What do you think?
Personally I have no issue with mothers breastfeeding in public but I think, if it was me, it would certainly take some getting used before I felt comfortable doing it myself.
It would help normalise breastfeeding if children were made more aware of its benefits from an early age - particularly when it is such an age old and natural way to nourish a baby.
Professor Neena Modi, the Royal College's president, said children needed to understand more about breastfeeding, she said. The first stage was to expose very young children to mothers, aunties and family friends doing it so it became normal and natural, she said. Then, schools should teach children about, for example, the evidence that breastfeeding was good for the health and why it could be difficult or easy, she added. Both boys and girls should be in the lessons, as partners can do "an awful lot" to help by being supportive and involved, said Prof Modi. Currently PSHE is not a statutory part of schools' curriculums, although that will be consulted on this autumn. Schools which do teach the subject largely decide what they wish to teach.
