"Objective: To explore Chinese adults perceptions and attitudes toward breastfeeding in public places.
Materials and Methods: This was a web-based survey including 10 items on breastfeeding participants (N = 2,021) who were recruited by convenience sampling.
Results: Almost 95% believed that public places should have lactation rooms, 86% thought it was acceptable for mothers to breastfeed in this location, and 65% of respondents agreed that it was acceptable for mothers to breastfeed in public. Though 47% believed that viewing women breastfeeding in public was embarrassing, more than 80% felt that breastfeeding in public was appropriate and decent and did not violate social morality. More than 90% of respondents approved of policies supporting breastfeeding in public. Women, married people, those who had children, had some knowledge about breastfeeding, or had the experience of viewing women breastfeeding in public were more likely to hold positive perceptions and attitudes toward breastfeeding in public places.
Conclusions: Prior experience and knowledge about breastfeeding have a great influence on people's perceptions and attitudes toward breastfeeding in public, so education about breastfeeding is very important. Breastfeeding education should not only include the techniques of breastfeeding practices but also include information policies that support breastfeeding in public, including the importance of lactation rooms."
