Breastfeeding Mom Kicked Out of Chick-Fil-A For “Indecency”

After Hornung took to social media to express her displeasure at being kicked out of Chick-fil-a for breastfeeding her infant child who depends on her for nourishment, she DID receive an apology from the manager, which I appreciate! We all learn from experience and hopefully this manager will share her story with other employees and it won’t happen again.

For my part, I am sharing Hornung’s experience because breastfeeding is natural, important, not shameful, and perfectly acceptable to do in the open. Do I think moms should attempt to be modest about it? Sure, and most do. None of us REALLY want to flap our big nursing boobs at the fast food restaurant for all to see. We just want to take care of our kids. Whenever and wherever they need caring for. When my first child was a baby I would try to feed him in restaurants and it was SO awkward and horrible. Finally, I just GOT OVER IT and practiced my right to feed my child in public (after all, can’t everyone ELSE eat in public??) and I never looked back.

Have you ever been given a talking-to because of public breastfeeding? What was your response?
