In a follow-up to a previous question, today's Ask Amy column features a rather nasty anti-nursing question and a very pro-nursing answer. I really like Amy Dickenson!<br><br><a href="http://www.chicagotribune.com/features/columnists/advice/chi-0704190100apr20,1,6706524.column?ctrack=1&cset=true" target="_blank">http://www.chicagotribune.com/featur...ck=1&cset=true</a>

Ack, subscription site! I really wanted to read it too. Hmm, maybe that's what Google News is for - that column might be syndicated.<br><br>

OK, I found this - is this the same column, Miss Sonja??<br><br><a href="http://www.newsday.com/entertainment/chi-0703270196mar29,0,3789410.column?coll=ny-entertainment-columnists" target="_blank">http://www.newsday.com/entertainment...ent-columnists</a><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">The idea that breast-feeding a baby is at all controversial in this day and age is completely beyond me. The thought that -- horrors -- a dad might be traumatized (or turned on) if he sees a woman other than his wife feed her baby is ridiculous.</td>

That link/article has a date of nearly a month ago. It looks like today's (in Flor's post) was a letter in response to that earlier article.

Both columns were good, though the older one was much more detailed-and thus better IMO.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lady.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lady">

I hope this doesn't violate the copyright rules at MDC. If it does, Mods, I'm sorry.<br><br><br>
A person had written in about the incident in the article last month. She was saying that a woman shouldn't nurse at her daycare provider's home, because is was obscene, and she should find a bathroom, blah, blah, blah...<br><br>
Amy's reply was:<br><i>Dear Don't: Yes, a nursing mother should be offered a quiet place to feed her baby, if possible, but nursing a baby at the sitter's house hardly seems like a "public" event to me.<br>
Nursing mothers should not have to feed their babies in bathrooms.<br>
When it comes to breast-feeding, the "whining" runs both ways, I'm afraid. People who are offended by it seem to lack a sense of proportion about this simple and natural act.</i>

I can just see it now. I'm in public and all of a sudden sirens go off and I have to push people out of the way to rush to the disgusting bathroom before the whole world implodes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

From the article: "Why must the baby-sitter's other patrons be forced to watch that procedure?"<br><br>
Uh, who's forcing anyone to watch the mother nurse? ("Procedure"? Oy.) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

Well, you know feeding a baby requires a forklift to bring the mom's breast to the baby's mouth. It's such a procedure <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
