Breast Feeding in Restaurant

Was out for lunch in a very busy restaurant today and a woman at the table next to us started breast feeding. Couldn't believe it. I thought it was so ignorant. I looked around at people's reactions and everyone seemed shocked. Obviously it's not something people haven't seen before, but in a restaurant while people are eating?

There's a time and a place.

I wonder if the majority of people feel this way. Going by people's facial expressions in the restaurant they weren't too impressed.

Why is something that's so fundamentally natural so horrific? What is so 'ignorant' about a woman using her own body to feed her baby? Why do you find this so shocking?

I'll take the ban if it comes, as it will be worth it.

You're a moron. You mentioned ignorance in your post. It certainly wasnt the mother who was guilty of this. Thankfully there arent too many around like you.

It was lunchtime. Babies need lunch too. Breasts are designed to give milk to babies. Get over it ffs.

Prepare for "Having a wank is natural but you don't do that in public" derpiness.
I think she's on a wind-up tbh.

"Ignorant" - lol. Someone needs a dictionary.

So where should the lady in question fed her baby? In the toilets? Or she shouldn't go out at all?

Ignorant? I would look in the mirror.

Imagine... A human in a restaurant, feeding as god intended! What's the bit that disgusts you? Her tits or the fact that a baby requires food and refuses to wait for a more opportune time? Did you associate her breasts with sex? Do you feel dirty?
