Since it’s not the first time Covert has posted breastfeeding photos, she told BuzzFeed News she was “shocked” when she woke up the next morning to see the post had gone viral. 

“I made the silly face because it’s literally not a big deal to feed your baby,” the 21-year-old said. “It’s just a breast; that’s what God gave me to use when baby is hungry.”

She told BuzzFeed she’s well aware that lots of moms are scared to breastfeed in public, especially at big events like a wedding.

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