Mom asked to leave Applebee's for breastfeeding

Anyone else feel strongly about this? I think it's terrible that this woman couldn't feed her baby and was asked to leave the restaurant. How do you feel about this news article?

The incident is reported to have happened on Sept 15th. The manager was the ont that asked her to leave but they did release this statement:
“We’re in the business of welcoming guests to our restaurants and our top priority is always to provide a friendly and comfortable environment for everyone, including nursing mothers who have the right to nurse in public,” the company said in a statement, according to 11 Alive.

I saw that, I was wondering if the actual manager that gave her the ultimatum had said why he asked her to go to the bathroom. I just wonder what his side of the story is.

I also wonder how she was feeding him since it wasn't a baby it was a toddler. It was an almost 2 yr old. Wonder if she was one of the expose everything and let the kid run around and come nurse Mothers. Even if she was holding him a 2 yr old is a lot harder to keep private. A lot more is going to be exposed. And was she doing it tastefully or letting everything hang out? which no one wants to see while eating.

Truthfully I don't think 2 yr olds need to be nursed in a restaurant. It isn't like they need to get all their nutrition from the breast as a baby would. I'm sure the kid is on table food and could have waited. That is my opinion.

I agree Hannathy.

Since a nurse-in is planned, I wonder if all of this is just a set up. It wouldn't surprise me.

I agree.

A 2 year old could wait until they got home .

I think that I remember this incident and if it's the one I'm thinking about it happened a long, long time ago.
