has anyone seen this? BH&G wrote an article about dining out with children and in it said that breastfeeding should be taken to the restroom! i don't know about you, but that disgusts me! isn't there a saying that says "don't eat where you $h**"? so what were they thinking?

here's the article:
http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/food/the-10-commandments-of-dining-with-little-kids-1466320/

and if you're on facebook---

here's a group for boycotting BH&G:

and here's BH&G's fan page so you can tell them how you feel about this article:

i went back to look at the article today and noticed that it was edited. i know some of you noticed it, too. i am happy to see that they listened to all of the comments left on their fanpage on fb. :)

I bf both of mine and think you should either cover up or go somewhere private. It's not hard and I had no clue there were women that were actually immoral enough to think it's okay to bf uncovered in a public place until I joined this site.

I have seen this and frankly, I think it's ridiculous. In my opinion, there isn't ANY place that is inappropriate to breast feed.

Immoral? Seriously? What's immoral about discreetly feeding ones child?

I would feel weird if I didn't cover up. I couldn't just pull out my boob in public.
