How is it any more disruptive to pick the child up to go "run around outside" as others have suggested?? The way she left with the child didn't sound disruptive to me. Also, my own children and their needs come before the comfort of perfect strangers.

If someone is CHOOSING to be disrupted by something completely normal than that's their problem. I suppose next you'll tell me that if it's disrupting "other patrons" to see a woman nursing her toddler than she should stop immediately.

The way she described it, it is very hard to understand the reaction of the bystander I agree.

Getting upset seeing a child being pulled by the arm out of a restaurant while the child is visibly upset doesn't strike me as equivalent to getting upset seeing a child nurse.

My question was to the people who said that it is better than the child disrupting the patrons (which this one wasn't). I don't understand why one way of disrupting patrons is better than another way of disrupting patrons.
