Protest over breast feeding in public
About 50 women are defending their right to breast feed in public at a protest outside the Channel Seven studios in Sydney's Martin Place. Dicko & Sarah discuss the controversy, have your say!
Stay up to date on breaking news with 2UE on Twitter
TV host David Koch has come outside of Channel Seven's studios to meet breast-feeding advocates, rallying against his comments in Sydney's Martin Place. He discusses his comments with 2UE's Paul Murray.
Are the fun police invading Australia Day? Monarchists and nutritionists are complaining about a Coat of Arms Burger. Tim Webster expresses his concerns that some people simply don't get the humour.
Eagles legend Glenn Frey is coming to the Sydney Opera House, backed up with the Sydney Symphony. Tim Webster speaks with the singer songwriter about his incredible career and what audiences can expect.
It is so disappointing to read other women's comments about discouraging breast feeding in public places. I am a mother of two young children, and am currently breast feeding my 4 month old baby. Discouraging women from feeding in public places puts pressure on women to either mix feed or ween their babies, or never leave the house. I am a well educated woman with a senior role in one of the top companies in Austraila, and am proud to be able to breast feed my baby, be it at home or in a public place. I have never been labled as trashy, and find David Koch's comments offensive. Who would forbid a mother with a young baby the opportunity to get out of the house, meet a friend for a coffee or take their older children to the park? All of these activities help a new mother to feel like she is still part of society, and helps to prevent post natal depression. It is in fact a right to breast feed your baby in public. Most babies, including mine, detest having a cloth over their head whilst they feed, so the view that you should 'cover up' or be discreet is just ridiculous. People who feel uncomfortable about a woman feeding her baby need to consider why they feel this way. Feeding your baby from the breast is the most natural and human experience. I will continue to proudly breast feed my baby in public, and will not submit her to a poor feed by placing a cloth over her head, or feed her in a public toilet!Nina Owczarek Saturday 26 January, 2013 - 9:22 AM
To BREASTFEEDING and PREGNANT MUMS TO BE....Let us claw back what used to be known as DECENCY, SELF RESPECT and A LITTLE BIT OF CLASS...Absolutely nothing wrong with breastfeeding in public AS LONG AS IT'S DONE IN A PROPER MANNER (COVER UP) with a light cloth.....Mothers to be, please DRESS APPROPRIATELY especially when well into pregnancy....I find it very distasteful to see some women displaying themselves in shopping centers in TIGHT and INAPPROPRIATE CLOTHING...in some cases, bare tummies...I FIND THIS ACT MOST OFFENSIVE AND VERY UNLADYLIKE...There is nothing nicer than to see a person who is due to give birth to a beautiful baby dressed in a loose dress etc..COME ON LADIES, LET'S GET BACK TO OLD FASHION AND A BIT OF DECORUM IN BOTH THESE CASES......I happen to be a mother and grandmother and PROUD OF IT....even though I may be classed as "OLD FASHIONED"...Manners should still be very important in this society.CARMEN Thursday 24 January, 2013 - 8:34 AM
David Koch's comments may seem quite reasonable on the surface. He supports women's right to breastfeed but says they should be discreet, out of respect for other people. Sadly, any criticism of breastfeeding mothers, especially from someone in the media, encourages those who are disgusted with seeing a woman breastfeed and feel they have a right to make a woman feel bad for doing what is natural. It also makes some women lose confidence in their ability to breastfeed on demand. Who wants to be given dirty looks or be confronted with direct negative comments.
I'd like to see woman made to feel comfortable where ever and however they choose to breastfeed. For those who think it's disgusting, move away from the mother. Don't expect her to move away from you!Jill Wednesday 23 January, 2013 - 2:50 PM
I am a woman and I agree with the comment that David Koch made. There are many people who are made to feel uncomfortable at the expense of some woman that consider it's their god given right to do as they wish. I am in my 40's and wonder where society's manners and respect for others has gone.Annette Monday 21 January, 2013 - 6:12 PM
I`m getting sick of people's rights in public...what about my rights to be able to walk around in public without worrying about some lady's breasts flopping around whilst feeding a baby?dazman Monday 21 January, 2013 - 6:10 PM
Koshi sure brought out the breast feeding nazis, breast feeding is natural and so is manners perhaps they should consider manners. This woman did this on purpose in seeking a fight for news and to push an agenda, she is nothing more than a muckraker.mick Monday 21 January, 2013 - 1:57 PM
