“MUMS and babies are invited to join in a picnic in Bournemouth’s Lower Gardens to highlight the campaign to give them the right to breastfeed in public places. The event, from 12 noon to 4pm on Monday July 21 will coincide with similar picnics elsewhere in the country, including Parliament Square in London, Birmingham and Durham.”
This link to the full story is worth checking out for the comments – including
“Sorry but I dont want to see women getting their breasts out in public
It needs to be done in private”
There are some brilliant replies to this comment, and I especially like the reply from Sophie McInnes, from Upton Bosom Buddies
“Too few mums reach the NHS recommended 6 months’ breastfeeding already, without staring at a big, bouncy 4 month old as if to ask whether (s)he’s “over-age”, or glaring at a 12 month old because shock!horror (s)he’s still breastfeeding?! Just let mums get on with it, because chances are you won’t notice a thing other than a happy, smiling, full baby.”
Nicely put Sophie!
