AUGUSTA, GA (AP) — Mothers have come to the defense of a woman who says she was asked to cover up while breastfeeding inside a Chick-fil-A in Georgia.
The Augusta Chronicle reports that mothers held a “nurse-in” this week at the restaurant near Augusta.
Samantha McIntosh says she was breastfeeding her daughter in a booth at the restaurant Monday when a manager approached.
McIntosh says the manager told her they’d had a complaint and asked her to cover herself.
McIntosh shared her experience on Facebook in a post that attracted scores of comments.
Chick-fil-A says the store owner has apologized to McIntosh.
