Wow....

I would have just lost it. Also, if invited over to her house for lunch I politely decline.

I know some people get a bit too "freaked out" over a woman breast feeding (while using a cover up) but this is ridiculous, unappetizing and unsanitary.

I don't care what country you are from or what training method you are using, this is ridiculous, and I can't see any sane person endorsing it inside or outside the home.

I don't think I'd want to sit in those chairs after the kids were there.

Take care,
Mike

Not only is this breaking many health codes, grossing out the diners, I would think that if any Chester Molester were within sight, it made his day! This Mother needs her head examined,

Not that I care to debate it, but as far as the molester comment - just for the record there was a time when lots of kids in America walked around naked openly around the house or at beaches, etc. And they still do it in Europe. Any child five or under is not considered a sexual object.

This town of Lehi (I have been there) is a backwoods Mormon town (and no, not typical Mormom any more than the Applachians are normal Americans) where people are raised very much in old-school Americanism. They do not have nightclubs, videogames, even movie theaters. So, while this was stupid from a poop aspect, the nudity angle in a way is sort of innocent in that the mother really didn't know how better.

Modern Americans are uniquely hung up on nudity - more so than they were 100 years ago, strangely enough - just to be clear. All the magazine covers in Europe (Vogue, Elle, etc,) feature topless women every month.

It is much more the poop aspect of this situation that freaks me out, but not so much the nudity.

This, along with blowing your nose at the dining table should be done in the bathroom. Wow!!!

Paul I understand what you mean......I have many pictures of myself topless as a kid,and would have no issues with my grandkids running around like this at home, but, in this day and age, I would need to have the kids properly dressed for whatever activity they are doing, outside the home...

Having a fully naked child in a restaurant, is just plain wrong.

Umm....

Yuppers, I have to agree nudity in a restaurant is just plain wrong. Unless there's a pole and free brunch....

This morning I was in the gym that I am a member of . Apparently yesterday afternoon a woman came into the gym with her baby and decided to breast feed there .

Now you might inquire as to how she could enter the premises with the child .Apparently she was able to get in through a back door .

I see no problem at all with a woman discreetly breast feeding a baby in public but to sit a child on a potty chair to take a crap in a public restaurant is the ultimate in dumb!
I can't believe someone didn't summon the manager , who should have had her immediately leave and / or call the authorities. ( Health problems to start with )--
This woman seriously needs to be examined to see is she is competent to even have a child or children in her care.
Just when you think we can't go any further down the toilet along comes something else. Guess this will become a fad now !
I can just see the host/ hostess at a restaurant-- "Good Evening Mrs Dumb--I see you have 3 kids-- would you like the bowel movement section or the regular seating area? Oh the crapping section ?? --how many potty seats will you need??"

Another question, why would she even carry around a potty seat to begin with?

And the problem with that is....................................?

Are there specific rules about no babies in the facility?
Did she use a cover up or breast feed outside the main areas?

If she was on the treadmill and breast feeding the baby then there is an issue otherwise this is nothing.

Take care,
Mike

I wonder what would have happened, if the 2 little poopers, were victorious in their efforts? What would the "Mom" have done then?

I manage a restaurant with 4 dining rooms. I'm positive anyone on my staff would have noticed that and alerted me, no matter where I was in the building.

The woman would have been asked to leave immediately. Had she refused, the police would have been called - by me.

If a Health Department inspector happened to do a "surprise check", which they do, and witnessed this situation, the restaurant would be closed immediately, no questions asked.

Unhappy

In this day and age, I am just absolutely amazed at what people this is "fine". Even in a 3rd world country, this would not be tolerated. Where do people get the gaul to think that this is appropriate?????
