If that is what he said to her, there are 2 sides to every story. My question is why did he say it to her.

Yes, that is your opinion. Obviously this is not the opinion of the mother of the 20 month old in the article.

Do, I think she has a problem? No, just different ideas about breastfeeding then I have. The child was 20 months old, not 5.

Public nudity is against the law in most places, but in most places, nursing in public is also legal, so the manager is in the wrong.

Not if she wasn't nursing though. For all we know she could have been sitting there, nude, while her almost 2 year old was sitting in their own high chair, or walking around the table. I'd like to hear the manager make a statement about the incident before I condemn him.

And at 20 months, my child was eating off the table and very wide variety of food, she wasn't on any type of bottle or even a pacifier, same with my other 2 kids. A 20 month old doesn't need mommy's milk. And who said anything about a 5 year old, why that random number.

Oh well I guess since you didn't say almost 2 I assumed we were referring to kids ages in months. My bad.

There's really not enough information in the article for me to form an opinion about this incident. The law is probably on the nursing mother's side.

HOWEVER, while I think that most nursing mothers probably nurse as discreetly as possible in public (and I'm not talking about hiding under a blanket), not all of them do. My SIL had a baby around the same time that we adopted our son who was a toddler at the time. She joined a breastfeeding support group. One day, when she and I were at the mall with the kids, we met one of the leaders from her group at the mall. SIL had apparently told the group that she was the first in her family to breastfeed. As soon as she introduced me as her SIL (who obviously had an older baby than SIL's), this lady gave me the what-for about not caring about my child's health because I didn't breast-feed him. (She did not know at that time that he was adopted, and not a baby at the time of adoption... but really, did she need to know?)

While we were together, she and SIL needed to feed their babies. This woman made the biggest production of it that I've ever seen -- and exposed herself a lot (much more than necessary, and much more than I've ever seen anyone else do.) She was a self-described "breastfeeding activist" and was basically DARING anybody to comment negatively about what she was doing.

So while I think that *most* women just want to give their children nutrition in the best way they can. There are some who are over-the-top ridiculous about it... and this article makes me wonder if she was one of those.

Should I be offended if people call me Latin? I had no idea using the term Oriental (because they are from the Orient) would offend anyone. Me thinks things are getting a little out of hand...Racist? wow...

As for the breastfeeding, I don't like to form opinins without the other side of the story and there probably is another side of the story.

Disagree. The WHO recommend mothers breastfeed until 2. Nothing wrong with breastfeeding a 20 month old. In fact I breastfed my older one until 20 months. At that point she decided to self wean.

But even if the child IS 5 years old, the mother can breast feed if she wants, right?

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.


I don't see anything in the story that even remotely resembles what you are describing.)

Also clearly a high class place, that Applebee's. Wouldn't want to offend those folks with toddler-feeding. I bet that evil promiscuous nursing mom just wanted to set them up. Yup.


To quote Neil Degrasse Tyson "The great thing about science is it's true whether you believe it or not."

Some of you may have negative opinions about nursing a 2 year old, but the fact is that science is on the side of those moms who continue to nurse.
We have a lot of old fashioned opinions in this society (like wearing no jacket in the cold will make you sick), the fact that they may be popular doesn't make them true though. I'll stick with science.
