typical thick response in the comments, 'sex is natural but you don't see people bonking in Macdonalds' hmm

good for them!

want to leave a comment on there but think its signed in as dh (he comments on footy stuff) so dont think it would be good for a man to say he breastfed his daughters lol.

Muslin cloth over baby's head? hmm

I loved the comment about deeding being unnatural! PMSL! Felt obliged to register in order to post a comment.

maybe she wanted to conceal the babies identity? hmm I've used a muslin for a bit of extra privacy depending on what I was wearing - there is quite a lot of boob to be discreet with in my case. Must say it never went over the babies head though? I think this is an excellent response though and it's encouraging to see the company spokesman disowning the manager as well.

If having a muslin covering her baby feeding is what makes that mother comfortable feeding in public who cares??

Just came on to post about this too. I could pick holes in it, but genearally I'm really heartened by such positive coverage in the Sun. The tabloids and MacDonalds are exactly where these "battles" need to be fought!

oh i couldnt resists, left this comment!

'I am really lol-ing at these people who dont like breastfeeding in public. I mean, you read the sun, with its daily page three showing more nipple than the ladies in this picture are showing.

Get a grip people. its just flesh with a nipple on it. Actually theres a baby attached so u cant even see the nipple!

Have breastfed my daughters everywhere. When a baby needs feeding, it needs feeding then and there. They can't wait, unlike us. If you dont like to see it, then move. But dont expect ladies with babies to hide themselves away.'

While i might not use a muslin to cover up while feeding normally (i rely upon mu clothes mostly instead) i would probably be tempted to just in case if i was intending for the photo to appear in a national newspaper and on the internet!

They seem to have made their point though so well done to them.

I think these are the ladies who have organised the Bournemouth breastfeeding picnic! Go Ladies!! grin

Lovely story - amazed it's in the Sun. I like your comment Misdee smile

I'm so sick of "It's fine as long as you are discreet" hmm

DD is now 13 months and discrete it is not, especially as she now wants both boobs out at the same time and to swap between them every 30 seconds hmm. I do my best to cover up between swaps because even I am sick of seeing my own nipples! But does that mean I shouldn't feed her in public?

<Ahem> discreet

I like that comment someone made at the bottom 'They really don't like it in Macdonalds when you bring your own food in'

theSuburbanDryad Sat 19-Jul-08 09:27:28

Cod - ds would get my other breast out himself (if I let him).

How about you don't look?
