Dad posts hilarious video to make a serious point about breastfeeding
Breast might be best - but sadly many women feel uncomfortable about breastfeeding in public. After seeing his wife struggle to stay covered up in a restaurant, one dad decided he'd had enough - and made a serious point by eating his own dinner under cover.

Brock Smith, from Florida, was eating out with his wife Lauren, when his 2-month old daughter started getting fussy about having to be breastfed underneath a blanket.
"This evening was abnormally hot, and our daughter Everly was having a rough time latching to my wife because she was hot and uncomfortable under the cover," he told People. "So my wife says, 'Well Brock, would you like to eat underneath a blanket!?' So, trying to find the fun in everything, I threw a blanket over my head for the rest of my meal and dessert."
Lauren recorded him and then shared the video on Facebook to make a point about the hardships of breastfeeding in public.
"As a dad and a husband, I've had enough of this asinine argument," Brock posted.
"We hear horror stories all the time about the harassment and looks that they receive. [My wife] has never been shamed directly, but as her husband, I see the looks, and being in tune with my wife, I know she is uncomfortable with doing it publicly."
During the video, he's heard saying: "I wish I didn't have to eat with a blanket over my head... maybe I should just go sit in the toilet," and then later adding. "I can't see anything."
