Abstract

The issue of appropriateness of human breast-feeding in public has recently turned into a hot topic in Hong Kong. Apparently, no prior study in existing literature has ever attempted to examine this issue in the hotel context and to evaluate its impact on the hotel business. While agreeing that breast-feeding is natural and important to infants, this paper makes no attempt to support or oppose for doing this openly in a hotel. Instead, this paper raises some important research questions, which are worthwhile for hospitality researchers and practitioners to investigate in the future.
