    People can think what they like about breastfeeding, but they will quickly learn that they are not able to say anything discriminatory against a nursing mother with campaigns like this.

    If every one at the nurse in orders a coffee or tea or hot chocolate or what ever then the sales will be up for the day.

    Me, personally, I'd probably boycott. I have no problem with women having nurse-ins, but i don't honestly have enough faith in human kind to believe a person will change their opinion that breastfeeding is "digusting" because they see a lot of women doing it.

    I think in the case of sunrise it was appropriate, but this one, I'm not sure. I doubt even if the owner had known asking the bf mother to stop was illegal would have made a difference - clearly it disgusted her enough that her behaviour probably wouldn't have changed knowing that fact.

    I do have a lot of sympathy for the situation - I bf 3 children anywhere and everywhere and was never asked to stop or move - if I had I would have been mortified.

    So I probably would just avoid the cafe and tell anyone I knew to do so as well. Legal or not it is something that a lot of people seem to not like seeing (young, old).

    I just really think there's no such thing as bad publicity. Anything that gets a business name out in the open is good for them. It may turn away breastfeeding mum's, but sadly as we've seen by the amount of comments from anti-public-breastfeeding people on facebook posts, it will attract many people too.

    I 100% agree with MummaOJ. I think these anti-public-breastfeeding morons are dispicable people, and I will always feed my baby wherever and whenever I need to, and if someone piped up at a cafe and told me I was disgusting, well I'd let them know they were the disgusting one with their ridiculous views, and simply leave.

    Like religion, penis', gay rights and the environment. Everyone gets sick of these things being shoved down their throat.

    Honestly? I think neither have much of an impact on those who are against breastfeeding in public.

    A nurse-in will have those against it rolling their eyes, talking about breastnazis and how melodramatic and show-offish it all is. Making people think that bfers are attention seeking psychos who are too focused on what their tits do.

    A boycott will do nothing because only those who are seriously outraged will bother with it and it will likely only be temporary and won't harm business too much anyway.

    I think fining businesses heftily is perhaps the only way businesses will care and educate staff as to the laws...
