I can't believe this passed. It's been said before, but there are other bodily functions that are natural that aren't performed in public and neither should this. This law isn't for women who are discreet, but for the whack jobs like the woman who decided to sit in the middle of an aisle at I Party to feed her baby there. Now it gives them the power to whip it out and press charges to anyone who says anything.
Sorry but this is the last thing I want to see while I'm eating MY dinner.
Get over it for heavens sake. Mother of 3? Were they immaculate conceptions?
When a child needs feeding you do the best you can. Breast Feeding is the best for a child. I was discrete when I fed my son. But when he was either hungry or my breast felt like they were going to burst I fed him where I could and it wasn't in an unsanitary bathroom or a dirty back hall.
Do you put your childrens meals somewhere else other than the dinner table?
This topic of even having to make it a law to nurse your child in public is even crazy. Mothers shouldn't have even had to go through that trouble of asking for a law to protect them.
