I don't doubt all the scientific studies that show the benefits of breastfeeding... but I don't want to watch.

More than two dozen mothers staged a breastfeeding "nurse-in" at a Starbucks Corp. store in Maryland over the weekend in an effort to get the world's largest coffee shop chain to adopt a policy allowing breastfeeding in all its U.S. stores.

Lorig Charkoudian, who organized the event, said on Tuesday that she began her quest a month ago when she was nursing her 15-month-old daughter at the store in Silver Spring, Maryland, and was asked by a Starbucks employee to cover up with a blanket or breastfeed in the bathroom.

Is that really so unreasonable? Furthermore, is it healthy to be chugging espresso while nursing? Look, I know it's natural and all -- yippie -- but am I the only one who's a little uncomfortable when some woman whips it out and stuffs it in her baby's mouth? Or am I being unreasonable?
