Breastfeeding mom at Disneyland sparks mixed reaction after viral photo

A photo of a local woman breastfeeding publicly at Disneyland has gone viral, sparking both supportive and negative reactions.

Brittni Medina posted the picture on a Facebook page dedicated to breastfeeding moms. In the post, she says that she was standing in line to take a picture when her 10-month-old got hungry, so she took off her top and decided to nurse him.


In the photo, you can see two women in the background, angry - one of them crossing her arms - as Medina smiles at the camera and feeds her son.

"Well these ladies were so angry by it my husband just had to take a picture. Peep the haters," she wrote.

So we are APs and go to Disney often. Well my little man is 10months and BF! So we’re pretty comfortable feeding anywhere; any way. Well these ladies were so angry by it my husband just had to take a picture. Peep the haters😂
Characters of the day😂 Just had to get a picture!


Because people want to act all bent out of shape no I was not walking around feeding him in this moment ( I have tho before and would do it again) I was standing in a very long line to get our picture taken my son got hungry and I wasn’t going to wait in another line again. So I took off my first top and nursed. These women were making snarky comments so I moved from my spot to catch a picture with these characters. Not for attention for me but attention to the fact NO WOMEN SHOULD BE SHAMED FOR FEEDING THEIR BABY UNCOVERED.

Update #2: 

Thank you everyone who has taken the time to message me and show your support! Like anything that is to be normalized in society; it takes time! Yes not everyone agrees. For one I don’t need your approval! Disney policy and the law fully support me. Boobs are not sexual! If you can’t inform your kids a baby is eating that’s not my issue.

Am I normally this “exposed” when I feed my son? No! But not all moments as a mother are glamorous! In this moment he is a big boy and is pulling on my nursing shirt! I never expected the picture to go viral obviously it’s not the best one of me but I love it because again not all mom moments are glamours.

This has reached the women and their family in the photo! A member of the family wrote me stating he was ashamed of his aunts behavior. The younger women commented on an article denying saying anything. Claiming she was tired and did not want to stand in line. She claims she never saw me nurse but watched me put my second top on. I did not put my second top on until it was our turn because I had switched my sons shirt! She made a point to say she was self conscious and all the remarks to her are unnecessary .

What about saying I should have used a restroom? If you have the audacity to say something to a mom standing in line off to the side feeding her kid expect something to happen or be said. Anyways I wrote her asking why she couldn’t apologize or write me instead of lying and crying about the things people said. If you had such a problem with it which is clearly shown you did why not own up to it. 30% of what I read might agree.
