Perhaps a nurse in at the other cafes nearby, all friendly and welcoming. Give those other businesses a chance to take a stand for breastfeeding women and have a bumper sale day while they're at it. Maybe fun t-shirts for staff with boobs on and pink cookies with nipples

I still think education would have been a more sensible approach - some people genuinely do not know that it is a law protected right to breastfeed in public. Some people do find it disgusting. Honestly I think approaching the business and person in question, with fact sheets and giving them some handouts and a little education to pass onto their staff members, would have had a greater impact. Perhaps they could get ABA stickers on their windows so people know that they are educated regarding the law, it may even encourage business as it shows they are anti discrimination? One of my childless sisters is horrified by women who breastfeed in public, she said she does feel uncomfortable when I breastfeed in front of her, and she was not aware it was protected by law - she has 3 university degrees but has never needed this information or anything to do with breastfeeding - I have educated her and now she has a different view.

I thought that it was just an employee/manager as none of the articles I read mentioned the fact that it was actually the cafe OWNER. That's definitely a different story.

And MummaOJ, information was handed out and we also walked around and handed the leaflets out to other cafes and restaurants in the area.

Well done to all the ladies who took part in the boob in.
I can't understand those who say why bother, we already have the legal right to BF wherever, there's no point shoving a penis down anyone's throat.
Just because something's legal it doesn't mean it's accepted. And until its more widely accepted BF rates won't improve.
- do the naysayers think African Americans suddenly had perfect lives when the civil rights ACT was passed in 1964? It took generations of continued social vigilance and protest for the changes to have real impact.
To the lazy apathists out there (yes I think I made that word up): your daughters/daughters in law/grand daughters will likely reap the benefit of the efforts of the ladies that took part in todays boob-in.
