Wonder what you make of this one then?
A midwife has spoken out after she was told to stop breastfeeding in a public swimming pool because the lifeguard thought it was ‘offensive’. Sophie Howes was swimming with her eight-month-old daughter Connie at a leisure centre in Ashford, Kent, when the baby started to get restless. The 27-year-old mother of two sat on the steps of the learner pool and began to feed her daughter – only to be asked to move by the manager of the facility.
I think the Pool manager did exactly the right thing and Sophie Hownes should know better. It’s not that there is anything wrong per se with breast feeding BUT there is such a thing as discretion and location.
