TULSA, Okla. (FOX23) – A Tulsa woman says she was appalled after she was asked to stop breastfeeding at a local store.
Angelica Williams and her 3-month-old McKenzie are inseparable.
“I was feeding in the checkout line and some lady had come up to me and asked me to go to the bathroom to feed the baby,” Williams said.
Williams says she was fully covered at the time.
“It kind of made me feel ashamed. But I just told her that I’m not going to feed my baby in the bathroom,” she said.
FOX23 reached out to the store’s manager, who did not have a comment on the issue.
According to Oklahoma law, women can breastfeed anywhere they have a right to be.
Williams says this incident is not going to stop her from breastfeeding in public.
“When moms do breastfeed, they look for support, ” she said. “I don’t think anyone should be ashamed of it or embarrassed.”
