|The government is considering plans to support mothers with the right to nurse their babies in public.
At present, women can face prosecution under public order or indecency legislation if they breastfeed in public.
But ministers are considering plans to allow mothers to breastfeed babies up to the age of six months in public.
A spokesman for the Cabinet Office said: "Final decisions have yet to be made, but the Government is keen to give new mothers complete confidence to breast feed while going about their normal business, for example while on the bus or in a café."
