Woman's Disneyland breastfeeding image goes viral

LOS ANGELES (WVUE) - A woman took to social media after she felt she was shamed for breastfeeding her baby at Disneyland in California. Her post has gone viral.

The woman said her son is 10-months-old, so she is comfortable feeding him anywhere.

The mother, Brittni Medina, noticed two women, who seemed appalled by the woman breastfeeding in the open.

"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," Medina said in her Facebook post.

She said the ladies looked so angry, she asked her husband to take a picture "not for attention for me but attention to the fact NO WOMEN SHOULD BE SHAMED FOR FEEDING THEIR BABY UNCOVERED."

Disney released a statement to NBC4 in Los Angeles in response to the breastfeeding controversy: "In accordance with California law, mothers are welcome to breastfeed children at Disneyland Resort, and we have two Baby Care Centers available in our theme parks as well, with additional amenities for parents of infants and toddlers."

The Facebook post has had more than 1,000 shares and 8,000 reactions.
