Warrington mums out in force to protest at Sports Direct

Warrington Guardian: Warrington mums out in force to protest at Sports Direct Warrington mums out in force to protest at Sports Direct

WARRINGTON mums turned out in force to breastfeed their youngsters outside Sports Direct as part of a national protest on Friday.

The retail giant came under fire after reportedly asking a breastfeeding mum to leave the Nottingham branch.

More than 30 mums signed up for the ‘Free to feed nurse-in’ outside the Old Market Place store in support of the mum alongside hundreds of others across the country.

Mum-of-two Elaine Parr to Adam, aged two and Luke, aged 18 months, said everyone was really pleased to be a part of the campaign.

She added: “We wanted to raise awareness breastfeeding in public is a totally normal thing to do and we had a few people asking us about why we were there.

“The women who asked were generally all for it and from a personal point of view none of us have gone through the same thing as the Nottingham lady.”

Elaine, who lives in Golborne, said they are keen to spread the message it is unlawful for a business to discriminate against a woman because she is breastfeeding a child and shops should not ask breastfeeding women to leave after a series of stories in the national press in the last six months.

The 34-year-old added: “There was a lady who was asked to stop breastfeeding her baby at a leisure centre before the Sports Direct story and I think everyone at the protest felt a bit disillusioned and that it wasn’t right for a big, established shop to be discriminating against mums.

“We’re hoping it stops here and shops become aware that if somebody isn’t comfortable and asks a woman to stop they need to know mums are legally allowed to do it.

“Unfortunately I think it will be a while before we get to that point but events like this do help explain to people what the law is.”

Sports Direct did not wish to comment.

Force feeding babies as part of a protest isn't very clever. You would have had more support if you took your free deep fat fryers and shared some chips out.

1) where do you get the notion that here was any force-feeiing

2) Deep fat fryers - are you indicating that all the ladies are major eaters of chips? Bizarre

It's called indirect sex discrimination - where a rule applies to everyone but has a worse effect on one gender more than another.

Breast feeding is perfectly natural. Clearly some people have problems separating this act of nurturing from sexuality. Perhaps some had developmental problems at the oral stage of their own childhood or have been confused by oedipal yearnings. I am sure self-help books and counselling is available for their "mummy issues" or whatever else ails them.

The purpose of this demonstration wasn't to 'force feed' our children and it's wasn't to reopen the breast feeding is 'disgusting' can of worms.

If you have ever breastfed or seen a baby breastfeed you would know that you can not force a child to latch-on and feed, I would suggest you read up on the subject before commenting in future.

It's worth remembering that a bottle has a teet - that's an ARTIFICIAL nipple so when a real nipple is available it's unlikely a baby would choose plastic over flesh.

As for the comment men are also banned from breast feeding in there store - thanks for that I did need a good laugh this morning and would love to see then try to stop a man if they could feed. Incidentally men can with the use of an SNS system.

Frankly everyone is entitled to their opinion. What they are not entitled to do is to ask a breast feeding women to stop and leave a premesis - it's illegal to do so.

Babies get hungry (usually at the most in opportune times), mummies have milk - get over it .

A woman's breasts has been used for feeding their young, since we evolved into mammals (hundreds of thousands of years ago) way before we even became homo-sapiens, over time the males of our species learned to see breasts as something sexual, not because of what they are, (and they are good to play with), but because they could ensure the health of any offspring, again to ensure the existence of our species. The problem we have now is that a lot of people can't differentiate between the breasts that can be played with and the breasts that have evolved to do a specific job, so heres a little tip. If you see a woman with her breasts out for no reason, then your likely to be stood on bridge street at 3am, if you see a breast with a baby attached then it's just a functional part of the body doing it's job, how can there be anything wrong with that? or is evolution wrong?

