Re: Ugggggggggg.....

I wish I had been there with your ladies....I would have gladly BF my 15 month old son along with you guys. Can you imagine how grossed out that silly woman would have been then?!

Don't let people get to you Mama....you are doing the best for your baby.

That is terrible! Ppl are so rude and I think that they handled it terribly too. The server should have apologized to you guys! I say go there everyday or at least once a week to just sit and sip on drinks and nurse your children. They will learn to respect it or they will regret it.

Re: Ugggggggggg.....

Mamas! Sorry that happened to you guys. How embarrassing that the lady freaked out on you, but for the server to treat you poorly that is just wrong. Can you call the resturant and talk to the manager? They need to train there employees to not discriminate.

Re: Ugggggggggg.....

I'm assuming or hoping by now you have each written letters to the manager of the resturant and your local LLL? People can be such a-holes. Plan a nurse in in front of that place and I"ll come down...believe me, if they saw my bazooks, they'd definately lose their appetite.... LOL

Re: Ugggggggggg.....

that makes me so angry. I am sorry you had to go through that. I hope that when those women have babies in the future they realize how horrible they were to you.

Oh, and that letter you are writing.... I would make darn sure that the local papers and even the local news stations get a copy of it....

Re: Ugggggggggg.....

I hope I don't freeze if that happens to me.

I always imagined I would say something like "oh, did I spray breastmilk in your food when I latched him on?...then why is YOUR meal ruined? Don't ruin my son's meal." Something along those lines.

To add a funny, I was helping DS latch on one night when he was just a few weeks old, and I actually sprayed my DH with breastmilk. I had no idea. Apparently, the shower landed on his face. He just laughed!

So, unless I spray their meals in BM, I don't see the problem!

As for the wait staff, I think people have a hard time interacting when you are breastfeeding, like their neck is going to snap from not looking at the baby. I had a lady at Motherhood Maternity ask if she could see the baby (not knowing he was latched on), and I said "sure, well, what part of him you can see"...we both laughed.

That does suck...

I can't believe it. I have never had a negative nursing experience such as this, and I hope I never do. Why can't people understand that this is what our boobs are for? It's natural and beautiful.

Re: Ugggggggggg.....

You should stage a sit in, have everyone you know, and include all of LLL in your area. Go to that resturant and get a huge table. And all nurse at the same time. It is your right to nurse, and we should never be embarassed to do so in public. I had a simular experience with a resturant out here. They have a take out bench in the back by the restrooms, I sat on it and nursed sue. The manager a women walked up and asked " Would you like a chair to feed your baby in the bathroom" I looked her in the eye and said " How would you like to eat your lunch in a bathroom?
She walked away.

It is your right at women to feed your baby, dont ever let anyone tell you other wise. And that waiter wouldnt have gotten a tip....
