Breastfeeding tip : Recognising a growth spurt

* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)
* A baby who was previously sleeping through the night is now waking to breast feed several times
* Baby will latch and unlatch, fussing in between

default Where do we stand?

Post by SarahW on Sat May 24, 2008 7:09 pm

I was just wondering what the actual laws/rights are for us as breastfeeding mums, i know there is more than likely a post on here somewhere about this, but was just wondering. Cos want to know in case any one every asks me to stop when i am feeding in public, want to be able to have all the facts to hand (know my rights-were i stand legally). I am sure that one of you ladies will know ......

Maybe this will shed some light:

There was similiar topic while back on BB:
http://breastbuddies.nice-forum.com/breastfeeding-related-news-f13/breastfeeding-in-public-legal-t17.htm?highlight=legal+breastfeeding

It is legal to bf in public in England but if you live in Scotland it is unlegal to stop you to bf in public! LOL. So you can legaly bf in England but it is not unlegal for someone to stop you, if it makes sense. We've heard about mums being disturbed or excused from coffee shops etc for bf in public but moslt of them find that after complaining to manager/ boss they get big "We're sorry". If it doesn't happen we do a lot of noise and fuss!!! We dream about some kind of nurse in or something! Like this one in USA!!!

If I were to be asked not to bf in public i would hang tassles off my nipples and wear a skirt no bigger than a belt.

Young girls get away with flashing their bits (and getting chapped lips) every weekend so why can't I show the tiniest amount of flesh too.

Bring on the breast.
