CHESAPEAKE, Va. – Patrons at a Virginia eatery complained after a mom was seen with a shot in a beer while breastfeeding.

The restaurant manager at Big Woody’s confronted her and asked her to cash out.

The upset mom took to Facebook and slammed the business for being unfriendly to breastfeeding moms.

She had admitted to NewsChannel 3 that she did have alcohol, but that she didn’t plan on drinking it until after she was finished nursing.

Crystal says has a degree in chemistry and has done her research and that the amount she drinks does not affect her breast milk.

Crystal plans to organize a ‘nurse-in’ to protest.

The restaurant owners plan to retrain their staff to improve their approach if and when these sensitive matters come up.
