nicole’s other children while she retreated to the restroom to nurse.
