Quite a way to ring in wedding season.

Remember that Australian mom that went viral for her casual public breastfeeding photo taken at her sister’s wedding? Well, it seems weddings are becoming the hot spot to do that because another woman has gone viral for the same thing.

Naomi Jael Covert, a 21-year-old full-time army wife from Vilseck, has the Internet buzzing after she posted a picture of herself breastfeeding her 10-month-old at a wedding. Take a look at the photo below thanks to Covert’s Instagram:

This German Woman Went Viral For Breastfeeding Her Baby At A Wedding


The photo blew up and racked up over 12,000 likes after Empowered Birth Project shared it on their Instagram.

While the reaction has mainly been positive, Covert says she is surprised at the negative backlash she has received; comments like “hide under a rock,” or “throw a blanket on.” But Covert says that the other wedding guests didn’t have an issue with it: “It’s just normal — you have conversations with people while feeding the child” she says. “It is nothing sexual. It’s just another person eating.”

And something tells me that “person eating” went for seconds.

And hey, here’s more of Covert:

Hair needs washed. Make up needs to be put on. BUT I really don’t want to. It’s cold and grey outside and I hate weather like that this is probably the last day of being “Tan” since this spray tan wears off slowly . Oh well. We just gonna embrace the whiteness nooooot. This body was brought to you by @kayla_itsines BBG 1.0 & 2.0 Wetter ist echt SO grausig heute.

This is what the finished 1.0 2.0 #BBG from @kayla_itsines looks like! • baby is 10 months •Iam Breastfeeding • I don’t count calories • I don’t always eat clean but like 80% at the time I honestly still feel too skinny because I really want to grow a bigger butt and thicker thighs but the muscle tone is good right now Should i do the 1.0 again ? WHO else is starting #bbg1 or starting over ? yay! @kayla_itsines 2.0 endlich vollendet Ich fühl mich gut, nur immer noch ein bisschen zu dünn die Beine und der Po müssen noch wachsen Soll ich 1.0 nocheinmal machen ? Wer wiederholt ? Oder was wäre noch interessant auszuprobieren? #bbggirls #bbggermany #bbgdeutschland #healthy #fitfam #fitmotivation #toned #mamaleben #instamood #instamamagang #bbgcommunity #bbgfam #bbgprogress #progress #progressnotperfection #fitspo #fitchicks #fitness #abs #gains #tanned #girlswithmuscle #girlswholift #probroarmy #fitmom #fitnessfreak
