Nursing moms demonstrate at Clackamas restaurant

CLACKAMAS, Ore. - Dozens of mothers nursed their babies Sunday at the Ram Restaurant in Clackamas Town Center to protest the restaurant's treatment of a nursing mother a week earlier.

Erin Klein says a manager asked her to cover up her breast. The restaurant said other customers had complained.

But Oregon law permits breastfeeding in public, as the restaurant learned when a social media campaign brought the "nurse-in" to the Ram.

This time, the restaurant welcomed the nursing mothers.

The marketing manager, Mark Schermerhorn, told KOIN it was an opportunity to train the staff.
