According to the Making it Up Blog, there's a plan underway in the UK to introduce new legislation early next year that would protect a mother's right to breastfeed her child in a public place. There's been some resistance from Public Health Minister, Caroline Flint because Flint feels that not enough moms have run into problems breastfeeding in public to warrant support for such a bill.
David Kidney, Labour MP for Stafford has asked that UK mothers write to Flint with their own stories to help drum up more support for the cause.

I have a better idea...why just send letters when you could ship her a dozen "My baby doesn't like to eat in the bathroom...do you" shirts?
At the very least, ship your letters off with a breastfeeding in public advocacy postage pal.
I'll also note that if there are any rallies planned and anyone is interested in "My baby doesn't like to eat in the bathroom...do you" buttons to drop me an email. I'll sell them at cost if they're going toward a rally or support function. I'd also be happy to put together and sell at cost buttons or stickers with any other slogans for a purpose like that.
