We've spent weeks researching and testing breast pumps and bottles in real homes with real families. Read our baby feeding bottle and breast pump reviews to find out which ones were awarded Mumsnet Best.

But some people should be less free than others...


For info - the title of the article is "Sorry, mother's milk belongs under wraps"

Poughkeepsie, isn't that the place where they all get very excited about the groundhog?

Hmmm, and what are we supposed to do for that magical first year, then? Sit at home?

I always think these people must have much deeper issues. If only she could see how ridiculous her statements come across.

Do you think she is objecting to breastfeeding where you see the whole lot or the shawl / blamket cover-up kind as well? I personally only ever indulged in the latter and will no doubt get lynched for saying that think it is more sensitive to do it that way in v public places...

I'm not sure what these lactivist feed-ins or whetever they are called involve. Perhaps the women do sit outside a building and completely expose themselves whilst they feed their baby.

I have never, ever seen anyone feeding their baby indescreetly. You'd have to stare very hard to be aware of it. As for sitting next to someone on a plane who is breast feeding... how would you know? OK, you know, but you don't need to look. We don't closely observe the activities of any other strangers we sit next to on planes. If the baby was making slurping noises, well, you're going to get that when a baby feeds from a bottle too.

me neither beatie and can't see why anyone would object to discreet feeding - the article seemed to be talking about women flashing their breasts whilst doing it and I have only seen that in mother/baby groups and chnaging room swhich is fine by me
