An unapologetic mum who was shamed for breastfeeding her tot at Disneyland launched an incredible comeback against her critics.

Brittni Medina took to Facebook on Sunday to share a “peep of her haters” who made “snarky comments” towards her, as she nursed her hungry ten-month-old.

Initially, the mum-of-two explained she was forced to breastfeed because her tot had grown hungry, after she spent a long time in a queue for a family photo.

Refusing to lose her spot, Ms Medina began to openly feed him, since she has become “comfortable feeding anywhere” since his birth.

Instead of feeling self-conscious, or upset by their remarks, Ms Medina stood in front of the two women and took a photo of herself, smiling as she nursed her child.

In her post she said:

“These women were making snarky comments so I moved from my spot to catch a picture with these characters.

“Not for attention for me but attention to the fact NO WOMEN SHOULD BE SHAMED FOR FEEDING THEIR BABY UNCOVERED.”

She posted her fury on a public breastfeeding group and remarked that she and her husband will continue to visit the theme park because they are annual pass holders.

Her post has generated thousands of comments on Facebook. Some applauded her bravery and told her to “keep up the great work”.

    I get so annoyed seeing mothers being critized for breastfeeding in public! There are less than a handful of states who have not legalized breastfeeding in public. If you can feed your formula fed baby in public I should be able to feed my breastfed baby ; I don’t criticize people for giving their child formula therefore don’t criticize me for breastfeeding

      I feel the exact same way! I got the nastiest look in a Burlington store because I had my daughter under my big baggy sweater feeding her like why does it matter you guys get to eat when you want why can’t breastfed babies!

    A breast feeding mom is like a dog feeding her puppies outside. Thats not gross is normal thing you dont want the mother to starve the baby.

    Yeah right mommy brittni. You shouldn’t be ashamed in breastfeeding your baby in public for you’re doing it not for your own good but for the baby. If I where also in your situation, I will also do the same, breastfeed my baby even in public place.

    I breastfeed in public but I also cover out of respect for my daughter and myself. Some people go too far in my opinion

    Why do people think it’s right to criticise women who publicly breast feed? I mean it’s apart of motherhood & no one would wanna watch their child being hungry & not feed him or her. You’re a proud mom, continue being the woman you are!

    She’s feeding her child and shouldn’t be critized about that! I understand u should cover up a bit sometimes but moral of the story is she is feeding her child and there is nothing wrong with that !

    I feel like she should be able to feed her child anywhere as long as she’s covered up ! Because when a baby is hungry they need to eat and she can pop out that boob

    Never be afraid to nurse in public. If people don’t see it , it will never be normalized. Breastfeeding isn’t just about the milk. It is also about love.

    Breastfeeding is a beautiful thing it’s the connection between mothers and child so no one should ever feel the need to shame someone for something so natural and beautiful

    Breastfeeding is a wonderful and natural thing,however I think that some women over do the public display. I publicly breastfeed but out of respect for myself and others I cover up with a blanket.

    Personally I have never breastfed my child out in public without a cover, but if I needed to feed my child and didn’t have a cover, I definitely would go without. I don’t see any harm or anything wrong with feeding your child. By any means necessary, my child will eat whenever and wherever she is hungry. I would never not let my child eat because of what others think is “right” to them. Breastfeeding is a beautiful natural thing. I think all women should at least try it. If they were hungry, they wouldn’t want to starve! Can’t knock it til you try it. And I wouldn’t dare feed my child in a restroom (public or not). Restrooms are filthy. How about you try eating in the restroom .

    Never in my life I have criticized a mother breastfeed in public. Honestly, I am jealous of mothers who breastfeed their babies because in my experience, I only breastfed my baby for 2 months. I think breastfeeding in public should be just a normal scenario. I salute this mother for not being ashamed of breastfeeding! ❤️
