<div class="quote-block">Mums nominated McDonalds to receive the Booby Prize after many were told by its staff to stop breastfeeding or to use a toilet cubicle when feeding their baby in the restaurants.</div>

I wonder how many children have gotten sick from being breastfed in a scuzy McDonald's bathroom? Did somebody say Cholera?<br><br>
I'm lovin' it.<br><br>

Hmmmm...interesting. I'd love to see something comparable in the U.S. (Booby awards). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wideeyed.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":boobies:">

So exactly how would the Cholera get on the mother's nipples?

Actually, McDonald's bathrooms are usually fairly clean. When I'm on a road trip, I prefer to stop there to use the facilities, rather than at a gas station or a rest stop. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

Hee. Me too BPS. I get to pee and make a social commentary at the same time. I think I've stopped at the one on the Chicago Skyway so many times that they know who I am. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I'm wondering that, too. Not that I would ever breastfeed in a bathroom or pump milk in a bathroom. It would be much too uncomfortable for both the mother and the baby.<br><br><br><br>
If BFing and healthy eating go hand and hand, I really wonder at any mother who is breastfeeding and eating in any fast food establisment on a regular basis.<br><br><br><br>
Having breastfed my little darling, though, I can understand what it's like needing to feed a hungry baby in public and receiving the stares and such. Personally, I was totally uncomfortable with it and avoided it almost totally by supplementing with pumped breastmilk or formula when I was out with my baby. Or I would try to time it when I was in the car, so there was a bit more privacy. Women shouldn't have to take these measures or feel like they have to, though. That's just my personal comfort level.<br><br><br><br>
It would be great if more places offered a comfortable and clean space for breastfeeding mothers to feed their babies that has more privacy for those who want it. Babies 'R Us is a great example of this.
