HONG KONG — Around 100 breastfeeding moms slipped on a Hong Kong train station this weekend feeding their babies in unison to protest discrimination against breastfeeding in public.

The flash mob, organised by the breastfeeding care group MamaMilk Baby Alliance, occurred on Saturday at Tai Wai station.

The group says breastfeeding moms were being discriminated against in Hong Kong for feeding their babies in public, and are calling on the government to introduce legislation to combat the intolerance.

A spokesperson for the group told the South China Morning Post that women in shopping malls, for example, are often asked to feed their babies in toilets. She added that most malls in Hong Kong do not have any dedicated breastfeeding facilities.

This was the fourth year the group have organized such an event to raise awareness of the importance of breastfeeding.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that children are exclusively breastfed for the first six months of their lives.

Only 2.3 percent of Hong Kong babies are breastfed exclusively until this stage, according to UNICEF’s Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative, but the breastfeeding rate is increasing.
