Breastfeeding Mom Had Best Response EVER When Asked To Cover Up In a Museum

Share on Facebook

It’s no secret that breastfeeding draws controversy from all corners of society. From the grocery store checkout lady to the mailman, everyone’s got an opinion on the world’s oldest form of nourishing a new baby. And don’t even get me started on the Internet. Lactation warriors are as plentiful as varieties of nipple shields.

Recently an unnamed woman, who goes by the Twitter handle Vaguechera, stated that a London museum asked her to cover herself while she was breastfeeding her baby. Her response? Hilarity, of course.

After being addressed, Vaguechera was quick to point out on Twitter that, while she had certainly exposed herself for a purpose, the building she was standing in was full of…ahem…like-minded ladies.

Stop the presses. Apparently some of the greatest sculptors the world has ever known, as well as whoever constructed that stunning fireplace, have never heard of nursing covers.

Lunch by a marble torso? Well, I never.

What lends this story extra charm is Vaguechera’s ability to make light of an awkward situation; no one likes having their chest singled out in public. But what do people like?

And women took to Twitter to voice their support for Vaguechera.

It would’ve been super easy to let an incident like this shut down Vaguechera’s whole outing, but she put her bust…I mean best foot forward, and had an amazing time at the museum.

The lady does not disappoint.

Plus, she did it in a funny way, which always helps with Twitter; they love the jokes.

Twitter voiced their support, but now the ball was in the museum’s court.

All’s well that ends well, I guess? She states that she simply wanted to call attention to the incident, because embarrassment is a huge factor that influences far too many women to quit breastfeeding altogether.

But things have been cleared up and Vaguechera isn’t holding any ill will.

And a few people pointed out that the museum employee was actually breaking the law.

The museum was clearly in the wrong, but was the apology enough?

Hilarious, smart, and compassionate, (not to mention being a bit of a breastfeeding Internet hero), Vaguechera seems to have it all…except for a nursing cover, which she obviously doesn’t need.
