Kaycee Oxendine told ABC11 that a fellow daycare worker at Carrboro Early School where she teaches pre-K, asked whether she could breastfeed her 3-month-old son who was constipated.

Oxendine said she told the woman no, twice, and then left the nursery. Oxendine said moments later, the woman was captured on the daycare's security camera adjusting her top and holding the baby to her chest for several seconds.

Oxendine said her son was born prematurely and had never had breastmilk until that day. He became sick that night and Oxendine rushed him to the emergency room at UNC Hospital. He has since recovered.
