Looking at visiting a craft centre near me - went onto their website and viewed their visitor information and noted the following statement
"We welcome discrete breastfeeding on our site, but would appreciate care being taken not to cause embrassement to our other customers."
Very shocked at this ..... They feel their customers would be embrassed by a baby having their lunch - how kind of them to even allow it - we should all be so greatful!!
My dd2 is nearly 1 yr so won't need to breastfeed during daytime but this has wound me up so much that I will never go there now ..... Shoud I go further and send them an email of complaint or am I being over sensitive?
But at least it's been removed. I don't feel militant about many things but about a woman's right to feed her child in public, and the baby's right to be fed - if everyone else can gorge away, why not a baby?
I think the fact the place has taken swift action to remove this phrase from their website hopefully means they are not out to offend anyone and have possibly been misguided - possibly a customer id complain and they took acton due to the complaint - who knows.
but they have not left the wording on the website and hopefully that will mean they do care
