Your DH sounds a bit naive - many skirmishes in The Mommy Wars have been sparked by less than what he proposes. I think what you thought (that it's none of your business) is spot on.

What would I do? I'd tell my DH to butt out.

OP, it's nice that you've made it clear to her that she's welcome to bring her baby or pump during the day. I don't think there's anything you can do beyond that. Just tell your DH you're uncomfortable broaching the topic with her.

I guess if my boss were to make comments on breast feeding I would also feel uncomfortable - especially if my views were different. A boss to employee relationship is a lot more different than just mom to mom.
Sorry to go OT, but I just have to share that the first time I met my boss's boss (when I was visibly pregnant), as he was shaking my hand during our introduction he said, "Are you going to breastfeed?" Uh ... hi, inappropriate much?!?
