Got milk: nurse-in at the NYS Museum

Nurse-in at NYS museum

Two of the moms at today's nurse-in at the NYS Museum.

Kristen Kelly was back at the New York State Museum today. And she brought along a few friends. The young mom who was asked to stop nursing her child in public at the museum earlier this week was part of a "nurse-in" there this morning. A handful of young mothers and their nursing infants came along, and when the kids were hungry, they ate. The moms involved said they were treating it more as a show of support for Kristen and a day at the museum with their kids than a protest. They just wanted to remind people that nursing moms should not face the kind of discrimination that Kristen did. The director of the NYS museum has told local media outlets that the museum has no policy prohibiting breastfeeding anywhere in the building.
