Breastfeeding mom told to 'cover up' at restaurant responds in unexpected way

Published:

While breastfeeding her baby inside a restaurant, a mom was asked to "cover up."

But instead of covering her exposed chest, which is what the man was referring to, the mom reacted by tossing a blanket over her head.

Carol Lockwood shared the photo of the mom on her Facebook. Lockwood referred to the mother as a "friend's daughter-in-law."

"I’ve never met her, but I think she's AWESOME!!!" Carol wrote. ... "I'm SO over people shaming women for nursing!!!"
