The owner of Little Amsterdam in Banbury has said she will offer free herbal and fruit teas to any breastfeeding mother who comes into their cafe on North Bar.

Ilja Harvey Andrews spoke to the Banbury Guardian yesterday (Wednesday) about her idea, after a story about a woman who claimed she had her baby taken away from her by a security guard while breastfeeding in Primark’s Leicester store.

Speaking on Little Amsterdam’s Facebook page, Mrs Harvey Andrews said: “I feel it’s important to let mums know they are very welcome to breastfeed here as it should be embraced.

“It’s the most natural thing we can do for our babies! In fact anyone who feeds their baby here, we make sure they have a drink.”
