Targeting target breastfeeding moms from all over the country are whipping them out to with target -- to shape call it.
A nurse that the -- came up with the idea after target workers told one -- -- neither admitted into a fitting ran critics say the moms are just milking it.
But attorney Kelly -- says the ladies have a decent argument Kelly why do you say that.
Legal to breast feed I I understand that some people find it upsetting or don't want to see a woman breastfeeding your child in public but they do have the right to do sell.
And lots of states and our union mandate.
That they're allowed to do it -- discrimination and so what I think's going on here is that there are not very skilled target employees who probably didn't approach this mom and a right way.
If they would have faster in a way that was maybe less offensive to her she probably would of went.
In the -- room we have some one of mother are on camera talking about this very thing I wanna get your reaction to solicit us.
It's normal it's something that.
Formula companies then.
Just over the years it's not the norm anymore but that's its nature's and that people have an issue at that they need to look -- themselves because it's their problem.
But even if it's legal which it is in most states to breast feed whenever wherever you want to are the mother showing that they failed to understand the sensitivity of the issue.
Like if you get asked to go into a dressing room by some target boys -- not just go.
I happen to agree with you but I'm not a mother so I've never breast fed and I understand the urgency behind the situation sometimes I think I'd prefer the privacy.
So I certainly think that they're taking a stand.
But again I've never been deprived that right so I don't understand where they're coming from but I can -- making the point he we have this right I understand target site until.
They want to make a comfortable shopping experience for everyone.
And if somebody is a diabetic they have a right to take their insulin but they probably don't want target hobby -- want and shooting up in the middle of the store when there's restrooms -- or somebody asked her private area.
In -- instances where mothers have been targeted by employees and it while workers than in other stores it seems like.
That this store is the chains these businesses.
Organizations they're not telling the employees what the roles are.
And if they would just communicate better with the employees and that in -- might be a solution there.
I think you're right I think if the employees are properly trained if they knew a lot that they understand the woman's rights -- -- they say.
Hey listen you be more comfortable in the sitting room instead of -- going hair nobody wants to see that.
You know I think it's how you handle the situation in many times that there wouldn't be this outrage and now target is being branded as an anti breast -- establishment.
Because target's top employees wrote a letter and said hey we're not discriminating.
Kelly one last thing that -- -- banding together and breast feed their kids in public do you think that really changes any -- If anybody is Steve -- by breath of woman breastfeeding in public and there -- let me just a fact the light at some people are.
Do you think that really will change anybody's opinion about it.
-- absolutely not I know it freaks me out when I see anyone trust and public.
But still whether they're breastfeeding -- just going to revealing the top now I think I'm still gonna turn my had the other way -- respect their privacy.
I think the mothers would argue that one is bout nurse saying and feeding their baby another is -- well summed it all together to implement -- thank you so much.
