At first glance, this photo may seem innocent, just a mother breastfeeding her baby. But take a closer look, and you’ll notice the hidden detail that caused it to go viral. Find out the full story in the comments section below.

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, “My little baby was sweating and it was like 95 degrees outside.”

“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. The woman said, “I thought I’ll just cover my head instead because I had no words.”

Carol Lockwood, a witness to the entire event, snapped a picture of Melanie and posted it online with the comment, “I’ve never met her, but I think she’s AWESOME!!!” (Please distribute! I’ve made this post public with permission because I’m sick of seeing women shamed for breastfeeding. The picture was shared 225,000 times and counting in no time at all.

Many individuals backed Melanie’s actions and stood by her side.

We firmly think that nursing is the most commonplace behavior and that a mother should never feel guilty about feeding her child in public.
