But she was left seething after a male member of staff told Ms Davis to use the toilet – which she refused.
Eventually, Ms Davis was able to breastfeed her son in a private room.It’s never happened to me before Chloe Davis reacted.
“I was in a meeting room with a male member of staff and my baby started screaming. I tried rocking him and his dummy but he was hungry.
“So I asked him is it fine to breastfeed, just out of courtesy really because it’s against the law to say no. It was more so he could leave the room if he felt uncomfortable.
Afterwards, she went straight to a young mums group where she spoke about what happened and told members of the group never to be afraid to breastfeed in public or a public building.
Councillor Abi Mills said she would complain to the council chief executive on Ms Davis’ behalf.
The councillor, who represents Scotforth West, said: “It’s appalling.
“I said ‘I’m not feeding my baby in the toilet, that’s not hygienic’.
“My support worker was with me. She used to breastfeed and was quite angry.
She said: “My landlord has sold the property where I live and given notice so I was there to talk about new housing.”
