@Shabnam Desai Yes, Shabnam. WHO has shared a post on LinkedIn on the occasion of World Breastfeeding Week, which very succinctly says that creating feeding-spaces in public as well as in office-spaces will serve as a great support to women. Very valid point put across by you!Reply

@Kanisha So true! A baby needs to be fed quite often, usually about every three hours and that could be easily about eight to ten times in twenty four hrs depending on how old the baby is. When a mother is outdoors with the baby, she should have privacy and every right to feed the hungry baby without feeling uncomfortable. Sometimes it could become difficult to find places where people are not watching. Our society is changing but people need to be more understanding. Fortunately, in some places like the malls and airports we see designated rooms/nursing area where a mother can feed the baby without disturbance. Nevertheless, society has to be more supportive.Reply
