Texas mom breastfeeds newborn son at a restaurant, then stranger asks her to covver up

It appears to be an innocuous picture of a mother nursing her child at first glance. But if you look closely, you can see the little element that made this photo go viral.


The act of breastfeeding is a wonderful and natural way for a mother and her little one to bond and build intimacy.

Moms shouldn’t feel guilty about feeding their children whenever and wherever they are hungry, but regrettably, some people criticize them because they think it’s improper or unacceptable for them to feed their children in public if they don’t use a cover.In 2018, while dining at a restaurant with her family and friends, Melanie Dudley, a mother of a 3-month-old child, noticed the infant wailing for food. Melanie, originally from Texas, immediately began nursing her son. And while that was great with everyone, it appeared that the stranger seated at the adjacent table was uncomfortable with the mother’s lack of coverage while nursing.



Melanie was contacted by him and requested to hide. She did just that, though not in the way that the stranger had anticipated.”I was asked to cover myself by a man while on vacation in Cabo San Lucas with my whole family. We were sitting at the rear of the restaurant, but I’m generally discrete,” Melanie said to Yahoo.It was really hot, even though I was wearing a cover. The Texan told TODAY, “It was about 95 degrees, and my little baby was sweating.””I said, ‘What do you know?

I’m taking this off; I’m on vacation.

The entire restaurant burst out laughing when Melanie took the cover off and wore it on her head.I simply placed it above my head. I’m not sure why. It wasn’t even close to being a scandalous altercation. That was all I had to say. I was at a loss for words, so I decided to just hide my head,” the woman said.Carol Lockwood, a witness to the entire event, snapped a picture of Melanie and posted it online with the remark, “I’ve never met her, but I think she’s AWESOME!!!”Kindly distribute! I have made this content public with permission. I’m so sick of hearing people shame women for nursing! The picture was shared 225,000 times and counting in no time at all.
