This does not bother me in the least. I don't really see how it's unsanitary.
 
2012-12-23 03:52:28 PM  
I...............would pay extra to watch that, and if she let me have a sample I would give her my business for life.
 
2012-12-23 03:53:43 PM  
bet you she also drives and breastfeeds
 
2012-12-23 03:54:18 PM  
Frankly, I don't want *any* babies within 10' of any table or place where food is being prepared.

Also, all food served at the restaurant should also be on the menu.

If they have issues with this, I have a feeling I'm going to hear it when I clear the table...while masterbating.

Sit the f*ck down for the short time it takes to feed your kid ya dumb bint.

And seriously, if your PAYING CUSTOMERS are complaining maybe... just MAYBE it is in your best interest to not gross them out even if they are irrational idiots.

I doubt the boob sauce is much of a health risk (can hepatitis or whatever live in breast milk?) but having a poop/snot/vomit factory hanging from your tits while you're cleaning tables might be.

and the government has already apologized...

Right or wrong, if I saw that while I was eating, I'd walk the fark out.

Being married to a woman who breast-fed all three of our kids, I've had enough exposure (haha) to it that to me it DOES seem perfectly natural. Like accepting homosexual relationships, this is one issue that will eventually be looked back on with astonishment that anyone ever found it "gross". And just like homosexuality, if you find it disgusting then the problem is with you.

Gay dudes don't assplow each other on public eating surfaces.

Well maybe they do sometimes but it's not very sanitary.
Santorum for your coffee, anyone?

that which can be done in another room, should be!
it really refers to the bathroom but will work here.
(comb hair, blow nose, make-up, pick teeth, etc)
and yes there should be a room or enclave for brestfeeding-not the bathroom

xanadian: Apparently boobs are at least almost as threatening as a penis.


And apparently to most people as filthy as some fat guys sweaty bunghole. Wow... at 50 nothing usually surprises me anymore, but today I'm flabberdasted. If anyone's at risk it's the baby from the customers.

So how about if the male servers went around shirtless all the time? Do you think that would impact business?
 
2012-12-23 04:12:33 PM  
It's her farking restaurant! It's not like she's a poor trod upon employee fighting a jerk boss. She owns the joint, so she can do what she wants. There is no public health issue here. If people don't like it, they can go to another restaurant. I think the health inspectors should leave it alone.

The people who complained jerks. Fark them.

Breastfeeding isn't a sexual activity. I was only pointing out the similar "grossness" of perception.
 
2012-12-23 04:12:56 PM  
Don't breastfeed where you wouldn't emit any other bodily secretion. If you wouldn't wee there, poo there, fart there, spit there, squeeze a spot there, ejaculate there, don't let your nipples squirt there either.

Yes, it's perfectly natural. So are all the others. But, culturally, all of these things are done in private in the West. Or in pairs. Private, saucy pairs.

OregonVet: I have zero problem.
"I was clearing a table while breastfeeding," she told CBC News.
But who does that?


Yeah, that's the problem I have with this story. I'm all for letting mom's breastfeed in public, but it sounds like she was trying to make a spectacle of it.

Exactly. Who in their right mind would find 2 hot women kissing and exploring each other gross? Their soft curvy bodies rubbing up against each other....nipples touching nipples...scissoring until they're drenched in sweat....
 
2012-12-23 04:15:46 PM  
Why can't she go in back or to a bathroom to feed her baby and get someone else to clear the table. I mean, she is handling people's food and is feeding her child while working on the restaurant floor.
 
2012-12-23 04:16:25 PM  

BunkyBrewman: "I was clearing a table while breastfeeding,"

 It looks like this will be written into the employee handbook right after the section on "All employees must wash hands after using the bathroom".


I've worked as a waitress, and I just don't see how it's logistically possible to clear a table with a baby dangling from my breast.

My bookmarks say otherwise.

Now if you'll excuse me I have to go see if there have been any new pics posted over at lactatinglovelies.com

2012-12-23 04:18:06 PM  
Newsflash: breastmilk is a body fluid. It can also carry pathogenic organisms.

If i were a patron there and saw that, id never go back.

Go secrete your bodily fluids somewhere else...preferably where they cannot contaminate what i am about to eat.

i don't want to see a woman breast feeding her snowflake while i'm eating a dinner i paid for, anymore then i'm sure she wants to see me masturbate while she's having desert.

If you are not going to bother bringing enough for the whole table, then don't display them in the dining room.

Hey, I'm not saying that seeing my wife's boob hanging out didn't make me say to myself "I need to get me some of that".
 
