Mother's milk a sour point
"A security guard at a Medicaid office in Midtown ignored the state's breast-feeding-friendly laws and demanded that a mother stop nursing her baby, according to the mom and her lawyer.
Susana Aldanondo, 33, a mother of three, isn't seeking a dime -- but in a letter to the city's Human Resources Administration, her lawyer, WABC Radio personality Ron Kuby, is demanding an apology and a commitment to train workers.
Aldanondo was at the West 34th Street office on Sept. 24. She said she was discreet in nursing her 3-month-old son, Nicholas, making sure the baby was tucked under her shirt.
"That's when this officer said I couldn't do that there. I just looked at him," Aldanondo said.
"He said, 'Get up, turn the chair around and face the wall.' "
When Aldanondo whipped out her cellphone and pretended she was calling her lawyer, the guard walked off, she said.
An HRA spokeswoman said, "HRA will continue to fully comply with the law as it relates to this issue."
Finally Ron Kuby is doing something worthwhile - let's hope this raises some awareness. Related link: La Leche League
