Facebook Post Goes Viral with Thousands of Shares and (Mostly) Supportive Comments.
A Mom from Austin, Texas who was told to cover up while she was breastfeeding did exactly what she was asked. But, it’s the way she did it that’s grabbing attention.
Melanie Libson Dudley was on vacation in a restaurant in Cabo San Lucas when her 3-month-old son was clearly showing signs he was hungry. As can be the case in Mexico, it was extremely hot at the time, with temperatures reaching to 95 degrees. With her back to the restaurant’s other patrons, she decided to go ahead and feed her child.
What happened next was perfectly captured by a friend in Dudley’s dinner party. Carol Lockwood shared this post to Facebook.
Although this hilarious Mom was on vacation, it’s important for parents (and everyone else!) know the laws around breastfeeding. The fact is that breastfeeding in public is legal in all 50 US states. In honor of August being National Breastfeeding Month, USA Today recently published an article helping Moms to know their rights.
