Breastfeeding mother told to leave public pool

Breastfeeding mother told to leave public pool

A mother says she was removed from a swimming pool in Texas City because she was breastfeeding. In response, local breastfeeding moms held a ‘nurse-in’ as a show of support.

On Sunday, Misty Daugereaux went to Nessler Park Family Aquatic Center with her nephew and two sons. Her 10-month-old got hungry, so she attempted to discreetly breastfeed him.

Daugereaux says a lifeguard approached her and said she couldn’t do that there because it was a public pool and against their policy. Daugereaux says she felt humiliated and hurt.

The situation ultimately ended with both the manager and Texas City police being called.
