    Never know, some bosses might be fine with their workers doing this on rare occasions.
    In the article the mother said:
    - the hairdresser walked away without a word as she began feeding her daughter
    - "the original hairdresser then came up to me to explain that whilst I was breastfeeding she couldn't cut my hair."

    Assuming the mother isn't lying, it doesnt sounds like the hairdresser stopped cutting out of compassion...
    ?

    I have to say if a client of mine insisted I continue cutting/foiling/ bleached while they bottle our breast feed their child in their arms I would definitely refuse.
    For people say the stylist had no right to stop cutting, you have no idea what your talking about. It *is* a safety issue! We have the right to pause the service if we aren't comfortable continuing. We are also humans who have the right to be comfortable while doing our jobs.
    And for the record I've never dropped my scissors, but I've dropped tint brushes before, and I (and everyone I work with) drop their Combs several times a day. It happens.

    I would have stopped too, and I think it was more professional that they did tbh. They didn't say, "OMG STOP FEEDING!" they just stopped until she had. So what?

    Just because you pop out a kid doesn't mean you become a Queen. Seriously - feed your kid BEFORE your appointment, but if you can't, then accept that they might not want to risk getting themselves in trouble by doing something while you're feeding.

    I don't agree with tinting while holding a baby due to bub breathing in chemicals. But I can't understand how a hairdresser could have difficulty cutting hair when a mother is quietly feeding her baby. Happy for this to be explained to me though. It's just that I've never had a hairdresser slip up and cut me using her scissors in all the time I've been getting my hair done. Perhaps I've had the luck of good hairdressers?

    I prefer to get my hair cut without all my kids, but I did once take my baby son, I had just fed him and put him down to sleep and quickly checked this place could squeeze me in, and they could!!! So they washed my hair- all good, then about 5 mins into the cut he started screaming. I tried the dummy etc to no avail, so I just chucked him on the boob and I'm sure everyone else in the salon was relieved they didn't have to listen to a screaming baby for the rest of their appointment. The hairdresser didnt bat an eyelid and I didn't even think twice about it. I can't remember if I risked suffocating and overheating him under the cape thing, or if I risked 'hair inhalation' and scissor puncture in top of it. Hmmmm...

    i think it would be polite for them to offer (or insist if it truly made them uncomfortable) to give me a few mins to feed the child. But to just walk off? I think it's rude and unprofessional. And now they are trying to save their a$$ by making up stories. I can't say I'd bother going to the media over it though.

    So your baby survived being breastfed while you had a haircut?

    Not only would it be a health & safety issue, she would have ended up with a wonky haircut due to not having her body and shoulders square.

    I think the hairdresser could have worded it better, but it would be a bigger issue to have to correct a haircut or injure the baby than to stop for a few minutes.

    Just my 2 cents

    what if the hair dresser continued cutting and the baby had a comb or a pair of scissors or a heap of hair clippings fall on its face? Sure there should have been more communication but the mother could just have easily gone to the media citing health and safety regulations and how the hair dresser should have stopped.

    if you want to bf at a cafe, go ahead. A restaurant, why not! The shops, sure go for it. The pools, heck do it sitting on the pool ledge. I don't care. Seriously, I don't, not as long as common sense is used. But the hair dresser? Apart from being awkward for the customer and the hair dresser, a baby shouldn't have to have hair falling on their face or in their eyes as they are put under the cape.

    I'd guess they paused whole putting baby under the cape. I've never, ever had a hairdresser drop scissors on me while giving me a haircut either,FTR.
