This is so ridiculous. Its the most natural thing in the world to feed your child whether the way nature intended or via a bottle with a teet that is SHAPED AND COLORED like a nipple! This lady isn't breastfeeding in public to be provocative. There is nothing sexual about breastfeeding - ask any breast feeding mother! A woman in a bikini top looks more sexual than a mother in a tank top, cradling her baby who's head is covering most of her breast. At most, it looks like she has an asymmetric top on. Get a grip people. Like everyone else has said, no one is forcing you to look. If you catch a glimpse, its a glimpse of a mother nourishing her child, nothing more than that. Just don't look back. And if a child sees it, simple explanation: "That's how some mummies feed their babies when they are hungry so they grow up to be big and strong". I don't know any guy that would be aroused by seeing a baby feeding, gheez.

I do not see why people are making such a big deal over this. She is feeding her child. Leave this mother, father and their children alone!

i agree, i honestly think that lady was on a power trip, rolling your eyes at a customer is never a sign of a good manager.

well, there is breast feeding and there is "HAY! LOOK! I'M BREASTFEEDING!" I think breast feeding is fine, but "HAY LOOK! I'M BREASTFEEDING" is not necessary. This woman was just breastfeeding.. come on world, I have seen magazine covers in the supermarket that show more boob than this woman was showing.
God Bless America....Moving on....Peace....

When we all remember what a woman's breasts are for, the world will be a better place. Breastfeeding in public should never be an issue.

As a Children's Librarian, i see moms all the time breast feeding. Its one of those precious moments that makes life so much more wonderful in the line of work i do. I must say thou that most of the moms have their child's head covered up where the breast is also not revealed, for they understand some form of modesty needs to be maintained just in case someone might find it offensive in some shape or form.

Well, I am a mom of 6, and I breast fed,too,and whether or not it is against the law or not, the DECENT thing would be to cover up. In my opinion, the woman was looking for a fight, and her ignorance was showing. The employee was doing the right thing: single men and small kids do not need to see that. She should have shown some common sense (clearly, she had none,) and used a rest room. What she had done and the husband as well, was innappropriate behavior. Indecent exposure, anyone ??

What do you mean that she should have shown some common sense and used a rest room? Feed a baby in a rest room where women are defecating and urinating and changing their sanitary napkins etc.? Maybe you have no problems feeding your children in public toilets, but this woman did. Remember, you breast fed your shildren whether it was against the law or not. You are a fine one to talk about decency. I hope you are not a teacher because you have no class.

What an AWESOME husband for standing up for his family. Babies shouldn't have to eat in bathrooms, hot cars or closets. Give me a break!
