That is so ridiculous! I'm in the US, and in my state public breastfeeding is protected. I don't think there's any age requirement. This weekend we went to Scottish highland games and nobody said anything when I breastfed my 13-month-old, but they probably didn't notice anyway. However, there were dozens of people smoking and blowing it all over me and my family and there were several things I wanted to say to them. It's funny how people don't mind having disgusting cigarette smoke blown into their faces, but find breastfeeding too offensive to bear!

I'm in the US, so unfortunately I can't sign the petition, but wow, that is just terrible! What is the deal? Doesn't the UK go by WHO's standards of a 2 year minimum for breastfeeding? I guess they're logic is "If a child can have solid food, they don't need to nurse in public"? I don't think there IS any logic in that! Especially when not all 6 month olds ARE ready for solids!

2008-07-10T12:54:00.000-07:00

I also had a hard time breastfeeding my 3 year old in public in the US because of this rubbish as you may call it. My 3 year old would still be breastfeeding if I had not become pregnant. You wouldn't believe the amount of people that I thought I was insane because I thought I would tandem nurse. It didn't happen for other reasons. This political crap is not going to help matters, and you are an awesome person to write about it! :)

2008-07-10T00:51:00.000-07:00

The stuff about 'maternity' is rubbish because last year they changed maternity leave to 9 months paid, so why would they suddenly pluck 6 months as the cut off?

Totally agree with Veronika, it leaves mums with babies over 6 months (or with big 4 month olds) open to abuse and harassment if they feed their baby in public. It also continues to fuel the myth that breastfeeding is only important until 6 months.

2008-07-09T22:14:00.000-07:00

Your fellow lactivists across the pond are shaking our fists in righteous indignation right along with you! What makes breastfeeding acceptable at 5 months and 29 days and then pornographic 24 hours later at 6 months? I don't get it!

2008-07-03T09:20:00.000-07:00

Just wanted to say that i saw you on Tyra and i wanted to offer hugs. What an amazing woman you are to stand up for something so wonderful...and how dare the audience try and sexualize something so wonderful. Breasts were not designed for male pleasure, much to hooters suprise...i can't believe anyone would see this as wrong and not an amazing gift. How great for a child to ask for breast milk for a birthday present instead of some britney spears t-shirt or something detrimental to their self esteem. Bravo!!! If you are ever in Michigan we would love to have you come speak to our LLL! You are my hero!

Thanks for your comment Helen. All is not as it seems, and if you dig a little further you'll find we're 'not off course' on this one. Best wishes, Veronika

2008-06-24T16:31:00.000-07:00

Um.... indecency is covered by criminal law in the UK, this white paper is dealing purely with the civil law, as it is an extension of the sexual discrimination act to include 'maternity' which they are defining as being up to 26 weeks post birth. It will not make it illegal to bf in public past the age of 6 months, but it will allow a mother to make a claim under the sexual discrimation laws, should she be refused access to goods and services by dint of her 'maternity' (and the example given is that of her bfing a child under 6 months of age being a reason to refuse her access to goods or services).

What a disgrace! Complete and utter disgrace! I am curently sending this link to the world and his friend and shall be laughing in the face (or is that breastfeeding) in the face of any law that may or may not be passed!!! Outrageous!!! :o(



Hi Veronika, With you all the way. Can't believe ...

2008-06-22T13:56:00.000-07:00

Hi Veronika,
With you all the way. Can't believe how child-unfriendly our country is! Indecent? How can quietly feeding your child EVER be indecent??? The lack of love & respect for our children perpetuated in our society's 'values' is indecent. It is indecent that so many young people succumb to drugs to fill the love chasm they have inside them. It is indecent that those drugs often lead to crime, to prison and for women, often suicide in prison. It is indecent that relationships break down as adults don't feel worthy of love. I could go on & on.....
Breastfeeding is natural, nurturing is a childs right. We can't wait for legislation to agree, we have to do what we feel is right for our children, the world's future lawmakers. I can't believe any judge would actually uphold a charge of indecency against a mother surely?????????? I only hope that if they did there would be a revolt on a scale to shock society back into sense.
You're fab,
Amanda, Alistair, James & Rory

2008-06-22T06:14:00.000-07:00

I breastfed both my sons, until they were over 2 yrs of age and stopped in their own time when ready. We have allergies and asthma in both sides of the family. I know I have helped give Our sons the added immunity to have the best start. I can only imagine what their symptoms could have been if I had chosen to feed them an alternative way. Some cannot breastfeed I appreciate that, but Breastfeeding has so many benefits health wise for the children and Mothers long term.
The CRIME is this petition has even had to come about, why should any Mother be punished because she isbreastfeeding ? It's the most natural thing in the world, and its about time the narrow minded, pre concieved ideas certain people have over breasts is understood. Breasts were for feeding Our children first and foremost! Why should Our childrens health come second to breasts as sexual images? I have gone on to promote breastfeeding further by creating a educational toy for the home, medical and educational sectors www.boobiebuddiesbfdolls.co.uk to educate future generations in a fun way.

2008-06-19T11:30:00.000-07:00

I can't believe it,- thanks for doing the petition - I'm still breastfeeding my 2 1/2 year old and in public whenever he wants. I'm still breastfeeding my 5 year old but we don't do it in public anymore, only because of the negative reaction we would probably get.

I couldn't agree more, I was really angry when I read about this new law. Personally, I don't care what the law says. My daughter is 3 in August, still happily breastfeeding and if she wants a feed in a public place, the law can get stuffed. My daughters needs come first.

Oh, Veronika, I can totally understand your passion and outrage at this piece of what has now become known as Breastfeeding Insanity, well according to my mailbox :)

As you can see I figured out how to make a comment on here, I had definitely confused myself as to what was involved, I'm now blushing at being quite such a techno plonker.

You are a shining light, keep up the wonderful work ! hugs, Hx
