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."
