Baby Loves Disco

It’s hip, it’s hot! Babies are rocking to beat of the 70’s and 80’s in the trendiest night clubs across the country. Baby Loves Disco is a dance party featuring real music played by real DJs. Night clubs are opening their doors for this afternoon disco party. In addition to the 70s and 80s music, there are activities like bubble machines, egg-shakers, a chill-out room (with tents, books and puzzles), and diaper changing stations. Healthy snacks are offered for those who have shaked their Huggies, Pampers and Luvs covered booty, and for those who have worked up an appeitite watching the booty shakers. It’s a great social activitity for baby and parents.

This disco craze was started by Heather Murphy, a professional dancer who was looking for something different to do with her toddler. The concept was an immediate success. It gave the parents an opportunity to mingle, dance, and have fun with their toddlers.

Baby Loves Disco is taking place coast to coast. Check out the 2007 Baby Loves Disco calendar for the next hot spot.

Mother Removed From Plane for Breastfeeding

A mother, her husband, and baby were removed from a Delta airlines flight because a flight attendant believed she wasn’t covered enough while breast-feeding. The mother states she was seated by the window in the next-to-last row, her husband was seated between her and the aisle and no part of her breast was showing. The flight attendant offered her a blanket; however, she declined and told the flight attendant that she had a legal right to breast-feed her baby. The flight attendant wanted the head of her 23-month old covered.

Let the sega begin! The flight attendant requested that the family be removed from the plane. Rather than cause a scene, the family obliged. They’ve decided to fight back. They filed a complaint with the Human Rights Commission in Vermont against Delta Air Lines and Freedom Airlines.

With all the controversy over breast-feeding in public should the mother have taken the blanket as the flight attendant requested? Did she irritate the flight attendant with her “I have a legal right to breast-feed my baby” comment? Should we educate flight attendants on that fact that some mothers choose to breast-feed, and it’s not a crime? Did the flight attendant go too far by having the family removed from the flight? If the flight attendant discovered the mother was breast-feeding other passengers would have done the same. With this in mind, did the flight attendant have a right to ask the mother to cover herself and her baby with the blanket? Let us know your thoughts!
