A Mother Violated a Public Pool's "No Food or Drink" Policy... by Breastfeeding?

This bear likes hot tubs. Do babies?

A woman in England was holding her 9-month-old baby while she sat in the hot tub at a public pool (side note... is that safe?!) when she decided he was probably hungry. So she decided to breastfeed him, while still in the hot tub.

A lifeguard came over and told her she was violating their "no food or drink" policy, and the woman let him know that it's illegal in their country to forbid a woman from breastfeeding.

She posted a complaint on the pool's Facebook page and did get an apology, although the manager is saying that she did violate the rules. She's still planning a "nurse-in" for next month.
