Mothers continue to have trouble finding places to breastfeed that don’t offend people. At the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum Vanessa Bailey was told by three security guards she couldn’t breastfeed in the lobby. She called attention to it by going on the Twitter.

“Was just told nursing is only allowed in the bathroom stall per museum policy. What the what?!” read one tweet to @GWBLibrary.

Other similar tweets were sent to the accounts of former first lady Laura Bush and her daughter Jenna Bush Hager, also a new mother.

Late Monday night, the library’s Twitter account offered an apology and explanation.

    Let me know when the B*sh “library” apologizes for the Iraq War.

    Why would this mother expose her baby to the horrors of the B*sh library in the first place? The place stinks with lying propaganda.

    So just to clarify these evolving laws regarding breasts, a women’s breast cannot be exposed in public (most places) unless it has a pair of baby lips attached to it?
