Furious mom claims day care worker breastfed her baby
A North Carolina mother hopes police will press charges against a day care worker who allegedly breastfed her 3-month-old son without permission.
Kaycee Oxendine told WTVD that she used her phone to record footage from the security video at Carrboro Early School showing a nursery worker adjusting her top and breastfeeding her baby.
"That's an innocent baby. My baby couldn't say, 'No, don't do that.' He couldn't defend [himself]," said Oxendine.
Oxendine, who also works at Carrboro Early School as a pre-K teacher, said the woman told her the baby was constipated and recommended a remedy on Friday.

"She said that she had a son and did I want her to put my child to her breast and breastfeed? And I said, 'No, that's nasty. We don't do things like that,'" Ozendine said.
Oxendine says she said no twice.
Later on Friday, Oxendine rushed her son to the UNC hospital after he began throwing up and grew ill.
Her son was born prematurely and is lactose intolerant.
"She did it with ease like it's something she does on a normal basis," she said.
The woman has since been fired, Oxendine said, but now she wants the police to press charges.
"Not only did you put your breast to my son, you also made my son sick," Oxendine said. "I would hate for any parent, any family to have to go through what me and my family have had to go through."
"To me, a criminal act was committed against him."
As of Tuesday, local police are still investigating the incident as child abuse.
