Naomi Jael Covert, a 21-year-old from Vilseck, Germany was recently breastfeeding her 10-month-old son, TJ, at a friend’s wedding.

Covert posted a picture of herself on Instagram and it has gone viral since being reposted on empoweredbirthproject’s Instagram account – with over 12,000 likes!

Since then, she has been posting more images of her breastfeeding to try and encourage other mother to feel comfortable doing the same in public.

She told Buzzfeed: “I wanted to show that it’s literally no big deal to breastfeed,” she said, “no matter the circumstances.”

While some commenters were positive about her photo, others wrote negative things like: “hide under a rock” or “throw a blanket on”.
