A breastfeeding mom was told to cover up at a restaurant and her reaction was priceless. What do you do when you get an ignorant request, you come back with a clever obedience.
Instead of arguing with people this mom did just what she was told. She pulled a blanket over her head and covered up. Melanie Dudley, a mother of three from Austin, Texas, was at a restaurant when she started to feed her 4-month-old baby. “I was on vacation in Cabo San Lucas with my entire family and a man asked me to cover myself,” she told Yahoo Lifestyle. “I’m usually discreet but we were seated in the back of the restaurant.”
4-month-old So Dudley asked her husband to hand her a cover and instead of covering her chest, she tossed it over her head.
Someone captured a picture of the mother. The photo was shared on Facebook by Carol Lockwood, who is a family friend.
Carol 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!!!” Lockwood wrote.
She also commented that it was 90 degrees out and “extremely humid” out at the time.
The photo of Dudley has been received 100,000 likes and shared 181,000 times since it was posted on July 31.
