Photo of mom breastfeeding while in line at Disneyland sparks debate

Posted: Updated:
ANAHEIM, Calif. -

A California mom who posted a photo on Facebook that shows her breastfeeding her son while two women look on disapprovingly in the background has received both backlash and support and has gone viral since it was posted last Saturday.

Brittni Medina from Rancho Cucomongoa said her 10-month-old son got cranky while in line for a holiday photo and she needed to feed him. She said she heard two women making comments behind her, saying she should go somewhere private.

"No women should be shamed for feeding their baby uncovered," Medina wrote in her Facebook post. Since she shared the photo it's been shared more than 1,000 times and generated more than 2,000 comments.  She says the responses to the photo has been overwhelmingly positive despite some naysayers.

"People are sending me their pictures of publicly breastfeeding," Medina told KNBC. "It's awesome that other moms feel more comfortable doing something so natural as feeding your kid."

Medina says her family are Disneyland annual passholders and visit the park regularly. She doesn't expect that to change.

In a statement, Disney said: "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."
