If you were in a restaurant, and there was a woman breastfeeding her baby (without a cover, but discreetly) and the manager asked her to stop, or leave - would you speak up, or would you stay quiet?

  • i would speak up, because in my state its actually against the law to tell a breastfeeding mother to leave or stop breastfeeding her child.

  • I wish I could say that I was a brave upstanding courageous woman who would stick up for her, but the honest truth is that I probably don't have the guts.

  • I'm not much of a confrontational person, but I couldn't live with myself if I stood by and said nothing. I live in Ireland, and it's every womans legal right to breastfeed anywhere her baby is hungry.

  • I would speak up and then I would go to the next hirer person in the company to get to the bottom of this. I wasn't a BFing mother but that is a way that mother choose to feed there child and the manager wouldn't tell her to stop feeding the child if she was giving a bottle so what is the difference.

  • That was on "What would You do" the show. Of course i would speak up and give that guy a piece of my mind. Because it is illegal in most states to discriminate like that. Besides it is a beautiful thing.

  • Nope. Wouldn't bother me. If people are paying to eat their food out and can't enjoy their meal because of one person making them uncomfortable then that person should have some respect.

  • No, she could have either brought an appropriate cover, or put pumped milk in a bottle.

  • I would thank the manager for sticking up for the majority of the patrons as well as his emloyees. A nursing mother should always cover up or choose a private location to breastfeed.
