Burger King To Allow Breast-Feeding

[Q]Burger King To Allow Breast-Feeding
Fast-Food Chain Announces New Policy Friday

POSTED: 11:32 p.m. EST November 21, 2003
UPDATED: 11:40 p.m. EST November 21, 2003

SALT LAKE CITY -- From now on, mothers who wish to breast-feed their babies are welcome to do so in Burger King restaurants.


The fast-food chain announced its new policy Friday, one day before a planned "nurse-in."


Members of an international group that promotes breast-feeding had planned the protest after a mother in suburban Salt Lake City was asked to feed her baby in a bathroom or leave the restaurant. A customer had complained to Burger King employees.


Under the new policy, employees are told if a customer complains about a mother who's breast-feeding, they are to explain that breast-feeding is permitted in the restaurant and suggest that the complaining customer move.


Burger King said its new policy had been in the works and wasn't timed to defuse the threatened protest.

I had no clue that they could make such a policy!!!!! Welcome to the 20th century Burger King!

Its about time ppl started to recognize breast feeding as natural rather than taboo. I used to nurse my children (discreetly) in public and the vast majority of ppl are supportive of this I found. Babies get hungry and I refused to take my wee ones into dirty public bathroom stalls to nurse them.

these people have to figure out what makes them so uncomfortable with such a natural thing. Would they like to get forced into the bathroom when they eat their whoppers? I think not!

Don't take this the wrong way, if it stops the baby from crying I'm all for it!

Normal

Okay, as a woman I don't want to see breast feeding anywhere. Urinating and deficating are also natural, should we allow this in public? I know, I know, there is a public health issue there but still. When I'm eating I don't particularlly enjoy seeing a woman whip out her breast. It really grosses me out. Is that really wrong?

You are comparing deficating to feeding a child?

You're eating, the child is eating, what's the big deal? I think it's just a society thing where we're taught to be ashamed of our bodies. They are breasts, God created them for feeding, why are we denying this?

Agreed.

I've never understood why breasts were something to be hidden away. It's not like we had a say in them being a part of our bodies.

I have nice breasts, if I do say so myself. In fact, they are even a bit too large if you ask me. I have issue wearing a low cut shirt or using them to get what I want but it really creeps me out to see a 16 month old nursing. Sorry. If I ever have children I will not breast feed. I will use the pump for as short time as possible.

How is deficating any less natural than feeding a child? (aside from the health issue, but then again, babies do this in public and I have had customers when I was a waitress complain about a baby's dirty diaper...)

It's not any less natural. But you don't deficate in public. You eat in public.

You seem to be equating breasts with something other than feeding child, which probably most would in today's society, but the truth is their first and foremost function is feeding.

Don't get me wrong the other uses are great, but I'm not going to let that stop them from their true purpose.
