In honour of some astonishing blunders I'm pleased to announce the Bring the Baby Bloopers.
The Bloopers are awarded to companies or individuals who have, through ignorance of the law, failings in staff training, lack of consideration for parents with babies or simply just bigoted personal opinion, made a big bloop.
And so without further ado and in no particular order, the awards for the Bring the Baby Bloopers go to:
The Lakeside Inn, Felgate, Jarrow, South Tyneside. Awarded for asking a mum to stop breastfeeding her baby in the restaurant.
The Science Museum, London. Awarded because a security guard suggested to a mum breastfeeding her baby in a public area that she use the family room.
Drayton Manor Hotel in Staffordshire for telling a mum to change her child on the toilet floor.
The Prince Regent Swimming Complex in Brighton for asking a mum to stop breastfeeding her baby by the poolside.
