Breastfeeding in Public Places

Canberra band Sparrow-Folk have taken a swing at those against public breastfeeding, in an hilarious music video titled ‘Ruin Your Day’ that quickly went viral.

The musical duo, Juliet Moody and Catherine Crowley challenge people to confront their negative feelings about public breastfeeding with lyrics like:

“Everyone knows that new mothers are exhibitionists. They’re taking every chance they get to ruin your day with tits. Pretending their little ones need some comfort or a feed, they’re taking every chance they get to ruin your day with tits.”

The Sydney Morning Herald  reported that Mother of four Moody had herself experienced discrimination while breastfeeding.

”I’ve had my fair share of comments under the breath or dirty looks, but, thankfully, I’ve never been kicked out or told to go and sit on the toilet seat,” Moody said.

”It frustrated me that it was such an issue … and it made me step back and say, ‘What is the real problem here?’ Then we thought that if we made it a bit of a joke that boobs are scary and frightening, it might make people think, ‘OK, what is my actual problem with it – if I see someone feeding, what am I worried is going to happen to me?”’

You can see more from the Glam-folk duo ‘Sparrow-Folk’ on their website, Facebook page or Youtube.

I have no doubt that I will be walking around singing or humming the chorus for weeks!

Have you experienced negative responses in regards to breastfeeding?



Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
