Disneyland is ‘the happiest place on earth’, or so the story goes. But it turns out the sight of a woman breastfeeding in public is enough to wipe the smile right off some Mickey-loving faces.
US mother of two, Brittni Medina, has gone viral in parenting circles after she managed to capture exactly that while on a recent trip to the Californian themepark.
The 24-year-old was standing in a long line for a photo of Disney Christmas decorations when her 10-month-old son became hungry.
As an attachment parent, Medina wrote on Facebook, “We’re pretty comfortable feeding anywhere; any way.”
And so she did. Right then and there, in the line.
“Well, these ladies were so angry [sic] by it, my husband just had to take a picture. Peep the haters.”
Medina shared the image to ‘Breastfeeding Mama Talk’ Facebook group, and while thousands cheered her on, plenty sided with the women in her photo.
The post was inundated with outraged comments, accusing her of being “an attention whore”, “disgusting” and “a vile piece of trash”, among other even less-savoury things.
