In the UK, it's illegal for anyone to discriminate against a breastfeeding mother - which means nursing mums are protected in public places such as parks, sports and leisure facilities, public buildings, public transport, shops, restaurants, hospitals, cinemas, petrol stations, theatres and hotels.

Despite this, however, many mums have been asked to 'cover up' when breastfeeding in public - and a woman recently revealed that she was asked to place a large napkin over her seven-month-old daughter's head in Claridge's restaurant as she was feeding her.

Ukip leader Nigel Farage also became embroiled in the row after he suggested that mothers could 'sit in the corner' in restaurants to avoid offending people - and he insisted it was 'not too difficult' to feed a child in a way that was 'not openly ostentatious'.

But there are still some places where breastfeeding mothers can find support.

And this British café, located in the South of England, has taken the idea of acceptance to a whole new level.

The chalkboard hanging outside the door reads:

B_reastfeeding mums,_

Pop in and have a free cup of tea if you need a pit stop…

No need to eat, no need to ask - please relax

The original signpost, shared on Facebook via Refresh Me, even comes complete with a hurried smiley - putting nursing mothers instantly at ease.

It's nice to see that some people are happy to support breastfeeding mums, isn't it?
