In the fifties, they encouraged bottle feeding.....that way all the poor men didn't have to be tempted by boobies. lol It also promoted the sell of something and we all know how American that is.
Bottle feeding was encouraged because of it's convienence.

As more women entered the work force, breast feeding no longer an option for them.

What a crock of baloney. She belongs to a breastfeeding group, and this was meant to "promote" public breastfeeding. Who's she kidding?

They sure didn't go to DL to take a 10-month-old on the rides. But she said her husband was ready with the camera to shoot pics of the disapproving public alongside her ear-to-ear grin--photos she couldn't wait to share with her group.

Wise up, people.

It would be a lot easier to take this woman's critics seriously if there were more comments about modesty and fewer about sagging, floppy breasts.

While one can argue the wisdom, yes there are people who will poke others in the eye for getting poked in the eye.

It's a reaction to those who have a negative reaction towards women breast feeding in public.

When we once again understand it's normal, it all goes away.

Urinating is normal too, but one doesn't whip it out and display their parts in front of others or they end up on the sexual offender's list.

The reaction was not to the woman breastfeeding in public but with her whipping out her teats in a public family entertainment venue that has specific, very nice baby care centers equipped with the necessary elements to breastfeed.

Many times, as I have said, we had to get out of line with our son. It is part of parenting.

We no longer go to Disney for a variety of reasons, a lot having to do with the disrespect, crudeness and general behavior of others.

There is a right way to do something and a wrong way, she chose the wrong way. This makes it more difficult for those that choose the right way, not flipping out both of their teats in a public venue where children are present. Bet the younger boys enjoyed this more than the nursing 10 month old.

It gets so old having to repeat yourself over the same tired arguments.

If she pulls a boob out and starts shooting it on the sidewalk, I will condemn her also.

They have places to dine also but yet people eat in line.

As I note......it once was normal in public and young boys paid it no mind.

Cause I am sure that is exactly what she did.... She whipped it out and flung it around for everyone around her to see. LOL. What exactly is going to happen to these other children seeing a mother breastfeed her child and them possibly seeing a breast? Are people really so uptight about a boob?

Do you ever wonder why good manners are so important? After all, most parents start teaching polite words and phrases to their children early in life. Throughout life, people face behavior rules and consequences of ignoring them. Employee handbooks are loaded with rules of etiquette and showing respect to coworkers.
Why Have Good Manners?

Without proper etiquette, society would be a mess with free-for-all behaviors that would have rude people dominating those who care about others.

People would say whatever was on their minds, regardless of how crass it is. Forks would fly, and elbows would rock tables in restaurants and homes. Diners would be grossed out by people who speak with their mouths full of food.

Don't be silly. I had 4 children and no one was ever smothered or exhibited any anxiety because of the diaper. We could see each other and the child was being talked to and cuddled. That counts for a lot, along with feeding them.

I grew up in the conservative South in the late 40's onward. I have seen boys get all giggly, sneaking around a nursing woman, trying to get a peak at the breast, throughout those years. If they managed to do so, they would run off together, giggling, gather up behind a structure and make little laughing remarks.....lol. They were boys. Now these self same 9-10 year olds know way to much for their age and are often times completely jaded. They are bombarded with so much sex and violence, their sensitivities are often blunted. The innocence is gone......I mourn that.

Itís nice that all 4 of your children didnít have a problem with the way you wanted to nurse. But it doesnít represent all babies. Some donít like it, some want to see whatís going on, etc. Itís silly to think there is one universal type of baby.
