"A patron came up, a lady at the pool, and told me that I needed to cover up," Buchanan says.
Davis then started breastfeeding her child in solidarity. A pool employee asked them to cover up or move to the locker room. They refused and decided to leave the pool. That's when a police officer approached them.
"I said 'Minnesota state law protects me to feed my baby anywhere that I need to,'" Buchanan says. "He said, 'I understand, and I let the establishment know, but they reserve the right to ask you to leave.'"
The women say they were humiliated at first. But then dozens of fellow moms showed up in Mora over the weekend and nursed their children outside the pool. The outpouring of support online, and at the so-called nurse-in protest, encourages their efforts to advocate for breastfeeding moms.

Why have some folks suddenly lost their damn minds over a baby being fed?
My first wife breastfed our son in public 30 years ago and noone said a word. 2nd wife breastfed both of our kids 20 and 18 years ago respectively....and nada.
Its a breast. Its a baby.
Get over it.

If people think this is nasty, consider the fact we are the only mammals that drink milk from another species breasts or (utters). We don't even drink milk from our own species after infancy which should be the end to drinking milk after that. Humans are weird I tell ya.
Jesus do people not have anything better to do than call the cops to harass others?
