CARRBORO, N.C. (AP) — Kaycee Oxendine told WTVD-TV in Durham that security footage inside Carrboro Early School showed a woman adjusting her top and bringing Oxendine's 3-month-old son to her chest to breastfeed him.

Oxendine said her son's teacher told her he was constipated, and when another woman working in the nursery asked Oxendine if she could breastfeed the boy to see if it would help, Oxendine twice said no.

Carrboro police said they are investigating, but no charges have been filed so far.
