Breastfeeding in a restaurant? The debate rages
One of my classmates mentioned that there's a heated discussion currently going on in the Washington Post restaurant discussion group. A reader complained about a woman openly (gasp!) breastfeeding her baby in a nice restaurant (because you should only breastfeed your baby in a not nice restaurant? Not sure about how that works.) The debate spans from "don't bring your children to nice restaurants at all" to "go do it in the bathroom" to "don't tell me what to do!" My favorite comment is that a woman breastfeeding her child in the dining room has "ruined" the dining plans of everyone else there. Oh no! Because that baby is eating now we can't eat!
