I don't think a business should have to have a special area for mums to go and pump, feed, or do handstands.. It would be 'nice' if they could accommodate her, but, yeah, shouldn't be necessary. Festivals are porta loo land, she really should've looked into it better. I was a bf mum back in 2002 at the m-one festival and hand expressed, standing up in the loo.. A porta loo actually. Not my finest moment but taking a pump there never crossed my mind. You do what you have to do.
The staff were just plain rude and stupid though. The was no need to make a joke about it, hopefully they do better next time.

Rikki Forrest is a troublemaker. She's done this sort of thing before. She loves the attention, people and unfortunately she's all too aware of what gets mileage and what doesn't. Spare a thought for the staff who were caught on the hop, unfairly and inaccurately maligned and were very, very upset at the aftermath which this woman wrought on this small business. I'm all for breastfeeding but Ms Forrest's selfish actions put us all back a century and did nothing at all for the breastfeeding movement.

I am truly surprised at the reaction to my post given some of the things said in here. In comparison, I thought mine rather tame and interestingly enough, people are asking for evidence whereas other comments were left go. How many standards are there in here exactly? I'm new so I need to know for future reference...lol
Yes, I was there. Yes, I do know the person in question. Yes, she has pulled attention seeking stunts like this before. Yes, I do know the winery in question and the lovely staff who are employed there. I also know that what Rikki was reported to have been told was not accurate. This is something that has also been raised in other reports of this incident.
I live in the Fleurieu and it's a very small place. And yes, this story has been reported widely. Just because you don't read other publications such as the Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian and online blogs such as Mamamia et al, doesn't mean people aren't talking (and *****ing, attacking, whinging) about it. They are and it's impacted adversely on the business. A business that good people have worked very hard to keep going.
And no, I don't think I'm being dramatic at all. I happen to care very deeply what happens in my own backyard and I'm a little tired of people using parenting issues to bolster their own selfish "breastfeeding", "equal opportunity" agenda.
