A menagerie of nursing mothers, their babies, older children, some fathers, baby strollers and the media crammed clothing store H&M yesterday in a breastfeeding protest.
The women were angry over a store clerk's request to Manuela Valle last week to move to a change room while she nursed her two-month-old baby.
Veronica Polanska, one of the organizers of the so-called "nurse-in," said the protest wasn't about Valle or H&M specifically.
She said the women wanted to draw attention to the outrage they feel when any business suggests nursing in public is shameful.
"It's about every business, whether it's an airline or whether it's a restaurant, whether it's a pool . . . it doesn't matter where it happens, it's not acceptable."
