I read the story on huffington post, and if you read the comments a lot of people are pretty rude about nursing in public. I think it is refreshing to hear about kudos, rather than someone kicking yet another woman out of a restaurant for nursing in public.
carriesu2003:I saw that story and I thought it was sort of strange. I totally understand the embarrassment of breast feeding in public and it does make you feel good when someone gives you a smile like "do what you gotta do honey" but I still don't get it. What difference does it make to the waitress how this woman feeds her kid? I understand that BF is "what's best for baby" but I wouldn't consider it an act of public service. I have noticed on the bump that some of the FF moms are suuuuper sensitive about the whole BF thing and this story sort of makes me understand why. The implication here is that breastfeeding is linked to being a good person to the point of warranting a free pizza. Don't mean to throw shade on the waitress who was trying to be nice but it just strikes me as weird.
I think the kudos towards the mother was less about breastfeeding and more about being brave enough to nurse in public.
DC2London:I really want to read the article, but I'm too buys obsessing over the idea of crab rangoon pizza. How divine does that sound?
This. Exactly this. I keep wondering what it tastes like...
