Businesswoman carrying infant says she was kicked out of Chicago trade show
A Minnesota woman claims she was kicked out of McCormick Place for carrying her infant.
Kristin Osborne says security guards asked her to leave the National Restaurant Association trade show on Saturday.
The show has a strict policy banning all children under 16 for safety reasons.
Osborne has two other children and she says she knew about the ban but didn’t think it applied to her 10-day old infant.
She says she couldn’t leave her newborn because is breastfeeding.
Osborne was at the show to promote her family’s winery.
Women are legally allowed to breastfeed in all public places in Illinois.
But an attorney who is an expert in national breast-feeding laws says the law does not apply in this case because children are excluded for safety reasons.
