When the organizers of the Breastfeeding Mama Talk support group came across a sign telling moms to cover themselves while nursing, they had a brilliant response.

The group shared a photo of the sign on its Facebook page -- along with two pictures of breastfeeding moms ... well, covering themselves.

Thought I would do something different and fun with this!! I have this picture in the comments except it's without the...

Breastfeeding Mama Talk invited other parents to share their own responses with the hashtag #ThisIsHowWeCoverBFMT. Their hilariously spot-on photos did not disappoint. From blankets to shirts to Darth Vader masks, these breastfeeding moms showed that they know how to "cover" in style.


FAN QUESTIONCan we make this go viral! This is awesome. Lol (

One of the "covered" mamas submitted her photo to maternal health and wellness website Pregnancy Corner which then posted the image on its Facebook page. The photo now has almost 200,000 likes and over 320,000 shares.

To add to the hilarity of the situation, several commenters also pointed out that the Spanish translation on the sign is incorrect, as it says "cubieta" instead of "cubierta" and essentially reads, "If you need mom feed yourself please cover. Thank you."
