Lingerie store says no to breast-feeding

Full story: Houston Chronicle

In a Victoria's Secret store, surrounded by frilly bras and blown-up images of barely covered models, Lori Rueger says she was told to find somewhere else to breast feed.

I doubt seriously she was trying to get attention. Crying hungry babies would get far more attention. She probably just got the closest available bench behind a door. No one who has ever been in that situation can blame her. To the person who said they were shopping there that day, honestly, if a store is that busy, they need more than 2 dressing rooms. Who wants to spend 20 minutes looking for a nursing room when the baby is crying? All you want to do is settle THEIR tummy and YOUR nerves. To the person who thinks men get turned on by the sight of a nursing mother - all I can say is, dirty diapers make a great arsenal (ask me how I know). But you *cant* see anything when I nurse my baby. Fuzzy baby head and maybe an inch of flesh (that looks *gasp* just like any other darned flesh on my body - a darned 1 piece matronly bathing suit shows more cleavage). And I know, I've nursed that child standing up in Walmart while browsing clothes and diapers. Not a soul in Walmart ever said I should move or stop feeding the baby. Jeez, people need to get a life. If I had gone into VS to look at stuff and my son started crying, I'd have sat down in the dressing room too. It's not a STUNT (though it does require a bit of flexibility and coordination) nor is it a vie for attention. It's a mom wanting her baby to stop crying. And you *really* don't want to know what I think of people who have something nasty to say about nursing a baby, public or private. Honestly, it's a rather pitiful show of ignorance and utter stupidity. It's almost a throwback - I want to tilt my head and stare at those people in amazement that they remember how to breathe.
totally agree with you, i have a 4 month old, though i do not breast feed, i do believe you do have to take care of their needs of hunger, breast feeding is natrual, and should not be a big deal or a topic of discussion.people need to get over the fact that it will be done.mind their business and keep going..

I wonder if the people who were so offended ever browsed through National Geographic Magazine?

I was once rebuked for breast feeding my baby in church by a busy body. Busy body admonished, "Let all things be done decently and in order!" I would like to say thank you GOD for blessing this society with intelligent, perceptive individuals like TAYLOR and DANIELLE! You people rock!!!

good god, another breast feeding issue? People need to grow up, there are everal different ways to feed a baby, the breast is just as viable an option as anything. and i am willing to be that anyone who wants to complain has never had a baby cry around them and then...low and behold....breast milk dribbling out around the breast pad and all over your clothes. i breast fed both of my kids, and i got dirty looks and snide comments...and i stared them down.

Hi Stephanie, that was a really sweet thing to say. Thank you.

I'm sorry to hear about your incident. Most people aren't so bold as to make snide comments like that, especially in church. If they have a problem with a nursing mom they just shouldn't look - lol - it seems like a simple solution to me. Hopefully you won't have to deal with anything like that again. Thank you for the very nice compliment. That made my day.

Kind regards, taylor

gotta agree, people stare at you no matter what, if you have a crying baby, as if it bothers them. i have a 4 month old, i am 30, but look alot younger than that. people stare at me when my daughter cries, and have these little old ladies (3 times) and tell me i am too young to be having babies, especially when they see my 5 year old boy with me too.

sorry, back to the subject, there are many ignorant people and perverts that have a problem with women that breastfeed, even if i dont breastfeed, i still think it is a very natrual thing in life, and like many of you say, they just need to mind their business. hungary,crying babies dont want to wait to be fed!!

seems to me that noone has thought of the baby the baby was hungry and i know being a mother of 3 when they want to eat they dont wait for you to walk to the other end of the mall with ut screaming baby gets hunger pains just like the rest of you and you all know its not a good feeling but most of you get up and get somethng to eat before you get to that point well can a newborn get up and get there own food? NO so i say everyone that thinks this women was wrong and the worked at the store are all wrong think about the baby

Actually, it was just some guy attempting to breast feed off of one of the Victoria's Secret manniquens! He thought it was the real thing.

Dressing rooms are for dressing. The End. If I'm at the mall shopping - I don't want to see anyone breast-feeding - and as a woman - you can't call me insensitive or sexist - I don't want to see that when I'm shopping for lingerie!

By the way - for those of you who are crying out that the poor baby will go hungry - 5 minutes never killed anyone with the munchies - and by the way - that's why they invented breast pumps - so you could take a bottle - not yout tit!

You do not take the breast pump with you to pump at a store ... you are so stupid! That was not one of the reasons that the breast pump was invented ... get a clue! Do you see a lot of women (who are nursing) carrying a breast pump??? Nnnnoooo ... dddaaahhhhh ... that is stupider than the other idiot that says she did not want to see a woman breast feeding while she is shopping.

Who needs a dressing room to breastfeed anyway? When I breasfeed in public, 99% of the people walking by don't even realize it, it usually takes another breastfeeding mother to recognize by the baby's position.
If this mother is uncomfortable breastfeeding in public, she should have gone to the nursing room that the malls here have.
No ONeASKS:
What was she shopping for?

Moma,
I've seen many breastfeeding babies, and it just makes me smile. All momas, like all brides, are beautiful.
A breast, feeding a baby is not sexy, and never innapropriate.

A breat about to fall out is 'way sexier than a breast that's out.
A breast feeding a baby is a thing of joy, of love, but not of sex.

A baby at the breast
Is like slippers.
It gives you a warm comfortable feeling,
Like sunlight on your face.
Magic of life,
Droplets of eternity.

A pump at the breast
Inspires no poetry.
