A new mum was “humiliated” after allegedly being forced to prove she was breastfeeding before boarding an international flight last Thursday.
Gayathiri Bose, 33, told the BBC she was stopped by police at Frankfurt airport because she had a breast pump with her, but not her infant.
The Singaporean woman said her passport was taken and she questioned in a private room after staff became suspicious of the common device many mothers us to collect excess milk.
Bose said she was asked, “You are breastfeeding? Then where is your baby? Your baby is in Singapore?”
