No means no!

Have we all just become too "Westernised" for our own good? Regardless of this mom's baby being lactose intolerant and her telling the worker she is not allowed to breastfeed her baby, is she overreacting? Is she right in saying breastfeeding someone else's child is "nasty"? Share your opinion and experience by emailing and we may publish your story.
