A woman breast-feeding her 3-month-old son at a public pool was told to stop because she was breaking the pool’s rules that ban food or drink near the water,

Laura Whotton of Carrington in Nottingham, England, was swimming at the John Carroll Leisure Center in Nottingham when she decided to breast-feed her son Joshua.

“You are in a public area, you can’t breast-feed here because there are children here,” she said a lifeguard told her.

Whotton said she was offered a private room to feed Joshua, but she declined the offer, because she wanted to keep an eye on her older son Thomas, who was still swimming in the pool.

Ok, I know I’m supposed to feel bad for this mom for being oppressed by the system and all. But unless she is the greatest treader of water ever she really has no business doing this in the water. When you are expecting a nice big ol’ mouthful of warm, motherly milk, and instead you find yourself plunged deep into a chlorinated cesspool…let’s just say that’s the worst. I know from experience.
