    I agree it's pretty disappointing and sad.

    I agree, I would have just gone to the porta loo pumped, dumped and gone about my day. She needs to get over herself.

    it being a festival, and the regular toilets being closed and portaloo's provided kinda changes my opinion to be honest.

    Portaloo's get pretty ferral during those, and it would not have been difficult for the winery to allow her to use the regular (cleaner and nicer) regular toilets to express.

    Its not discrimination - but certainly I can understand her being upset at the rude way she was treated.

    Why didn't she do it in the dunny? A hand basin is a bit... Unhygenic and exhibitionist...

    This stuff frustrates me no end. I don't feel that it is doing breastfeeding mothers any favours by making a song and dance over nothing! She could have chosen to pump & dump in the privacy of the toilets, she CHOSE to do it in public.

    She only had the option of a portaloo... Portaloos freak me out at the best of times.

    *shrugs*.... Maybe there was a queue for the loo and the discomfort had crossed the threshold into pain. I don't really know, I never questioned her on it. I'm sure she was just looking to take some of the engorgement away, not dump a full feed.

    Discrimination - No
    Could the venue have done more? - probably
    Were they obliged to legally? - No
    Could the mum have found somewhere not out in the cold - Yes but chose not to because of the privacy aspect.
    Photo on facebook - oh the irony...

    I wish people would stop screaming discrimination where no discrimination exists. The staff were rude and unhelpful but they did not discriminate against this mum.

    No way would I have pumped in a portaloo! Geez those things are awful.

    I think the staff could have worked a little bit harder to find her a discreet spot to sit while pumping. I can see exactly why she was upset.
