    Yes this is how it came across. I do agree they were awful to her.

    Haven't read any replies yet. The staff were probably a little rude but geesus the mother feels entitled doesn't she....

    I hope she didn't think she needed to pump and dump to remove alcohol from her milk because that's an old wives tale. At 4 months of age one wouldn't think she had to pump and dump to relieve pain?. You think she could go 8 hours without exploding? And if she couldn't perhaps she should have postponed the booze fest at the local winery, her bub is only 4 months old for crying out loud...

    She was not discriminated against, staff were rude to her, that is a completely different thing.

    I am a breastfeeder and the only expectation I had of anyone (private business or otherwise) facilitating me in my breastfeeding journey, was that they never tell me I can't breastfeed somewhere.

    Expecting private rooms to pump at a winery is a step too far IMO.

    But while we're at it, hows about we stop condemning this mother for taking a break. Im sure it was a big deal for her to leave her bub as it is for the vast majority of mums, and mums suffer enough judgement for god forbid having a time out from their bub. Lets not add to that.

    @VicPark according to you what length of time is acceptable post birth for time out without baby?

    For me it's whenever the mum feels like it.

    I was in a bar 5 days post birth. I can't imagine what you would have thought of me (and I wouldn't have cared!).

    I had a nice winery afternoon when DS was less than 4 months! He was there too but I did delegate responsibility to his grandparents who were over visiting.

    I had such a lovely time and really needed it!

    My oldest had his first sleep over at my mums at 8 weeks due to my severe PND. I feel no guilt whatsoever!

    I don't have a time frame. Although I will be honest and say I think 5 days after bub is rather soon to be out drinking (not saying you were drinking when you went out).

    Go out boozing at 5 days. Go out boozing at 4 months. Good on you, have one for me. But if you can't do it without your bub suffering/levying unrealistic expectations on the venue regarding expressing milk then yeah it is too soon for your situation.

    I agree. If she chooses to go to a winery for a bit of fun, that's her choice.

    But this made me think my comment could have been taken the wrong way.

    By this, I meant that I had a strict expressing routine and if I didn't express in public, I would be limited to my house and the hospital. I still had to consider whether somewhere was going to have an appropriate place for me, something she didn't seem to do.
