Old conversation: Breastfeeding in public. New conversation: Breastfeeding at work, in public.
The co-owner of a Winnipeg donut shop is receiving support – and condemnation – in an online Zomato (formerly urbanspoon) review, criticizing her for breastfeeding behind the work counter.
Meghan Zahari told Buzzfeed Canada, while she does breastfeed her daughter in seating reserved for customers, she has never breastfed behind the counter.
The customer, “Lord Igor,” has defended his initial comment and gone on to say, “Behind the counter at an eating establishment breast feeding a child, without a privacy cover, is not only unprofessional, it is non hygienic.”
So if you are working and have a hungry baby, is it okay to feed him or her? Bigger question: Is it okay to take a baby to work? Biggest question: If you own a business and someone doesn’t like how you manage it, is it okay for them to choose to go to another establishment?

P.S. And when making an online review, you should note that companies in America have sued commenters who have given negative reviews. Should we do support that in Canada?
