Finally, to suggest that a mother should leave the train and feed the baby discreetly at the MRT platform, then continue the journey is not only inconsiderate but also rude.Come on.
If you can breastfeed on the train, adults sure as hell should be allowed to eat on the train.
Its not about people not wanting to see your tits. Its doing the right thing at the right time.
If you want to eat, feed your baby, go somewhere else, not on an MRT train.
In order to allow breastfeeding mothers more privacy and discreet nursing, perhaps SMRT Corporation can consider designating special seats on the trains that are wider and more private (at the end of the cabin) which nursing mothers can use.If thats the case, can we have a special MRT carriage selling nasi lemak? Hungry Adults have rights too!
Its not that we are preventing anyone to breastfeed in the mall, in a park anywhere else where eating is not prohibited.
No. Want to breastfeed?
Simple, get off the train, and do it on the train platform. Finish up. Get on the train. How hard is that?
So how is breastfeeding on a train ok? While a grown-up, drinking a soda isn't?
