收下以下查詢:

I will be going to HK for vacation in April with my 4-month old son. I would like to know if there's any law in HK to protect breastfeeding mothers. Can I nurse my son in the public? Restaurants? Shopping malls? Will I be discriminated or asked to leave if I nurse my son in those places? Are there fully equipped nursing rooms available in the malls? Please provide me with some information so that I can better prepare for my trip. Thank you for your help.

In general, most people in Hong Kong know breastmilk is the best food for baby and thus they seldom prohibit you from breastfeeding in public places. Though you may find that there are not so many HK mothers breastfeed their babies in public places, breastfeeding is still an acceptable way in Hong Kong. However, some people who don't understand breastfeeding much, they may be interested in looking at you while you are breastfeeding. In this case, if you feel uncomfortable about this, you may use baby sling or clothes to cover your breast a bit, or go to shopping malls where baby care facility is available. If anyone requests you to go to restroom for breastfeeding, simply just say "No" and ask him or her if he or she would go to have meal in toilet.

Do enjoy your trip in Hong Kong with your familiy and share your breastfeeding experience in Hong Kong with us!

PS: Unfortunately there is no law to protect breastfeeding mothers in Hong Kong. However, our Association is trying our best to push our government to build a breastfeeding friendly environment for us.

I’m in the lucky category of never having been criticized or shamed for breastfeeding in public, and I used to do it a lot.

Here are two lists of nursing room in HK, they are in Chinese though, most major shopping mall would provide a small nursing room: http://www.breastfeeding.org.hk/book/13

1) 有關香港育嬰室,可看本網站"育嬰室清單"

2) 香港是否尊重哺乳文化這話題,我們都常談論.說支持的是不少的,但真要他們以行動支持,卻又不是這麼回事了.

3) 我自己試過在餐廳,酒樓,巴士上餵過人奶,都沒有人趕過.不過,我亦沒有大膽得在眾目睽睽下,肆無忌憚的拉開衣衫就餵.
