LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky Kingdom says it will allow women to feed their babies publicly in any manner they see fit.

The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1wfHQrt ) reports the statement stems from a social media outcry following a woman's claim she was asked to breast feed privately at the Louisville theme park.

Kentucky Kingdom chief executive Ed Hart's statement Friday reverses the park's previous stated policy requiring mothers to "use discretion."

Renee Michelle Villatoro says she was asked to go to a designated area in a restroom to breastfeed her infant son.

Villatoro says she had to stop feeding altogether because she couldn't leave her other children alone.

Villatoro says Hart called her and apologized.

A state law says no person shall interfere with a mother breastfeeding her child in any location where the mother is otherwise authorized to be.
