Letters have been sent as well as multiple forwards or your blog page. We support you 100%, this situation is completely unacceptable!!
Unfortunatly, we still have a long road yet to travel to regain our rights! Breastfeading used to be basic, but with the advent of modern medicin, we’ve traveled a way back, being told that formula was better!! We cannot let this stop us from moving forward, and I see this as a chance to educate and change publc opinion. I’ve already written to Orchestra, and now will write to Complexe les Ailes. I’m glad we now can be aware of such conduct and can react promptly and accordingly. I also think that you should leak this to the medias. You have my full support! Keep on breastfeeding, it’s tha best thing to do!!
That is ridiculous and really upsets me! Wish there was something I could do but the site is in French and I don’t speak French (I live in the USA) so I couldn’t figure out how to do it. Good luck!
My wife had a very similar experience with our 2nd child; she felt and reacted the same way you did.
Now on our 4 breastfeed child and much more knowledge, I only hope that someone would say something. Here in Texas you can sue them and really hurt their business.
God Bless & great job on the Flash Mob Feeding!!

Oh my goodness, people! We are mammals. Breast feeding is why we are called mammals.
The people complaining about this were obviously improperly weaned.
You go, girl!
And feed the poor child . . . WHEREVER!
Nothing is more natural and beautiful when a mother nurses her child.
Bravo to all woman who fight against oppressive, backward, ignorant anti nursing behavior.
Push for changes in legislation and continue to feed your babies in malls, restaurants and all public places.
Militant nurses unite and take back the night!
This is ridiculous to raise this much fuss over something that is so natural. I don’t understand how women can get so upset about other women breastfeeding. You all have them, you’ve seen yours, you’ve seen others, so what. It’s just a baby eating. What offends me more is the language today people use in public or young adults wearing their pants below their butts.
Hey — I’m a dad with 3 young kids… babies should be able to be fed however, whenever, and wherever they need to be fed. I’m sorry you had trouble. Some people are ignorant.
Wow is all I can say. My initial reaction to this was SHOCK, and then mouth agape. I am an African and have never heard of anything or anyone angry at a mother feeding an infant, except in the “developed world”. Should a child be allowed to starve because of “I don’t know what??? – trying to act proper or what? What is the proper thing to do?” I am a mother of 3 wonderful children and were all breastfed. I fed them anywhere and anytime, there was no discrimination against babies who are hungry – it was just the natural thing to do, and there is nothing obscene about breastfeeding a child. There is no shame about being natural – God created us the way we are, if He felt like the lady in the store, then He would not have put babies food on our chest. There is beauty in and about breastfeeding – the act, the posture, the love – mother to child, etc, so much I cannot illustrated here. If I have more children, I will breastfeed him/her anywhere. Thanks for your courage in coming out with this, so many may have suffered in silence. You should sue the company for all the emotional distress, and start up a non-profit to educate and enlighten people on breastfeeding/mother to child relationship through breastfeeding.
