default i thought it was legal to breastfeed in public?!

Post by Helen on Mon Jun 16, 2008 3:51 pm

Anyone read the article in the daily mirror today about how it will soon be legal to :boob: in public?! I thought it already was!

It say we still face charges under public order or indecency laws.

And that laws are on course to be introduced this year will make it an offence to stop any mum from breastfeeding a baby who is aged up to six months.

Its disgusting a woman should have the right to feed her baby anywhere anytime. What are we suppose to do? Sit at home all day?!!! And as for the 6 month thing - it is so absurd (sp?)!!! Evil or Very Mad Fair enough if they are 18 and still having bitty then maybe :boob: in public isnt the best idea! haha!

It is legal already scratch

Noone can legaly ask you to stop feeding your child in public.

Actualy I only think it was proposed last year around the same time
