Avery Lane, a Georgia resident, was breastfeeding her two-month-old son at a military post when she was asked to cover herself by a stranger. Her response is absolute gold.
She wrote about her entire ordeal on Facebook,

So I was breastfeeding my 2 month old at a H&R Block on a military post when the manager asked me “Can you cover up with a towel or something?” I was completely shocked so I raised my voice slightly and said “No but I have a muslin if you would like to cover your face. You must not know Georgia’s breastfeeding laws.”
He asked me to leave since he was helping my friend and not me. So I then called the Military Police so they could come and inform him of them. I’m glad they came and informed him that he could not tell me to leave. Also one of the MPs told me that there is nothing wrong with a mother breastfeeding her child.
I’m only posting this because I hope more moms will stand up to normalize breastfeeding. I refuse to cover my child or nurse in my car.
