Okay I just ran across this morning upon checking into a group I belong to on Cafemom. Babies born or Due in October 2009. Great group, very supportive. It was then I ran across a posting in support of one of our group Mamas. Her story goes in simple as this.
Bethany and her lovely family went out this past Easter morning to enjoy a meal at The Old Country Buffet. The meal went fine, they ate enjoyed it was then it happened. Her infant son who she is breastfeeding got hungry as babies and people do, so she discreetly draped him and he fed. As babies have habit of he kept kicking off the blanket. After moving back into place a few times it was the unfortunate mistake of a dumb waitress who walked up and said that she need to put the blanket on.
Now I can see a bit if a woman is sitting naked with her boobs blazing out in public. That may not offend me or some, but it may make some feel very uncomfortable.
So for that reason I only do this at home.
I support Mothers, I support babies, I support the right to feed your child when and where they need to be. Why would someone be so offended of something so amazing and beautiful as nourishing a sweet baby ? How is it then sexual?
Is it just ridiculous or immaturity? Both.
Bottom line is, I thought the restaurant was nasty before and I made every excuse not to go and eat a salad I wasn’t sure about anyways. lol Now I have real cause not to go. Good enough.
No Old Country Buffet for me or mine, Boycott.
