Lets be honest John Gregory most blokes would do it discrete!!Yep they'd just pee in the pool!!!!!LOLWesty Monday 28 January, 2013 - 9:06 PM
You can't surpervise your kids in the pool with a baby on the tit! What happens if one is in trouble? Just shove the baby (11mths...mobile?) aside and leap in to save kid? In that heat should a baby be on the side of a pool in full sun? Sure, breastfeed your kids, but just don't be an exhibitionist about it! I don't mind a man having a pee in my presence so long as they walk away and turn their back. Have some respect for others....we don't want to have strangers tits and penises forced upon us....especially as a lot of both are not attractive!Ann Scott Thursday 24 January, 2013 - 4:45 PM
Yes of course a mother should be able to breast feed in public - it's so natural. However it also makes sense to be descreet or cover up a little.
Just like its natural to urinate - but people would be offended if a guy just pulls out his penis and urinates in public. No - you would expect him to be descreet.John Gregory Sunday 20 January, 2013 - 7:20 PM
My personal view is that breast feeding in public is fine and should be encouraged, however I think it should be done discreetly.
From a legal point it should be fine everywhere that is a public place but surely at a privately owned place such as a restaurant the owner must be allowed to determine if it is 'acceptable'.
What I don't get, is the 'natural' argument. There are an endless number of things which are natural, safe, healthy and should be encouraged that are not and should not be allowed in public.
But this does not mean all natural things should be banned in public nor does it mean that all natural things should be allowed. My point is that the fact it is natural is irrelevant when determining whether or not an action is publically acceptable.Blair Saturday 19 January, 2013 - 3:52 PM
i cant believe she was asked to leave or move away from the pool she was supervising her 2 older kids bet they would of caused a fuss if she left the kids to go to the change rooms to feed and left it up to the life savers to supervise her kids she was sitting supervising her 2 older kids while breast feeding her daughter if i could still breast feed i would be BF in public hate how they think this is taboo but teenage girls can walk around with barly nothing on and no one says boo if the family that complained did not like it they should not look or leave she was not doing any thing wrong completely naturalkate richards Friday 18 January, 2013 - 2:54 PM
No harm in putting a nappy over your chest if you want to breast feed in public. These women that feel its their right to flop their breast out in public need to be reminded that not everyone is ok with it. Why cause a fuss over nothing just cover yourself a bit ??
The person who was offended has no say in the matter what about her rights ???my say Friday 18 January, 2013 - 1:47 PM
