Do we need a law telling women that they are allowed to breastfeed in public? I think not.
As far as I am concerned you shouldn’t need a law telling you that you are allowed to do something, the assumption should be that it is legal unless the law says that it is not.
Susie, my wife, breastfed both the boys while getting on with the daily business of living and she had no trouble fitting breastfeeding into that schedule. That meant breastfeeding in public where and when necessary.
It is perfectly possible to feed a baby discretely in public, the choice whether to or not is very much dependant on how confident the mother is with the whole process. While I am completely in support of women who want to breastfeed in public I can’t help but feel that this is rather unnecessary legislation.
That said I have never actually had to do it myself. Obviously!