2012-12-23 04:22:27 PM  
Doesn't see the problem:

Of course, she wants to make it mandatory.

I don't have a problem with a woman breastfeeding her child in public, but I can't stand idiots who are militant about it... and clearing a table while she is doing this strikes me as a bit on the unreasonable "militant" side of the issue. Sit in the corner and breast feed your baby. When done, get up and clear the table. Also, don't be one of those weirdos who breastfeeds their kids after they can walk. Once they can walk, they can handle regular foods, and all you can do at that point is hold back their immune systems.

On a side note, wasn't it found that peanut allergies were related to mothers who breastfed while eating peanut products?
 
2012-12-23 04:23:48 PM  
The real problem for me is if she's that free and loose about letting the little monster swing from her milkflaps what else is she doing? Babies are filthy. They sh*t and piss and all sorts of other gross stuff which she is likely cleaning up all the time. Aside from giving the baby a bath somewhere in the restaurant that ISN'T the kitchen sink there is going to be feces and urine on it. She is constantly handling it then touching serving surfaces and quite likely food.

THAT is what is gross. Put the kid in a carrier, wash your freaking hands and THEN take care of restaurant business.

I would definitely walk out of the place even without the boobshow.

The Great Gazoo: Hey, I'm not saying that seeing my wife's boob hanging out didn't make me say to myself "I need to get me some of that".


I had a GF who was still breastfeeding her kid (not mine) and those suckers used to fire off during sex.

It was HILARIOUS.

well... it was hilarious to me. She was mortified because we had just started dating. lol
 
2012-12-23 04:27:01 PM  

aimtastic: quickdraw: Yes because it is more important to keep a handful of prudes happy than do your job and feed your baby.

If those prudes are paying customers and you're the owner of the establishment, then yes, it is more important.


Agreed, it's not necessarily an issue of health but an issue of professionalism. It would be one thing if as the owner she was breast feeding in the back or seated at a table, however to do it while actively working is something different. Perception is reality in this situation.
 
ows
2012-12-23 04:28:09 PM  
maam, can i get some milk for my coffee?
 
2012-12-23 04:29:42 PM  

aimtastic: You're doing something in the restaurant you own that, while perfectly legal, your patrons consider icky enough to lodge formal complaints about it. Presumably more customers didn't bother filing complaints but just never came back. Do you keep doing it while whining about your rights? Or do you realize that walking around a dining room with a baby hanging off your boob might be off-putting to your customers and cut it out?


Done in 4.

Yes it's natural, but while working in food serving it looks unprofessional. She needs to get over herself.
 
2012-12-23 04:30:01 PM  
As a restaurant manager, you do not eat food while working. It is a health violation.

The kid was eating while at work.

jerem43: As a restaurant manager, you do not eat food while working. It is a health violation.


Yup. Hand to mouth is a big no no. You shouldn't even touch your face or hair without washing your hands after.

That's why I said this woman just handling her kid is the real health violation. Not the breast feeding.

hubiestubert: why in the world would you think that feeding your child out in the dining room was OK in the first place?


cache.ohinternet.com

hubiestubert: Food particles drop out of said busboy's mouth, they hit the table. You brush said table with your arm, his saliva has now lovingly transferred to your arm. Possibly only your plate when you reach for the salt, or pick up your sandwich, and then it can be passed straight into you. YOU may not notice it, but in the industry, that is not just a small no no, it's something that you can fire someone for. You eat, you eat away from the patrons, off the line, out of the way, and you wash up after. You don't eat on the line, you don't eat behind the bar, you wash your damn hands.


Eating away from the patrons isn't a hygiene thing, it's an ambiance thing. Busboy germs aren't any more icky than patron germs.

That's some seriously funny stuff though.

Good on her for knowing her rights and sticking to her guns (so to speak). If I lived over there, for every one of you in the thread who said "I'd leave", I'd go eat there twice.
 
2012-12-23 04:37:08 PM  
One question I have is if she's comfortable enough/able to multi-task like this, does she think it's ok to breastfeed in all other aspects of the restaurant operations? She got 'busted' for feeding while clearing tables- given her perspective, is it the same for food prep, food inventory, etc?

^ Totally just thinking outloud, not trying to imply she actually does these things - but I'll tell you right now, if I was eating at her establishment & saw her feeding the baby in the dining room, I would assume she has no problem doing it anywhere, even in the kitchen.
 
2012-12-23 04:37:28 PM

My wife was embarassed, too...until I told her it was sexy.

perhaps laughing wasn't the most helpful response? lol
