Breastfeeding in Public : Breastfeeding Legal Rights

Breastfeeding in public places to become mothers' legal right
Women will soon be able to breastfeed in any public place safe in the knowledge it’s their legal right.
In news which will be a welcome relief to any mother who’s ever been made to feel uncomfortable when breastfeeding outside their home, changes to The Equality Bill will mean no one can stop women breastfeeding babies up to six-months-old, wherever they might be.
As the law currently stands, women who breastfeed in bars and restaurants could, legally, be charged under public order or indecency legislation.
However, with Britain holding the unwelcome lowest breastfeeding rate in Europe, MPs are eager to do anything they can to make it easier for mothers to breastfeed their babies.
‘Final decisions have yet to be made but the Government is keen to give new mothers complete confidence to breastfeed while going about their normal business, for example while on the bus or in a café,’ a spokesperson for the Cabinet Office told reporters.
