An Austin mom, Melanie Dudley, was breastfeeding her son when she was asked to “cover up” inside a restaurant. This is how she reacted, according to a friend who posted a picture of her on Facebook. And the image went viral– with over 200,000 shares.
Carol Lockwood said she’s never met her friend’s daughter-in-law, but felt compelled to share a photo she saw of the mother feeding her baby. Lockwood said, “I’m SO over people shaming women for nursing.”
Breastfeeding in public without a cover is legal in all 50 states.
