Nursing moms demonstrate at Clackamas restaurant

CLACKAMAS, Ore. (AP) — 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 (http://bit.ly/1mc4E6V ) it was an opportunity to train the staff.
