I think you misunderstood. I was referring to the poster above TKramar not you. Sorry if you thought I was trying to take a stab at you. I honestly hadnt even read your post. But regardless the movies is not the only place to go when you havent left the house for months and need to get out. There are plenty of other options, like a place a little more noisy were if your child cries it wont dirupt others. And your right sometimes movies are just as loud and disruptive as a baby, and that sucks just as much. But you did say that the people singing songs in the movie were rude and annoying, so why would you want to do the same thing that you just said you didnt like, by bringing in a baby that will probably cry. Usually when someone does something you dont like you dont turn around and do it to other people.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

I did say that I was "guilty" of taking my baby to the movies. It is not a habit, more of an exception. I didn;t do it on a regular basis and I certainly can't do it anymore-- he is just too big. I do think that a nursing baby who is going to spend the entire movie quietly nuzzled under his mom's shirt is different than an disruptive 1+ year old.

We usually just stick to kid's movies and the mommy and me shows now.

Agree with you 100%. There are a millon other places to go, other than the movies. And why do something to other people, that you dont like done to you.

But I do sympathize with you in the aspect that a dark movie is more ideal for nursing. I am just praying my baby wont be the type to not take a bottle, that way if i did need time away, I could just pump and not feel bad for leaving without baby. Again sorry if I offended you in any way. Sometimes when typing on these forums I forget to emphasize who I am directing my comment at.

How do you all stay awake in the movie theatre?

If I took either of my sons with me when I was nursing & was taking them b/c they couldn't be alone for a few hours due to feedings,that means they would have been quite young & I'd be running on 3-4 hrs of sleep at the most.

The dark + sleeping/nursing baby = sleeping mommy

Personally, just don't see it as an appropriate place for an infant, but I've seen moms who do it & the only way I even knew they brought their infant in with them is when we would be leaving & I see them.

I don't care if people bring their babies and children to movies- if I don't hear them

Yes, rude adults get on my nerves....but hey, is it something they learned at home when they were being brought to movies as kids

I guess I lied above- I do care if people bring children to movies, that aren't appropriate. I can't count on 2 hands the amount of rated R movies that I have went to...where there were children under 10 there.....and I had to watch a sex scene, feeling embarrassed just because this little 6 year old was too!!! Or hearing "f---", "motherffffer" and all of these glorious cuss words in this R movie...and knowing they were hearing it too! What kind of parenting is that!

I really think that the rules should change and rated R movies shouldn't be 17 and older UNLESS with a parent- it should just be 17 and older...with an ID!

I disagree.
If your kid is disrupting the other movie goers, it is your responsibility to solve the problem that you brought into the movie theater. Were it not for your (and child's) actions or behavior, the problem wouldn't exist.
Are you willing to personally refund the ticket price to the patrons who are not disturbing others?
I would complain to the manager if the behavior persisted.

Well, somebody hasn't read the papers on the differences of tasking and multitasking in the male and female brain.
