Where Do You Stand on Breastfeeding in Public?
A New England mother was asked to cover up while feeding her child at a restaurant this week.
The topic of breastfeeding in public forged into the spotlight in New England this week, after a mother chose to breastfeed her child in a Hillsborough, N.H. restaurant.
Protesters gathered outside the Tooky Mills Pub in Hillsborough on Wednesday, after a local mother was asked to cover up while breastfeeding her 10-month-old child, exposing a breast in the restaurant's dining room, according to a report on WCVB.com.
The request to cover up, which was followed by customer complaints, resulted in a protest outside the restaurant Wednesday night.
Those protestors spoke out in awareness and support of the mother, as well as in support of breastfeeding in public.
Where do you stand on this issue? Do you think mothers should be able to breastfeed their children in public with out debate? Do you agree with the decision by the staff at the New Hampshire restaurant?
