I went to visit my Dad in hospital yesterday and while I was there fed my baby. The ward had three other male patients who were paying no attention to me and were asleep most of the time and didbt even notice. Later that day my dad was asked by a nurse to tell me not to feed her. I am slightly confused if I have done something wrong?

While I always advocate bf anywhere and everywhere, I do think this is slightly different. In general, if ppl are uncomfortable with seeing bf, they can go somewhere else. In this case, they prob couldn't. I do think the nurse handled it badly though

And hospitals, yes. Any and every ward...not sure
