b/f in Tunisia

default b/f in Tunisia

Post by michellehagger on Tue Sep 13, 2011 1:42 pm

Hi Ladies,
I'm going on holiday to Tunisia in a few weeks and was wondering if anyone had any tips for feeding Phoebe whilst out there. For example will she be ok eating the hotel food or should I take some jars? She will be 8 months when we go. We are doing baby led weaning and she normaly eats the same foods as us and not jars. Also, does anyone know how socially acceptable it is to breastfeed in public out there? I am happy to feed in public here but do not want to offend anyone in an unfamiliar culture.
Thanks everyone.

Hiya! First of all, lucky you! I think the advice I would give is to bf but be extremeley discrete about it, from what I have heard it is still a culture where women and men are seperated until marriage so foreign women are sometimes looked upon as enticing! its best to keep covered so as not to be bothererd or offend. As far as food goes I think in the main its ok but I would if I were you take some food in jars in case youre eating somewhere else or other foods that she may not be used to, even take plenty of snacks like the organic baby crisps etc..
Hope you have an amazing time, show us photos when you came home xx b/f in Tunisia 871924
