I think this is an interesting story that's caused some debate: http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/education/american-university-professor-breast-feeds-sick-baby-in-class-sparking-debate/2012/09/11/54a06856-fc12-11e1-8adc-499661afe377_story.html
An American University professor's baby woke up with a fever, so she brought her to class. During various parts of the 75 minute lecture, the baby crawled on the floor, put a paper in her mouth, and had to be shooed from an electrical outlet. When the baby grew restless, her mother breastfed her while she continued lecturing.
Needless to say, her actions that day have brought her some unwanted attention from students, the university administration, and now the media.
What do you think you would have done in her situation?
