EXACTLY!! Why else is there a no food no drink rule? The body fluids thing is ridiculous, or they'd have to ban all breastfeeders, women on their periods, babies in case they spit up or a bit of pee escapes from a diaper..

Hell let's just ban all people from public pools, if that's the reason!

I've only read the first 8 pages but I wanted to post.

I think that breast feeding is a unique thing. You can not compare it to bottle feeding, no matter what is in the bottle (the contents of the bottle and all of the arguments surrounding it is for another thread).

If my breasts and I are allowed in the pool than I should be allowed to nurse there. End of story.
