A woman’s photograph of being shamed for breastfeeding at Disneyland, California, went viral after she posted it to rebuke such treatment.
Brittni Medina was feeding her 10-month-old son at the theme park when she noticed two women who seemed to take offence. ‘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 two women looked so angry, so 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 now has over 8,000 reactions and has a mix of comments in support of Medina and those who agree with the women that breastfeeding should be done in private. It's 2017 and we're still having these conversations.
