One hot summer day during the holiday season, Stephanie Buchanan and her brother’s wife spent their day by the public swimming pool.
In total, they had 6 children in their company, along with Stephanie’s youngest baby Roman who was just 3 months old.
Roman started to cry as Stephanie relaxed in the wading area of the pool in Mora, Minnesota.
While sitting at the side of the pool by the shallow end, she pulled down one side of her swimsuit to nurse her baby as she knew he was getting hungry.
Stephanie claims that moments later a female guest approached her and asked that she cover up because her sons were swimming in the pool.
A member of staff approached and instructed Stephanie to be more discreet and cover up or find a quieter area to feed her baby.
Stephanie along with her sister-in-law both breastfed at the same time and were taken by complete surprise when they didn’t even have a chance to respond.
Refusing to stop nursing to their children, a police officer arrived soon after requesting that the women return home.
According to Minnesota statute, “A mother may breastfeed in any location, public or private, where the mother and child are otherwise authorized to be, irrespective of whether the nipple of the mother’s breast is uncovered during or incidental to the breastfeeding.”
Stephanie took to Facebook to share her story where it quickly went viral where other local moms from her community are also helping her fight back in a huge way.
If you agree with Stephanie then please SHARE this post with your friends or family.
