Mum banned from breastfeeding at poolside for breaching food and drink rules.  Yeah. Really.

Well, what next?

How could I ignore this one?  I wasn’t even looking for it but once I read the headline, well you know. I got hooked and followed the link.

OK I have to say honestly once or 2wice I saw that on the high street (main street through town) and I didn’t find anything appealing about it.
I can’t explain it. Just felt like a peeping tom or something. But alright, not making a big deal outta that.
But ... how does breast feeding come into food and drink rules?  It just strikes me as awfully funny.  I have never heard of that.

Anyway, aren’t most women more modest in this situation? I’d have no way of knowing of course but it just seems like something a lady would do in private. No?  It’s almost like exhibition but I do admit I am probably very wrong about that.

Anyway, I’m still cracked up and laughing at the guys reasoning on the subject. Too funny.


Mum banned from breastfeeding at poolside for breaching food and drink rules

A mother was told to stop breastfeeding her baby boy by a swimming pool as it breached a leisure centre’s ban on food and drink.

Laura Whotton was left fuming when a member of staff said she could not feed 11-week-old Joshua by the pool at John Carroll Leisure Centre in Nottingham.

The 26-year-old was feeding the hungry infant while keeping an eye on her son Thomas, four, splashing about in the water.

‘There was nothing on show and it looked like I was just holding my baby,’ said Laura, who had been wrapped in towels at the time.

‘People in bikinis were showing more skin and breast than I was.’ She added: ‘It was ridiculous because the first thing he said to me was “are you breastfeeding?” He couldn’t actually be sure I was.

‘When I said “yes”, he told me I couldn’t feed by the pool as there were children present.

‘I was feeding a baby; it’s the most natural thing in the world and I was made to feel like I was doing something terrible.’

Laura said she was left ‘extremely angry and upset’ by the ban.

‘It could put people off going swimming and has made me not want to go to the John Carroll Leisure Centre again,’ she said.

Today, Nottingham City Council insisted there had been ‘a misunderstanding’ and has promised to apologise to Ms Whotton. It is also issuing new guidelines to its leisure centre staff.

A spokesperson had initially told local paper the Nottingham Post that food and drink, including breast or bottle-feeding a baby, was against hygiene and health and safety rules.

But today a council spokeswoman said: ‘The rules are that there’s definitely no food and drink poolside, but breastfeeding is exempt from that rule. People can breastfeed anywhere.’

OK, in the interest of Health and Public safety of BMEWS viewers, CAUTION if you’re gonna open this link to the Daily Mail because, well .... ah .... the lady in question isn’t very pretty.  In fact, you may want to hold one hand over your eyes and peek but don’t look.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
