Mom Who Was Shamed For Breastfeeding At Disneyland Gets Back At Haters By Snapping Epic Pic Of Her Nursing Right In Front Of Them.
On 22nd November 2017
A mom who claims to have been shamed after breastfeeding her son while visiting Disneyland has struck back at her shamers in one awesome picture. Brittni Medina posted a recount of the incident which occurred while visiting Disneyland with her husband and their son.
The only thing more magical than going to Disneyland is visiting the park during the holidays. Sadly, one mother learned that just because it's a family destination that's filled with cheer, there will always be someone with a bad attitude trying to ruin your good time. In this case, it just so happened to be haters that judged her for breastfeeding her child. Undaunted, Brittni Medina simply kept it moving letting her haters hate.
The California mother told interviewers that she is a season pass holder along with her husband and that they were excited to take their 10-month-old to the park to enjoy the holiday season. After standing in line for a very long time while waiting to take Christmas photos, her baby Micah got hungry as babies tend to do. Without even thinking twice about it, Brittni started nursing him while they were waiting in line.
Several women standing behind her in line seemed to have a problem with her feeding Micah. They made faces and told her that she should leave with disgust. Brittni said: “These ladies were seriously saying I should have found a restroom. I covered with my first son and to be honest, people complain and stare no matter what. But I couldn’t believe they were being like this at Disney! It's meant for kids."
Brittni proceeded to ignore the women attempting to bully her and continued feeding her baby. After a few minutes of listening to the women bitch and moan behind her back, she had enough. Brittini posed for an epic photo that her husband snapped, catching the women behind her complaining and turning their nose up at her. She said: "I scooted so they could be in the frame to get a picture. I didn't know my husband actually got them so good -- mid-complaining! I love it because it shows I’m happy and proud to feed my baby even in a crowd! He's happy, my husband and I were happy. It's sad how people get so bothered!"
Sadly, this is not the first time Brittni has dealt with people who tried to confront her about nursing her child in public. She said: "People get so mad anywhere I go. Most smile or look away but almost every time there's the few that look angry or like they saw a ghost. I was tired of hiding to make others happy. My son loves eating whenever. He knows I would never deny him to make others comfortable."
Being shamed for feeding her child wasn't the only thing to shock Brittni. The fact that it was other women that were judging her really bothers her. She said: "I'm sad that especially women are shaming moms for feeding uncovered. I was tired of people being so indirectly rude! So now I don't care; I'll feed whenever and wherever. In a house or on a train; in a car or a plane!"
The strong mother decided that she should share her photo with the hopes that it inspires other mothers to stand up to shamers of all kinds. No matter who they are, or where they are, no one deserves to be made to feel like a bad person for something that isn't wrong and isn't hurting anyone. Brittni said: "I would love for other moms to not have to feel like they have to cover. My sons get hot and stuffy. They need to know it's normal and ok!"
Since sharing the photo online Brittni has seen overwhelming support come flooding in. There are countless positive comments and the message has been shared thousands of times since she posted it on her Facebook for the world to see. Brittni hopes that the message continues to spread and give hope to others around the world. "So many have commented saying they wish they had the confidence. I want them to find it and let it shine! Feed anywhere and everywhere! I took the photo in hopes that it inspires mamas to uncover if they wish! To find the confidence to say, 'Screw everyone else! As long as my baby's happy!'”
Brittni, you are a great mom! Keep up the good work.
