I am totaly discusted i really want to do something about it becasue NO mum should be verbaly attacked like that, i told hubby on the phone just now and he is going to have a few words with her on tuesday when he is off for the day
sorry i just had to vent i'm really upset and shockked still

She was breaking the law. You are allowed to breastfeed where the fuk you want now!... I'd certainly point this out to the school, that verbally abusing someone for breastfeeding in public is ILLEGAL...therefore the mother was commiting an illegal act infront of other children.

In England and Wales we're protected under two laws - sexual discrimination (all ages of child) and maternity rights (up to 6 months).

It IS illegal for someone to ask a woman to stop breastfeeding under the sexual discrimination laws and that head should of stepped in and sorted this right away.

If I had money and time on my hands I would sue that vile mother.

What disgusting behaviour infront of children and it doesn't exactly give them a good impression about breastfeeding does it!!


I would remind this head that it is illegal and you want this situation to be taken seriously and all children concerned who saw this and witnessed this stupid woman need to corrected.

If it was me I would threaten with all sorts and get her to do a talk about breastfeeding in Assembley

How can someone be so piggin ignorant??

The head should have stepped in - its not about taking sides, its lawfully protecting you as a breastfeeding mother.

As all schools should be heading towards healthy eating and living as well, breastfeeding should be encouraged and celebrated.

I have always fed Corey in assemblies and performances, mainly as it shuts him up
The teachers always offer me a private room if i would like one, which i always decline, and they are always happy for me to feed him wherever.

you need to have a very stern word with the school - they need to sort this woman out!! maybe encourage them to put a breastfeeding friendly sticker up?

big hugs to you - so sorry this has happened

thanks girls it's kind of brought out the cow in me lol i brought a top saying i make milk what's your super power and i'm hoping it'll be with us by tuesday as it's sports day and these mum's will be there and i will be feeding ben so i want to piss this mum off more by wearing it lol and my hubby is off for the day so he is going to come with me and have a word with this mother, i am also going into school on monday morning and going to see the parent support advisor and talk to her, i'm going to take my big folder full of breastfeeding info and going to show her and ask if the school have a policy and if not don't you think it'd be a good idea and i'm also going to tell her i'm going to the school governers about it too so while i'm there monday i'll be making an app with them, this woman has only empowered me to do something about it, she hasn't scared me into not feeding him, i will continue breastfeeding for as long as i like and if she has a problem tough monkeys

I'm so glad that you're staying positive about this and can hopefully bring something positive about from this. If the school don't have a policy then they certainly should do, and it might prevent other mums from facing this sort of abuse in the future. (It's obviously just a shame that you've had to face it now!).

Shocked Shocked Shocked I can't believe this happened to you hun and agree that the deputy head should have taken steps and also that you're right to take it further.

Aaaaaggghh it's women with attitudes like this around kids that make them grow up thinking it's not normal to BF Evil or Very Mad banghead

Hope your t-shirt turns up in time for Tuesday, that's the sort of thing I'd do to Twisted Evil

I'm very into an AP way of life, baby-wearing, co-sleeping, breastfeeding, etc. We're coming up to one year and I'm looking for places where I won't be looked down on for extended breastfeeding. I have no intention of weaning until Kacie wants to. We're also traying to conceive baby no. 2, so really hoping to tandam feed and will be looking for support to do this too.

Good... And if she makes more malicious comments point out that she is committing an illegal act and you are well within your rights to call the police.

im glad you have turned from upset to defiant

and if you put it in writing to the chair of governers, it classes as an official complaint and they HAVE to acknowledge it, investigate it, and take action!!!