Cheap mower, would you be shopping for milk for your tea by any chance? Or do you posses double standards? Either way I have never seen a women with no top on at all breast feeding a child usually they are quite discreet and if I did catch a glimpse of a boob then lucky me as far as I am concerned. I am sure you would see much worse in the Daily Star or The Sun newspapers on page 3 and many other pages for that matter.

This is more about consideration for other people than anything else. Breast feeding has been going on for all time and the majority of mothers manage it without anyone even knowing it is happening when in public. If done discreetly no-one is going to be any the wiser. Some shop staff clearly need better training in offering help to customers but also, some mothers seem to think their rights are above the rights of others to lead their own lives without having breast feeding thrust upon them.

Having had a baby myself I understand the problems faced, but there are alternative solutions without putting yourself on public display.

1) Who said anything about breast feeding while walking about?

2) Their benefit/work status is both not mentioned and not relevant.

If you have ever breastfed or seen a baby breastfeed you would know that you can not force a child to latch-on and feed, I would suggest you read up on the subject before commenting in future.

It's worth remembering that a bottle has a teet - that's an ARTIFICIAL nipple so when a real nipple is available it's unlikely a baby would choose plastic over flesh.

As for the comment men are also banned from breast feeding in there store - thanks for that I did need a good laugh this morning and would love to see then try to stop a man if they could feed. Incidentally men can with the use of an SNS system.

Frankly everyone is entitled to their opinion. What they are not entitled to do is to ask a breast feeding women to stop and leave a premesis - it's illegal to do so.

Babies get hungry (usually at the most in opportune times), mummies have milk - get over it .

Clearly Tara was bottle fed, Tarasmum is probably an A cup which would explain a lot.
I can't quite believe any bloke could find anything remotely sexy in a breastfeeding mother, as for the comment about tara being an a cup are you assuming she would be unable to breastfeed? Have you seen how much breasts swell after birth! Grow up. Being a female i can totally understand everybody's opinions, it is perfectly natural to breastfeed, there should be more places to do it discreetly. As for it being done in public, some women don't have alot of choice, but most do it discreetly, if they were sat there with their tops off there might be an issue.

I think it shows a total lack of planning on the side of the mothers. Babies need feeding, but you know roughly when they need feeding so the mothers should be able to plan around this and feed the child away from the public eye. . I don't want to see a 'nursing' mother and if I had a business I would also ask them to leave. I am sick of paretns thinking they can do wha they want, and don't consider anyone else views.

With people like you around it is just as well that it would be illegal for a business owner to act in such an anti-social and high-handed manner - breast-feeding mothers are offered specific protection under equality legislation.

Why should they restrict their movements just because you and others have issues and can only see the human body in sexual terms. Most people are not offended by what is a natural, and beautiful act of nurturing.

You say you are ".. sick of paretns thinking they can do wha they want,.." (sic) . In your mind's eye what is that - do you imagine them waving their zeppelin sized breasts - each woman with 2 ,3 or more pairs in your face or spraying you with their breast milk?

Get over it.

Interesting that you put the word "nursing" in quote marks. Why?

Women are clearly using breastfeeding in public as an excuse to not go to the public bathrooms and breastfeeding them there because they are lazy. People can say it's natural, but so is urinating, but it's unacceptable to urinate in the open public. Double standards everywhere.

To compare feeding a child with urination is beyond contempt.

To think that a mother should have to squat on a WC even more so.

It may surprise you in your ivory tower that the Public Bathrooms (Within the Bath Street Baths Complex) in Warrington closed in the 1980s and there are none available to these breast-feeding Mothers, so your uninformed suggestion is useless. Breast feeding takes place in many public areas of warrington and always with considered and intentional discretion there clearly not a problem for the majority of the population and certainly not against the law both civil and common. As for urinating in public then it is a public health matter, disgusting and yes, it is against the law with one exception and that's for a driver who urinates on the rear nearside wheel of his cart.

You should both try eating your meals in a public toilet in order to experience the the action you have suggested for pre-weaned babies. Most of us don't condone child abuse in suggestions such as yours .
