I previously blogged about my experience of breastfeeding at church. If you didn't read it, I lost the nerve to feed in the pews as I was unsure of the response.
This morning the family went to a Saturday children's service. I was very impressed when another mum confidently fed her 3 month old boy under a muslin. This got me thinking again.
The vicar was having a discussion with me about making the church child friendly and mentioned providing bean bags to breastfeed on. So, with her having raised the issue herself I asked her what she thought about breastfeeding in church. She said 'Well, I think some in the congregation may be uncomfortable, but there are those that do it. Usually it's very discreet and only I notice. I am quite happy with it personally."
So there you go, thats the official word. Well, in my parish anyway.
