I went to see the new Ice Age movie with my 6 mo old daughter this weekend. About 30 mins into the movie, she was hungry so I covered us up and fed her until she fell asleep. At the end of the movie, a woman came up to me and said that it was "gross" and "inappropriate" for me to have breastfed my child in the theater. Overcoming my momentary speechlessness (which doesn't happen to me very often), I said, " YOU'RE allowed to eat in here and so is she." She responded that I should "do it in the bathroom". I asked her if SHE eats in the bathroom, and when she started to say no, I said, "Neither does my daughter."
Has anyone else ever had this happen to them, and if so, how did you handle it?
