It is very often that you see women breastfeeding in public which is natural because of the demand of the hungry baby. Many incidents have taken place where a women is asked to cover up while she is breastfeeding.
In this incident the mother of a four-month-old boy was told to ‘cover up’ by a male passerby for breastfeeding her baby at a restaurant in Mexico’s Cabo San Lucas. However the women Melanie Dudley decided to act accordingly and covered up her face. Her partner, as reported by the Independent, clicked the picture of Dudley’s response and it soon went viral.
A family friend Carol Lockwood posted the picture on Facebook and wrote, “A friend’s daughter-in-law was told to “cover up” while feeding her baby, so she did!🤣 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!!!❤️👶❤️ [PS: To reduce speculation: it was a man who asked her to cover up, it was 90 degrees and extremely humid, and, no, she wasn’t in a Muslim country disrespecting traditions.🙄]”
