Thanks Jean for telling me about this, I am not sure what I think.
A friend of hers just holidayed in Cleethorpes and said in a sea front chip shop theres a sign saying ” we do not allow breastfeeding in our restaurant – we have a private room if you require.”
So, is this anti breastfeeding or pro?
My first though was that they were horrible people but my second thought was that at least they provided some space for breastfeeders. Jean said ‘Well yes – but is it a cupboard ? Why should I sit in a cupboard when my family are eating watching the sea ? Do they have the right to impose sanctions on me as to where and when I can feed ? What if the room is occupied ? My baby might scream til he’s so distressed he can’t even latch on , what if I’m a single mum with 5 kids – who will take responsibility for the others if we don’t all fit in ?”
What do you think? Have you been to Cleethorpes and seen the sign? Have you seen similar in other places?
