In the lastest case, the United States Postal Service has come under fire after asking a breastfeeding mom to leave the premises - two days consecutively, according to a report by INQUISTR.
In the report carried carried by WISC-TV, the incident happened on Wednesday and Thursday of last week after a mom identified as Raven Dibble stopped by a post office location in Janesville, Wisconsin to mail packages.
While waiting to be serviced, she began breastfeeding her 3-week-old daughter Harlow, only to be condemned by a USPS employee who stated that her actions were publicly “indecent.” The employee reportedly asked her to “cover up or leave.” Expectedly, she disagreed. And word got out to the media.
When interviewed Dribble said "I'm not standing up for my own right to breast feed my child. I'm standing up for other women to breast feed their child. I'm standing up for those children, my daughter, her right to eat."
Sean Hargadon, spokesman for USPS told the media "We have apologized to the customer for the incident and any inconvenience this may have caused her," adding "We have talked to our employees about the situation and have taken this opportunity to educate our employees regarding the law.".
