Mom Shamed For Breastfeeding at Disneyland
Mom's Message For 2 Women Who Publicly Shamed Her For Breastfeeding at Disneyland
When it comes to breastfeeding her 10-month-old son, Brittni Medina doesn't shy away from making sure her baby gets all the nutrients he needs, whether people are watching or not. But after her husband captured the unsuspecting reaction from two nearby women, the protective mama took the shamers to task in a Facebook post on Breastfeeding Mama Talk.
"So we are [annual passholders] and go to Disney often," she wrote. "Well my little man is 10 months and [breastfeeding]! 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!"
Characters of the day, indeed!
Although the photo looks pretty candid, Brittni explained how that actually wasn't the case at all in an interview with POPSUGAR: "I actually stepped a little over to get them in the picture because they were talking loudly saying how I should go to the restroom to feed. I was happy my husband could capture me and my son happily feeding and I thought the looks on their faces were priceless. I mean, how could they be so mad?"
Brittni believes that in this day and age, people are going to complain no matter what you do, so you might as well stick with what makes you happy. "I covered with my first son, but honestly people will complain no matter what you do!" Preach, sister.
