McDonalds in Shrewsbury told a breast feeding woman NOT to feed in front of loads of people. I thought I would share this with everyone.

I know you are possibly all now thinking "Why was she in McDonalds?" anyway.

shock I've fed in one McDonalds loads of times.

Did you see this happen? I would have told them to fuck off.

It's unbelievable. shock

But doesn't surprise me at Macdonalds.

Apparentlt, allegedly McDonalds is the worst place to breastfeed (some poll a while ago). I wouldn't move. Bloody McDonalds.

You're Clare Verity so I presume you are telling us to write and commend them for the excellent job they are doing? grin

They prob think she should give the kid one of their horrible milkshakes

mykidsmum Thu 27-Sep-07 14:32:13

the chairs at mcdonalds are so uncomfortable, would have hurt my back feeding there i reckon.

In Scotland it is illegal to tell someone to stop breastfeeding.

Maybe they were p**** off the baby wasn't having McMilk and having some fries.

i couldnt boycott I love maccys blush

Could stage a sit in though grin

clareverity Thu 27-Sep-07 14:45:59

Well, I wasn't there but would be tempted to do a sit but at 20 months old DS would probably not comply with the demo...but do feel some action would be good.

It's probably just an individual case - a new 24 year old manager who hasn't got a clue or something. I am pretty certain it's not company policy. But if anyone feels like kicking up a stink it can only do good as it might make head office send out directives to all their staff and make statements in the press about bf being a good thing (what with them trying to promote a healthy green image, tee hee).

geordiemacminx Thu 27-Sep-07 14:53:46

oooo that was a bit age-ist...

toadstool Thu 27-Sep-07 14:54:21

Wouldn't it only incite them to invent McNorks full of extra-sweetened formula?

EmsMum Thu 27-Sep-07 14:55:54

I couldn't have BFd in a Macdonalds anyway... DD always took longer than 45 minutes
