The water-cooler chatter today will most likely be the nursing incident at a Target store in Houston, Texas. Last month at a Webster, Texas Target store, Michelle Hickman began nursing her fussy, hungry infant son in the store’s women’s clothing section. Hickman said that eight Target employees eventually surrounded her and two asked her to move to a fitting room to finish nursing. The other employees, she said, rolled their eyes at her and gave her dirty looks.

According to GMA;

A nursing mother’s upsetting experience at her local Target last month has led to what appear to be “nurse-in” demonstrations at Target stores nationwide.

Mothers from across the country have posted pictures of themselves nursing at Target stores – from Maryland to Minnesota – to a Facebook page used to organize the event. (A Target spokeswoman has confirmed that nursing mothers showed up at Target stores today but said the chain was still gathering information on the scale of the demonstrations.)

“I never knew that sitting in a Target and doing what’s normal – which is feeding my baby – would result in all of this one day but I’m glad it did, ” Michelle Hickman, the woman who inspired the event, told ABCNews.com.
