Last week I saw a news report about a mother of a breastfeeding infant who took an issue with how she was treated at a restaurant when she needed to breastfeed. My first reaction was, oh how dare they, blah, blah, blah!! But then I really listened to what happened and I changed my opinion about how the restaurant treated her. Take a look:
Now think about it a little. What do you think? What should the restaurant be required to do for her in this case? Anything? There's no doubt that their hospitality toward this woman was severely lacking, but is that a crime? Did they tell her not to breastfeed? No. I know there is a breastfeeding bill in the works for Massachusetts to protect breastfeeding moms in public, but I assume that does not mean that every business needs to provide a private place to breastfeed, just allow women to do it in public, which this restaurant did!
