After 15 years of nursing my five boys, you would think I could handle being asked to leave a restaurant for NIP. I should have had the perfect comeback... the right words... facial expression... or hand gesture...but I was too shocked. Never have I been asked to cover up or leave... ever. What the waitress did was illegal...and darn rude! I have half a mind to go back tomorrow with some nursing friends and see what happens. If that waitress had a problem with me nursing a 7 month old, wait till she sees moms nursing 3 and 4 year olds!!!

I'm so sorry that happened to you...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> What exactly did the waitress say? I would contact the manager and your local LLL? Maybe they can give you some good info....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

What did you say/do? In my 4.5yrs of nursing I have never been asked to leave a restaurant/store/house/etc. but I might be lucky. I have heard stories... My mother was asked to leave a restaurant while nursing my brother but that was 30some yrs ago.<br><br>
I think it would be great to have some cards printed up stating our rights as nursing mothers. This way we wouldn't have to explain or defend - we could just hand them the card and wait for them to change their tune <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/oops.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="oops"><br><br>
I think it would be a good idea to call and speak with the manager and explain a few things...

Hi jog, welcome to Mothering. Yes, the Natural Family Living magazine that supports and endorses nursing a toddler.<br><br>
Can I help you? I am a moderator here. I would be happy to help with any questions you may have.<br><br>
Perhaps you would like to post to the Pleased to Meet You forum to introduce yourself? You know..talk about what your interests in Natural Family Living might be...what led you to Mothering?<br><br>
We do not actually permit people to discourage people from nursing toddlers because it is perfectly normal and WHO (World Health organization) Recommend nursing up to the age of two or even longer if the mother and child are happy with it.<br><br>
You'll find that many parenting boards may find this extreme, but this board was made for the NFL community and is owned by Mothering...it is not mainstream nor is it intended to be.

So what led you to Mothering? Do you have children? Does your family practice NFL? How many kids do you have? What do you do? Do you like your town? Is it very NFL? Are you looking to discuss NFL and AP?<br><br>
So Joe, how would you feel if a stranger kept asking your wife over and over about her experiences with nursing a toddler without giving a reason why they might wish to know?
