Argh, this stuff makes me mad. Off to Target on the 28th!
Wow... my jaw was on the floor the entire time! If I were her, I would be hiring a lawyer and suing Target and those specific employees for discrimination and harrassment. Like you said, Target on the 28th, here Trystan and I come!

TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE!
I don't like to NIP much because my DD gets distracted so easily, but I certainly want the right to do so and have done so many times. If anyone told me to move, or change anything about how I was NIP I'd be flipping my lid!
I have to work on the 28th so won't be at Target, but I'm with you in spirit!

That's awful. I live in Canada and there is no Target here yet. I had a similar thing happen to me a couple of years ago at a public pool. Anyways, the incident caused my city to make a lot of changes and make breastfeeding friendly policies that were in compliance with our province's human rights code - part of all that is consistent training of employees not to disturb nursing mothers. So going and speaking up will make a difference. Breastfeeding is normal, and normal means it can and should be done anywhere and anytime.

oh how I wish I had a target near me!
I honestly think that if I was ever approached by someone like that while NIP with my cover, I'd take the cover off. I am NOT a modest person, but I use a cover in public out of respect for others. Maybe I won't any more.

I was never comfortable nursing in public. I'm just a private person and I would hardly nurse with my family in the room, even with a big cover. However, stories like this still frustrate me to no end. If I wanted to NIP then I should be able to without being harassed. It sounds like this mother was being very discreet. Why couldn't they just leave her alone??
omg, i can't believe that happened to her, if it were me i would have finished feeding my lo and proceeded to cause a fuss the whole way out of the store. I never heard of a women being harassed so badly over BF.
It makes me sad since I love to shop at Target. I prefer to nurse Lilly in the car if i am out simply over my own comfort, but now I might just have to start feeding her in plain sight.
