I don't understand why some of these mothers can't use a bit of discretion when it comes to this issue and employ a bit of privacy. It may be a natural thing to breastfeed a baby, but the whole world doesn't need to see you doing it. I agreed with many of the comments below the story about hygiene and the pool. Some of these women have no common sense.

Fighting for the right to nurse in the pool. Can you say looking for some headline attention? It would appear she succeeded...What next? While driving the car? Where the hell has common sense gone in this world? Go ahead lady, slip and drown your baby, then sue the pool owner...Book her a rubber room...

And now, she is pondering her next course of action -- see today's Toronto Star... I'm too much of a gentleman to offer my suggestion. Point of interest; the three comments here are from males. All of us, I'm guessing, admirers of the female form. But there is a time and a place for everything - was that not how we were brought up? While my dear old Mum was known to whip out a breast to feed one of her brood at the drop of a maternity brassiere, she would never have considered doing so in a public place. Ever.

Time for a woman to weigh in with her opinion, and it matches the guys'. Use your head, and find a quiet out-of-the-way place to feed your baby. The baby will certainly be happier, and no-one will have to bitch about seeing your mammaries.

"Whip out a breast to feed one of her brood.." Wow, I'm shaking at the imagery there!
OK, seriously, I read the woman's article about her complaint and it reminded me of the Gwen Jacobs nude walking incident at University of Guelph in the 1990s. Ms. Jacobs was a student who liked to walk minus shirt or anything else on top. She was fine until she left Winegard Walk on campus. When she hit Edinburgh Street the police handed her a fine. Of course, this made the papers and Jacobs took it to court. I was a staffer at the Ontarion newspaper doing edits and music reviews, interviews. She will probably live to regret this coverage.

What about the teeth? Does this child not have teeth and at 20 months, is this child not on solid foods? If not, the child should be. Then this woman wouldn't have to worry about breastfeeding in the pool. Case closed. Sensationism at it's finest hour in this one. "Look ma, I made the headlines"...

To be clear, this is not, from my standpoint about sexuality... it's about health and common sense. Just because the law says you can does not necessarily make it right. Many times, as we all know, the law is an ass...
