BREASTFEEDING AT POOL


ONE PUBLIC POOL DEPARTMENT IN SOUTHWEST OHIO WILL ADD MORE EDUCATION FOR LIFEGUARDS AND STAFF AFTER A MOTHER SAYS SHE WAS SHAMED FOR BREASTFEEDING AT A POOL. CIMARRA PIERMAN SAYS A CINCINNATI LIFEGUARD ASKED HER TO LEAVE BECAUSE SHE WAS BREASTFEEDING HER BABY. 
PIERMAN REFUSED AND A POOL MANAGER BACKED UP HER RIGHT TO BREASTFEED HER BABY IN PUBLIC. 
CINCINNATI PUBLIC POOLS SAY THEY WILL ADD A NEW POLICY TO CLARIFY THE LAWS SURROUNDING BREAST FEEDING.  SO, WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS AS A BREASTFEEDING MOM? OHIO LAW STATES YOU CAN BREASFEED YOUR BABY IN PUBLIC, WHEREVER AND WHENEVER YOU WANT.
