Café encourages breastfeeding in public

Source: RefreshMe

A café in England recently posted this sign outside and encouraged breastfeeding mothers to stop by if they needed a moment to feed their baby.

The sign reads: "Breastfeeding Mums - Pop in and have a free cup of tea if you need a pit stop... No need to eat, no need to ask - please relax. :)"

Being a breastfeeding mom means you're generally more hungry and thirsty than usual so having a place to stop and look after yourself and breastfeed your baby at the same time would be a huge relief. Yes, you could stop and do that anywhere but unfortunately you run the risk of being harassed like this mom did when she was called a slut for breastfeeding in public.

Do you think South Africa could do with more restaurants and café's with an attitude like this? Would that make you more inclined to breastfeed in public? Vote and comment below!
