But how many of the respondents were b/f mums? Or mums at all come to that? Surely the poll would throw up a different response if ONLY mothers were allowed to answer. If this was the case, it's a depressing outcome. (not that it isn't anyway).
However, regardless of this, I don't really care if I offended ANYONE by b/f in costa coffee, at the side of the pool, whilst walking around tesco, at the doctors surgery, in a restaurant or indeed anywhere else I chose to nork my babies (sorry - read that on another thread and made me laugh alot) I was never challenged (as it happens) and I was always ready to give a right earful to anyone who had dared anyway.
And so was DH (he was mildly disappointed we were never challenged so he never had a chance to have a good old public rant about it...)
Why do they think they are to decide whether mums should bf in public - none of their business or concern. Why should someone who isn't bf think they can say what a mum who is bf can & can't do. Would they answer the same to if they could eat a sandwich or have a drink in public?????? Polls like this just make mums feel uncomfortable looking after their child as they see fit.
j** what is peoples problem with b/feeding in public? what does it matter to them what a mum might be dong under her top.
god its not the boobs are put on display for full on viewing.
and people dont have to look.
good point catbert, its like all polls are the answerers the right people to be questioned .
