Bonnie McCall holds her 5-week-old son, Nolan Sullivan, in their Cedar Rapids home on Tuesday, May 4, 2010. McCall is upset that a Lindale Mall security guard told her to breastfeed her son in the family restroom instead of the children's play area. In response, area moms will hold a nurse-in at the mall this Sunday. Iowa law allows women to breastfeed in any public area where she is allowed to be. I shot some portraits of Bonnie with Nolan on the porch, and some photos of her feeding him, but really liked this moment. Good thing, too: we had a photo of a military wife feeding her child on page 3 of the same section.

  1. Can u tell me when the nurse in is? I would love to go and support this mom but can't find any information anywhere!

  2. There's a link in the post to the story on gazetteonline -- that's all the info I have. I believe the mall is open 11 or 12-6 on Sundays.

  3. The nurse-in is planned for sunday at 4 pm at the play area.
