Mother-of-two Katy Scrigna was nursing her seven-week-old daughter in a U.K. Ikea when she was asked by a security guard to relocate to the store's "designated breastfeeding area."
Security informed her they'd received a customer complaint and that she'd be more comfortable nursing in the designated space for breastfeeding.
Scrigna took her frustration to Facebook, and as a resut a local media source contacted Ikea to inquire about the incident. Ikea's response is that its staff acted wrongly and they insist that nursing mothers are allowed to breastfeed wherever they please in their store.

Over 7000+ nursing mothers room locations (lactation rooms to breastfeed and breastpump) in the United States, US Territories, Canada, The UK, Singapore, Australia, and more. Moms Pump Here Nursing Room Locator App (also serving airport lactation rooms) was created by Moms For Moms. Pregnant moms-to-be, and current moms travel and go out with infants and toddlers. They need to know all quiet and private nursing rooms, lactation lounges, nursing pods, and breastfeeding friendly places to breastfeed their baby or express breast milk.
Now they have the nursing room locator app (Also #1 Airport Nursing Rooms Locator) to find a nice vetted spot to nurse. Lactation rooms also help moms relieve oversupply of breast milk which can cause mastitis while breastfeeding. That means they no longer have to use unsanitary public bathrooms. Parenting means doing what's best for your baby, and moms don't want to feed a delicate baby in a restroom since you wouldn't eat your own food there.
