Breastfeeding mothers applaud Edgars stores for a positive response

A number of moms were infuriated by the way Tasneem Botha was treated by Edgars store in Cavendish Square last week and chose to organize a nurse-in at the store yesterday.

Botha was apparently mocked and eventually chased out of the shop for breastfeed her hungry child. Edcon CEO, Bernie Brooks has since apologised for the wrongful actions of the team member at the Edgars store.

Brooks said that they would ensure that all staff support guests in their stores if they wish to breastfeed their children.

Debbie Hawtrey gives feed-back of how yesterday’s nurse-in went on the Pippa Hudson Show.

Listen to the full conversation on The Pippa Hudson Show:

I would like to commend Edgars stores... they set-up chairs for moms and they also set-up coffee, tea, juice, water and snacks.

Debbie Hawtrey

There were about 30 to 35 parents with kids and media and we were there from 10 till about 11am.

Debbie Hawtrey

I hope that a couple of retailers who had a boo-boo like H&M that have been quiet slow to react to the virage of social media commentary...
