Ailidh Camp­bell of Oban Bumps, Ba­bies and Be­yond said: ‘It is your right to breast­feed in pub­lic, but if places are breast­feed­ing-friendly then they are show­ing mums they will be made to feel wel­come and if any­one com­plains, it is the com­plain­ing cus­tomer who is of­fered al­ter­na­tive seat­ing.’
