    Default Dumb question but...

    I am not religious so am unsure of the 'rules' as such but I am going to my cousins wedding in a couple of weeks.

    DD is exclusively breastfed and it's going to be quite a long service which happens to fall right on the time I would usually feed DD.. So I am wondering am I allowed to BF in a church?

    Obviously if I have to I can express and feed her a bottle but would rather not if I don't have to.

    I just don't want to offend anyone so if anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks 😄

    Lol, I'm sure it'll be fine, maybe take a blanket for modesty's sake?

    I always use a blanket.. I'm not quite skilled enough at it yet and am paranoid of showing too much when DD stops to have a look around hahaha!

    I do every week.

    Some churches have mothers rooms in the back. If i don't use the mothers room will go up the back and i do use a blanket over the boob but not the baby IYKIM.

    What religion? If Christian I think you will be fine as long as you don't walk around with your b0obs hanging out. Other religions I'm not sure about.

    I've bf in both Catholic and Orthodox churches for weddings and christenings. I sat down the back so I had more room as I was more conscious of sculling water during the feed than the actual feeding! As above...I covered up more than I normally would in public.

    Absolutely Your right to breastfeed is legally protected - you are allowed to breastfeed anywhere that mums and babies are allowed to be. Many churches will have a mothers room/ breastfeeding room for privacy sake that are usually quite comfortable & you might prefer to use.
