Sure it was unpleasant for all involved. Traveled abroad recently and every single airport had massive breastfeeding areas designated. Happy to see the progress and happy you got a new seat that made you happy@

Yes a "trap" as you tried to generalize something. Jeeeez you don't know if I'm American, a woman, was breastfeeding my OWN child on the plane. Get off your pedestal.

You're acting like a child! Just asking what was more uncomfortable for you. Idiot.

Sure. You took my questions as a 'trap' when my interest was more on how many Americans view breastfeeding. Nothing more. Like I said maturity at its best.

OW1 turns the trap into a trap! Trap-ception 😂😂

I found out today that my employer doesn’t offer any paid parental leave (maternity or paternity). This isn’t a major issue now, but my wife and I are planning on trying in a year or so from now. How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.
