A mum whose breastfeeding photo was repeatedly reported to Facebook for containing nudity, found a tongue-in-cheek way to respond to those she'd offended - by shielding her baby with a photo of a Victoria's Secret model.

Maria Corry, from Florida, America, uploaded of the shot of her baby hidden behind the lingerie model's portrait along with the caption:
