Restaurant owner criticized for breastfeeding while working12/24/2012
Several diners at Rocco's Ristorante Italiano were disgusted after having to watch the owner's kid have his own dinner. Hannah Gibson was breastfeeding her eight-month-old son, Carson, while she cleared tables at the Nova Scotia restaurant. After the Department of Health received letters of complaint they began an investigation, telling Gibson "Maybe [they] thought milk could get in the food." (Well, that pretty much ruins Alfredo sauce for us.) The food safety officer suggested that she keep her baby and her boobs away from the Bolognese, breastfeeding away from the customers; Gibson says that—despite the "embarrassing" investigation she'll keep bringing Carson to the restaurant.
