DO NOTE THAT EACH PICNIC HAS ITS OWN DATE!
People wanted flexibility. So do check the DATE of your local one. :-)
Breastfeeding Picnics are first and foremost about turning up, having fun with other parents, and going home. During this fun time, breastfeeding will take place as a normal part of human activity. That's actually the most important bit. Breastfeeding in public is about hungry babies, requiring milk. That's all. Hungry babies get milk. Simples!
In Scotland, it is that simple. There is a law protecting any caregiver, giving any milk, to a child anywhere the child has a right to be. The caregiver can not be threatened or asked to stop the feed. To do so, is an offence, liable to a hefty fine.
In England and Wales, there is no such protection. For a detailed understanding of this, read the posts here with the Breastfeeding Picnic tag, and the Equalities Act tag.
Breastfeeding Picnics are run by mothers, for mothers. All parents welcome. All mothers, fathers, grans and grandads. All babies, all feeding methods. Hungry babies need milk: don't matter if it's from breast or bottle, Mama or Otherwise. Hungry babies get fed. End of.
All are run by volunteers, all take control of their own event. There is no uber organisation. Just Mums. :-)
Go along, show your support, feed your babies. And invite your local MP too!
