Breastfeeding is a normal and natural process as everyone gets hungry and babies need to eat more often than most of the adults. However, public breastfeeding has always been a very controversial topic, as the attitudes are different. Some people encourage public breastfeeding, others criticize moms who nurse their babies in public.

We all saw those negative comments and rage over photos of women feeding their babies in plain sight. Many people don't understand that breastfeeding mothers have a right to feed their babies in public. Sometimes it is hard to believe that the places where public breastfeeding is considered normal actually exist.

One proud mom decided to make a difference. The woman who visited a wedding in Germany proved that breastfeeding is completely normal everywhere.

Naomi Jael Covert's post

When a 21-year-old German mom posted a photo of herself breastfeeding her baby, she didn't expect that it went viral. She also didn't know that the picture would work as a sort of banner against people who criticize breastfeeding in public.

Naomi Jael Covert is a full-time mommy from Vilseck, and her provocative post left social media users divided. The mom wrote about her experience of breastfeeding in public. She added that it is perfectly normal in Germany.

Many people supported the mom of the 10-month-old baby for this brave act! They said her picture erased the stigma of public breastfeeding.

Later Naomi told Buzzfeed:

It’s just a breast; that’s what God gave me to use when baby is hungry.

Naomi made a funny face in the picture. She wanted to show how natural breastfeeding is. She insisted that it was really not a big deal. And we agree with her!

However, some commenters recommended Naomi to 'throw blanket on' or 'hide under a rock'.

Such public reaction surprised Naomi. Later, Covert shared another photo of her husband and his buddy joking about her viral post.

Naomi also admitted that sh breastfed her child at the church ceremony because it is absolutely normal and doesn't require special preparations.

We have no reason to disagree. And this wonderful story empowers women to live motherhood on their own terms.
