Mom ordered to cover herself up when breastfeeding

At first glance, it looks like a harmless photo of a woman breastfeeding her baby. Look closer, though, and you’ll see the hidden detail that led this picture to go viral.

 

Breastfeeding is a natural and beautiful process that helps create intimacy and bonding between the mom and her bundle of joy.

Feeding babies whenever and wherever they are hungry is something mom’s shouldn’t feel bad about, but sadly, there are people out there who give them a hard time as they believe feeding babies in public is not appropriate or acceptable if they don’t use a cover.

 

Back in 2018, Melanie Dudley, a mom of a 3-month-old baby, was at a restaurant with her family and some friends when the little one started crying for food. Without hesitation, Melanie, who is from Texas, started breastfeeding her son. And although everyone was fine with that, it looked like a stranger who was sitting on the next table was uncomfortable with this mom not being covered while breastfeeding.

He approached Melanie and asked her to cover up. And well, she did just that, but in a manner that stranger expected.

”I was on vacation in Cabo San Lucas with my entire family, and a man asked me to cover myself. I’m usually discreet but we were seated in the back of the restaurant,” Melanie told Yahoo.

“I did have the cover on, but it was so hot. It was like, 95 degrees, and my little baby was sweating,” the Texan told TODAY.

“I said, ‘You know what? I’m on vacation, I’m taking this off.’”

Melanie took the cover and put it on her head instead, having the entire restaurant bursting out in laughter.

”I just put it over my head. I don’t know why. It wasn’t like a salacious fight or anything. That was just my response. I had no words, so I thought, I’ll just cover my head instead,” the woman explained.

A woman who witnessed the entire thing, Carol Lockwood, took a photo of Melanie and shared it online with the caption, “I’ve never met her, but I think she’s AWESOME!!! (Please share! With permission, I’ve made this post public — I’m SO over people shaming women for nursing!!!” In no time, the photo was shared 225,000 times and counting.

A great number of people stood my Melanie’s side and supported what she did.

We truly believe that breastfeeding is the most normal thing and no mom should feel ashamed for giving food to her baby in public.
