    It is illegal.

    They cannot stop you so DON'T BE STOPPED. Go in there tomorrow and sit your breastrfeeding a r s e down in the room and lob it out.

    If you are approached and told to stop you say "make me".

    And I am so happy you are getting it in writing to report them.

    This makes me feel ill.
    I would be pulling my child out of there ASAP and making a formal complaint. They can NOT do that to you, as others have said - ILLEGAL!!

    I'd be removing my child tbh. it sounds really dodgy. 10 minute visits?! what have they got to hide? and it is illegal to ask you to leave to breast feed.

    report them to your states childcare authority -

    I would be removing my child at once. No way I would allow my child to stay in a child care that clearly doesn't know or abide by the regulations

She has advised me that maybe I would like to feed her in the car in the carpark and bring her back in afterwards. It was also suggested that I could express my milk and give it to her in a bottle. The reason I was given for this new rule is that other breastfeeding mothers have also approached her about breastfeeding their children in the centre and that it would all be just too disruptive to the carers and classroom! Not sure where to go with this??? I am disgusted and furious about it all.
    Havnt read the rest of the responses but they can't tell you that! I'm an early childhood teacher and know we must be totally accepting of bf mums, when I returned to work I continued to bf my dd1 and will do the same with dd2 during my breaks.

    It's against quality care

    This ^^ it's not always easy with limited places, but I would move her ASAP. If they don't support her very basic need of being fed in front of others, then how is she being treated when you aren't there?

    It's illegal and the director would well know that. I also fear without an open door policy, what they have to hide. This would make me very nervous & uncomfortable leaving my LO with them TBH. It's one thing to say ignore them and continue feeding her inside, but what happens when parents aren't there??

    Wow feeling completely outraged after reading this!!! Childcare centre's (whom of course are looking after the next generation) should be one of the major places encouraging bf most of all and helping to "normalise" it!!! I feel terrible that this lady has made you feel like you have OP Let us know how you go with it all.
