My daughter is 13 months old and I have taken her to several restaurants...probably not any that would be considered 'upscale', but not just fast food places either. She has sat in a high chair since she was old enough to. I don't have a problem with taking my child anywhere I go, simply for the fact that I can bring along her diaper bag with snacks, a sippy cup, and small toys to keep her occupied. I wouldn't take her anywhere super fancy or anything like that, just because I don't go to places like that. I've never had a problem with someone being upset with her behavior, she's always pretty good when we go out to eat. However, I do feel that if we are in "family" type restaurant (like we usually are) and she's not being OVERLY disruptive, and someone is upset by her behavior, then perhaps THEY should move. Now, I don't mean if my child is screaming her head off or throwing something...but if she's just whining or quietly crying or fussing, then that's normal and people should expect that.
