When I think back to my own parents, they were following Berman's advice years ago. They were never scared to toss me over their shoulder, head home and send me straight to bed if I misbehaved. I remember feeling totally humiliated especially if other people were around.

It's been suggested to me that appropriate, discrete places to feed my baby while out in public are my car and a public toilet. Neither place is comfortable and the latter is certainly far from hygienic. Few adults like eating meals in cars or toilets, and I wonder why they think babies should.
