Do you say something?

We are at Disney having dinner at Cinderellas castle. We have our 2 and a half year old and our 3 month old. We are at a table on the side of the room and off around the corner. I had to breastfeed my son... there was no other place to go. I had a full shawl on there is no way anyone could see anything. An older woman 2 tables over gets up has to look for a minute or two then goes back to her table and announces in disgust " she is actually breatfeeding at that table!" I was so embarressed and almost started to cry. My husband wanted to go say something to her but I stopped him for fear we would have WWF in cinderellas castle. Would you have said something to her?

  • People are so rude! You should have stood up and just flashed her both!!! Maybe squirted her in the eye with some milk!

    Cinderella probably would have given you a high five! lol

    Why do people want to deny a baby the right to eat while they are gouching down food!

  • Just ignore her--you did nothing wrong.

    but then again, she actually got up. came over, took a look and walked back in disgust. I admire your restraint.

    Hmmm....if it wasn't the "happiest place on earth" I would have def said something....you can't fix stupid though :-)

  • Hell yeah! And I didn't even breastfeed. That woman was a bitch, pure and simple.
    I'm so sorry you had your day ruined over someone so dumb. What did she expect, for you to hide under the table or something?
    But you're right. Cindarella's castle may not have been the place to kick ass :-)
    Please know she is the minority, that we aren't all so ignorant and judgemental.

  • That is just crazy....I mean how does she think she was fed as a baby??? Formula wasn't around until, what, 30 years ago? Come on now. It's not like you had your boobs out there on the table. Forget her. Uptight people.

  • No. Don't let her ignorance affect your holiday. She's old and probably bottle fed!

  • Wow...if she didn't like it, she didn't have to announce it. Seriously....she must have been searching the tables to find something wrong with somebody (even though it's not that big of a deal). I don't pay enough attention to other people around me! lol

  • Most likely I would of wanted to say something and my hubby would of stopped me.

    Don't worry about what some uptight old lady says.....she doesn't speak for the rest of the world :)

  • Maybe some baby round house kickes to the head would have set her straight :) Breast feeding rocks!
