A place for moms to connect
Apparently breastfeeding is a popular topic in the news right now, because I just came across another article online.
A Denver mother is less than happy after a judge "embarrassed" her in court. The mother said she had no choice but to bring her 6-month-old to jury selection since she is breastfed. The court denied her request for deferment.
What do you all think about this situation? Should the courts be more understanding toward breastfeeding mothers?
I think it probably would have been best for the mother to try to get a sitter while she went into the courtroom to explain her situation. I can see why the judge would be upset about a baby in the jury selection. However, I do think a mother should be able to get a deferment and be able to serve her jury duty at a later date if she is breastfeeding.
