"If you want to breastfeed your baby, pass without asking permission": a great initiative to support breastfeeding worthy of imitation

A couple of years ago we echoed this wonderful initiative from a bar in Argüello, Córdoba, Argentina, which is still in force and deserves to be shared and imitated, since unfortunately mothers and their nursing babies are not welcome in all places.

Rojas Resto Bar invites mothers to breastfeed their babies without asking for permission . And not only that, but they also treat them to a free tea or juice while they feed their babies. An example of empathy and generosity that I wish all sites would take note of.

On January 5 they have uploaded a photo of their now famous poster to their Facebook profile in which we can read:

“Mom: if you want to breastfeed your baby … come in without asking permission and ask for a free tea or juice (you don’t need to buy anything)”

The response has been overwhelming. Both customers and people who want to know the site give their congratulations and the publication has been shared more than three thousand times.

Breastfeeding is a human right for mothers and babies recognized by the UN, and it is essential that the whole of society is committed to promoting and facilitating it when and where it is needed.

The teat has no schedules and babies can claim food or contact at any time. When we are on the street, it is appreciated to find friendly places like this bar in Córdoba to be able to breastfeed our babies quietly, so we congratulate them for this beautiful gesture towards nursing mothers and their children.

This should be the norm in all restaurants, bars, shopping centers and public places, because a baby has the right to be fed regardless of where it is , and the mother also has the right to breastfeed in public without qualms or disapproving looks.

Breastfeeding in children older than one year: breastfeeding from 12 months is not spoiling

The first thing that caused me doubt when writing the post was the title. I have often heard the terms prolonged breastfeeding to refer to children older than 12 months who are still nursing. Or breastfeeding in older children. And yet, I get the impression that these terms refer to something that is not normal, as if breastfeeding had to have a short duration or children beyond the age of 2 years were considered too old to breastfeed.

My baby is very distracted while breastfeeding: why it happens and how to get...

During the first weeks of life, breastfed babies often only want to be at their mother's breast. The shots are long (practically one with another), the baby's movements are slow and calm, and the exchange of glances between mother and child is constant.

Mixed breastfeeding in twins: how to organize to feed two babies

The WHO recommends that babies under six months be exclusively breastfed. Mothers who have twins or fraternal twins are capable of producing milk for both of them, since we know that the greater the stimulation, the greater the production of milk; women in these cases can produce... up to 2 liters of milk a day!

Does your baby "tune in" to the nipple while nursing? Why does it do...

Does your baby play and touch the nipple that is free while he is sucking on the other one? This is a behavior popularly known as "tuning" (the child moves the nipple as if tuning a radio), and although it is completely normal and natural, it can be uncomfortable for some mothers.
