Airline’s breastfeeding bungle
Julia Medew; 30/9/09
A Melbourne mother says she was left in tears after a Tiger Airways flight attendant repeatedly asked her to hide her breastfeeding baby from other passengers on a flight earlier this month. Kathryn Ward said she was feeding her three-month-old son, James, on a flight between the Gold Coast and Melbourne when a crew member asked her if she had a blanket to cover him. ”I didn’t say anything because at the same time she asked me she saw a padded insert underneath him and put it on top of him without asking my permission,” Mrs Ward said.
