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 with this.

Depends on how is was done. If it was like how an Oriental women I saw recently in the MK Main St. bakery I can see why. If it was done with a blanket in the back corner maybe not.

BTW, the lady in the bakery was quite attractive, the child older than I would have thought to be on a bottle or nipple and she had quite a few admirers.

I agree.

A 2 year old could wait until they got home .

Refering to someone as "oriental" is considered racially offensive. And, what does her race have to do with breast feeding?

Someone breastfeeding a 2 year old in public is doing it for attention.

She got what she wanted and now she's going back for more.

The manager sounds like an idiot and needs to be demoted to dishwasher. The law doesn't specify what the age cut off limit is, or how much skin is allowed to be exposed when nursing your child. The law, the one the manager was to ignorant to know or adhere to, states that you can nurse your child in public regardless of age.

I would not opt to nurse my child at 20 months for a variety of reasons, but I am well aware that there are plenty of women out there who do. Since when are other people supposed to live up to my expectations and ideas? If they feel it is best for their child, then fine and if they choose to do it in a back booth at Applebees, then have at it! I fail to see how it is hurting anyone. Maybe people need to be a bit more engaged with their table mates instead of staring at other patrons? Maybe people need to grow up and stop sexualizing breast feeding.

I am always amazed at the ignorance of people, telling nursing mothers to go the bathroom to nurse. Seriously? How about you grab your burger and fries and sit in the stall next to me. When you do that, then I will think about feeding my child in there.

Oriental? You do realize that is not a race, right? It's nothing more then a racist term. Classy.

So, only ugly people can breastfeed? Or is it that they can't because they aren't attractive enough? I'm confused as to why her being "quite attractive" is an important part of your story? Maybe the "admirers" need to grow up and put their tongues back in their mouths?

Why should she have to? Because it might offend someones delicate sensibilities? Because it was something you chose not to do? What is the age cut off before you are no longer allowed to breastfeed in public?

A mother has every right to nurse a baby or toddler in public. If you find it offensive, look the other way. As long as people at other tables aren't making a racket, then I never even look at them - I pay attention to the friends and family at my table. I don't understand why this is even an issue.

A 2 year old should wait because at 2 they need to be eating "real" grown up food. Not sucking on mom for comfort. I for one don't sexualize it, but I do think the mom has a problem, she needs to train the child to eat and not depend on her for comfort or food, his food is on a plate in front of him.

Men are funny sometimes. They spend their whole lives trying to see women's breasts, then when they finally get to see one in public they are the first to complain.

Probably because as her 2 year old was running around the table in between "sips" mom was sitting there with her ****s on display. As much as I love my oriental chicken salad, seeing a half naked woman sitting at the table next to me would probably get my attention over my meal.

I'm kidding, sort of. I think there is more to the story and we aren't getting it from the innocent mom who just wanted to feed her hungry toddler.

Anyone else wonder why these breast feeding mother's would want to patronize a place that doesn't allow them their freedom? I mean, most people boycott, not stage a nationwide lunch at the restaurant. I bet this will be one of Applebee's most profitable days. Way to show them nursing moms!!

when a manager gave her an ultimatum — nurse her baby in the bathroom or leave.
If this is what he said to her, then he is an idiot and ignorant of the law and should not be managing a restaurant.
