(Newser) – An angry North Carolina mother has lodged an unusual complaint about her infant's day care: She says a worker breastfed her 3-month-old son without permission. Kaycee Oxendine tells WTVD-TV in Durham that security footage inside Carrboro Early School showed a woman adjusting her top and bringing Oxendine's child to her chest to breastfeed him, per the AP. Oxendine said she had mentioned that her son was constipated, and a woman working in the nursery asked if she could breastfeed the boy to see if it would help. Oxendine twice said no.

Day care director Daron Council said another employee reported what happened and the worker is no longer there. Oxendine said she brought her lactose-intolerant son to the hospital that night because he was throwing up. She said the worker was fired, but she also wants her to face criminal charges. Police were investigating, but no charges have been filed so far. (Read more breastfeeding stories.)
