2. There is a nice picture of her smiling with officials.

I can't help but wonder if this happened in the US - might the officer have been fired?

3. I saw the photo! It was lovely.

I don't know what would have happened here.



I would hope that the officer would be praised for helping to save a young vulnerable life.

4. I would too. But I think it would depend on who her colleagues are.

Breast feeding of often shunned in the US.

8. Not just the US. I was told by an officer in London.

While waiting in a London train station breastfeeding my son while COVERED with a blanket, I was told by an officer that I could not do that in public and that I had to go to the restroom to breastfeed my baby!! That officer must have stared at me a little while to have even concluded that I was nursing. My son's feet were dangling from beneath the blanket.

It was late night and the stinky restroom was practically dark. I fumed. I was exhausted since we had just returned from France, a day-long trip by train from the Alsace region, and had to make another leg of the trip up to Cambridge to our flat.

I had never imagined that the English would've have been that damn prudish. I had never been told while nursing in public, always under a blanket, here in the States to get myself out-of-sight.

The French, of course, did not have a problem with my breastfeeding in public. Always covered, of course.

This happened in 1990.

7. The do-gooders here would insist she be demoted.

However, we're such an advanced society most have an iPhone and a Facebook account and we're soon getting a Space Force.

But, show a breast and off to the dungeon with you.......
