When I flew home at New Year’s, the woman sitting beside me breast-fed her baby during the whole flight. It didn’t bother me. I’m all for breast-feeding. My wife breast-fed my son for a long time, and I’m glad she did. I was very supportive (in more ways than one) and helped her all I could. Some people – indeed some husbands – are not so supportive, which is regrettable. And society generally, judging from the recent ongoing controversy over breast-feeding in public, is not supportive either. I don’t know why. As adults we have a choice about how we act or react to certain things. We can either act with equanimity, or we can lose our composure and make a fuss. Adults act with composure, and children often don’t. It makes me think that these people who making such a fuss about breast-feeding in public may be acting like children and not like adults.
