Airport security demands nursing mom squeeze her breast to prove she's lactating.

A nursing mother named Gayathiri Bose was traveling to Paris from Frankfurt alone when airport security in Frankfurt became suspicious of her breast pump. According to the BBC, since Bose was traveling without a baby, a female officer demanded that she open her shirt and squeeze her breast to prove that she was, indeed, lactating.

The 33-year-old Singaporean mom of two kids was stopped at the security screening station on her way to board a flight to Paris. She put her carry-on bag (in which she'd stashed her breast pump) through the X-ray machine, and was then taken aside by airport security agents for questioning. Speaking with the BBC, Bose said, "[They had] an incredulous tone. 'You are breastfeeding? Then where is your baby? Your baby is in Singapore?'," she said.
