(WXIA)  A letter promising change was sent to a Georgia mom after she was kicked out of a locker room after trying to breastfeed her baby.

Caroline Hoffman was wearing her 7-month-old son Elliott in a baby carrier in the locker room of the L.A. Fitness in Buford when she was asked to leave. 

Caroline feeds Elliott in the carrier, snuggled close to her body, and covered with a drape.
