A mother is hoping police press charges against a daycare worker she says was caught on surveillance video breastfeeding her child without her permission.
Kaycee Oxendine recorded video from the security footage inside Carrboro Early School on Friday that shows a woman adjusting her top and bringing Oxendine’s 3-month-old son to her chest to breastfeed him.
Oxendine works at the daycare as a per-kindergarten teacher. On Friday, she said her son’s teacher told her he was constipated. When another woman working in the nursery that day asked Oxendine if she could breastfeed the boy to see whether it would help, Oxendine told her no, twice.
“She said that she had a son and did I want her to put my child to her breast and breastfeed?” Oxendine recalled. “And I said no, that’s nasty. We don’t do things like that.”
Later Friday evening, Oxendine rushed her baby to UNC Hospital because she said he became ill and was throwing up.
