The first thing that comes to our mind when we say ‘Breastfeeding’ is the sacrifice of a mother for her child. Breastfeeding is also known as nursing where babies and small children are fed milk from a mother’s breast. Why do we see breastfeeding as a sacrifice? It is because to breastfeed one a mom has to not only sacrifice her time but also go through the pain and certain difficulties that may encounter her during her breastfeeding period. There is this saying tells us that breastfeeding is more to a mother’s determination compared to the production of milk. Although, breastfeed is something so essential, there is still an issue on seeing women breastfeed in public. T herefore, the were several researches carried out in overseas.
The main objective of all these five articles will be to study the reaction of public on seeing a mother to breastfeed her child in public. From the first article, this study was mainly carried out to know the opinions of several shopping centres and restaurants managers if they see women breastfeed in their shopping centres and restaurants. First, those restaurants and shopping centres managers were contacted via telephone to check their availability to fix an appointment for the interview to be carried out. This was to avoid troublesome.
The interview was carried out by asking four different questions which consists of the policy of the managers if women breastfeed at their place and what will they do if breastfeeding was carried out without their permission? Next, they were asked where a mother would need to breastfeed like if there’s only several areas arranged for a mother to breastfeed their babies and how will they react if they receive complains from other customers seeing a woman breastfeeding.
From this interview they found out that almost a quarter of restaurant managers approve women to breastfeed in public. Besides that, there were a few managers that approved it because they say they can’t simply ask a mother to stop breastfeeding as they have no legal rights and by doing so it can lead to several legal problems. Meanwhile, almost half of all shopping centre managers says that they are fine in women breastfeeding anywhere. They claim that they don’t really know how to react if there are any complain from other customers because so far they never had receive even one. One of them did say that he does not wants to force women to breastfeed in toilet as it may be inappropriate.
The second article was mainly focused on the opinions of adults at Ottawa, Ontario. While, with the negative attitudes they examined several associations. The interesting fact in Ottawa is they this “Ontario Human Rights Code” where no one has the rights to stop a mother from feeding her baby no matter wherever it is. Despite, there are still negative perceptions from the public when they see a mother breastfeeding. This causes an uneasiness for mothers to continue breastfeeding their baby.
Two new cool methods was used to carry out this research. One of it is via a population health survey done through telephone. They dial numbers of certain households and conducted the interview in two different language which was French and English. Next one they spread questionnaire to the public which consists of questions asking their reaction on seeing a mother breastfeed in places like restaurants and shopping malls. Most of their responses comes with acceptable only if. Some of the ifs were like is she covers it, if she’s flaunting it and also some says it depends like which shopping mall or which restaurant it happens and are they allowed to do so?
From this research, they found out that almost 75% accept a mother to breastfeed in public. However most of them agreed yet there were a number of people that shows less support to this issue. These people are from the category of adults with less or no children at home. Apart from it, in New York adults with children at home seems to be more fragile to breastfeed in public. Besides that, people with poor education also most likely to disagree regarding this matter.
