"The only legitimate concern, in this case, is safety.  An adult carrying an infant in a pool is generally considered to be safe if standing or sitting.  Nursing doesn't change anything.  The risk of pathogens entering the water…"

"Am I the only one that finds this funny? Seriously? I guess I am just geting old, because my gut feeling is who cares if they feed their child in the pool. We have way too many regulations in the industry already. "

Liz Fiorey replied to Dave Putziger's discussion Breastfeeding In The Water
"Has anyone ever approached it as a "bodily fluid" situation, as opposed to a food/drink situation?  I'm just curious if that has helped keep them from doing it in the pool.  We have never had a problem with it at any of our…"

"We just had our 4th child (3 months old).  She has figured out how to quietly and discreetly feed them all every where we go.  There are plenty of ways of doing it.  My wife has a super big apron that covers the whole feeding. …"

"I'm pretty sure you will be surprised.  The person writing the statement for the CDC promised to try to have something out this week.  Unfortunately this has encountered a lot of strong opinions and politics.  I appreciate…"

"Be careful with this one!  About 8 years ago I tried the whole "no food or drink on deck" with a nursing mother and she was not happy.  I received angry phones calls and threats of a breastfeeding sit in at our facility. …"

"stephen is right it's pretty much allowable anywhere.  I would contact your health department and ask for their opinion.  Our state code allows for breastfeeding to take place anywhere in public, however it prohibits food or drink…"
