FORT EDWARD - A Washington County inmate recently requested to breast-feed her baby more frequently from prison. The request was rejected by Washington County officials.
Before the request was filed, the woman was allowed to breast-feed twice a day and had recently been reduced to once a day. The request asked for the mother to be allowed to feed her baby five or six times each day.
The jail had concerns that multiple visits could result in a security problem, according to jail officials.
