Anyone who stares laciviously at a nursing mother needs a punch in the mouth. Maybe a second one to the gut for doing it inside a church.
Delicious response from one male - how delightful ! such chivilary
Thanks for the comments on my comment....
To clarify,,,, I guess I should rephrase and say "murder is wrong a priori"
Also, when I suggested a woman should think about using a bottle for feeding during mass, i didn't think that she needs to do it all the time, just perhaps once a week,,, once a week certainly won't cause any ill health concerns.
and finally regarding leaving children at home, I really think that one is exaggerating if they think that leaving young children at home for a few hours with a babysitter is going to negatively affect them. Also, I think that some women might find attending mass without their babies a more spiritually beneficial experience. But again, I was only suggesting it as an option, not a general rule.
Ignorant response from another.
Use a bottle, use a bottle what a stupid thing to say to a breastfeeding mother - Breastfed babies usually reject bottles (all mine did) good grief!
Use a baby sitter !! In my grandmother's days this may have been possible but I don't know of any wet-nurses in my neighborhood.
Breastfed babies (properly breastfed babies feed on demand)
I apologised once to my dear old Traditional Mass priest for the noise my baby made in Mass and his reply went something like this, (smiling) "When Jesus finally arrives on that holy altar the noise of a child would be great joy to him"
