Authorities Eject Breastfeeding Mom From Texas City Pool

A woman was told to leave a public pool in Texas City, on June 9, for breastfeeding her child, bodycam footage from Texas City police showed.

Local woman Misty Daugereaux was breastfeeding her 10-month-old Maxx at the Nessler Park Family Aquatic Center.

According to a personal account from Daugereaux, a lifeguard approached her and said she was not allowed to do so.

A police officer was called to the scene.

In this video, the facility manager can be heard saying that it was pool policy to keep covered, and that Daugereaux was “breastfeeding”.

The employee then said that Daugereaux “cussed out” pool staff, which she denied.

“That baby was latching on one breast and she had both of them out,” the female manager told the police officer, in an exchange recorded on his bodyworn camera.

A visibly upset Daugereaux explained to the officer that it is lawful to feed her baby and that she did not swear at staff.

“It’s so embarrassing that I can’t feed my baby,” she said.

She was then told to leave the pool with her baby and two children.

Following the incident, Texas City Mayor Matthew T.

Doyle and City of Texas police commissioners released a statement apologizing to Daugereaux.

“We are reviewing the nursing concerns raised at the Nessler Pool and how it was addressed by our staff.

We apologize to Misty Daugereaux as it is clear she was offended by how she was treated at our City Facility.” Credit: Texas City Police Department via Storyful
