As a veteran mother of five (my youngest is 13, my three older ones in their 20s), I read the story
on breastfeeding with both amusement and skepticism. It's hard for me to believe that a young mother got kicked out of Starbucks in -- of all places -- Miami Beach, a city where people go around topless. Not that it didn't happen, of course. After all, there are plenty of stupid store managers.
Yet, something in the story doesn't ring right. The breastfeeding mom changed her kid's diaper in the restaurant?! That's gross. She should've done it in the bathroom.
Breastfeeding, on the other hand, is a beautiful, selfless, healthy act that is the most natural thing in the world. Do people stare? Sure -- but it never bothered me. I breastfed all my children at a time when there was no Florida law "guaranteeing" the right to do so in public. I suppose I was lucky I never got booted out of restaurants, hotel lobbies, airports etc.
