Mothers worry about what others will say against them as it won't feel comfortable breastfeeding the baby in public places.

In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he said " let the mothers feed their hungry babies in any situation as every baby has its own demand."
Though mothers have the option to bottle feed the baby, but breast milk is the best food for the baby. So I don't think there will be a problem doing this kind of pratice in public areas as the main concern here is the health benefits the baby can get from breastfeeding.
Like many mothers, I want the best food for my child and I don't care what others think if it seems breastfeeding embarrassing for the first time but the priority is the welfare of the baby.
So, is it illegal To Breastfeed in public in the Philippines? I don't think so. Breastfeeding moms have rights to attend the needs of their babies.
Hypocrisy and indecency do not apply under the Duterte administration. The president understands the welfare of both the nursing moms and the babies.
