A woman in line at Disneyland sparked controversy when she decided to breastfeed her 10-month-old right in the open and a photo of the act went viral.

The woman's name is Brittni Medina and she shared the picture on a Facebook page that is focused on breastfeeding moms. The post shows her standing in line to take a picture when her 10-month-old got hungry. She takes off her top and nurses him right on the spot and you can see angry bystanders pointing and crossing their arms.
Medina smiles for the camera as she feeds her son in the photo which she captioned with, "Well these ladies were so angry by it my husband just had to take a picture. Peep the haters." Comments on the post ranged from "You Go Girl" in support of the woman breastfeeding in public, others called her a "disgusting pig" for creating a negative image of the woman who breastfeeds 'more conscientiously'.
Media says she is thankful for the support, "I've got both negative and positive but the support has outweighed the negative. I'm so proud of all the moms losing the cover. The law fully supports us."

She should at least cover it with breastfeeding scarf. It doesn't look nice, I know the baby must really be hungry, but her child didn't just born today to not be ready for this kind of situation. She just made something to get a negative and positive comments from people. SHE DID THIS TO HERSELF.
Yeah she probably is enjoying all of the attention judging by her multiple paragraphs of updates to the post..
It is wonderful that a child can have breastfeeding available anywhere at anytime. The longer a child can breastfeed, the healthier his system will be. My generation was the first to promote back to nature elements to mothering. Good to see our kids have picked up the baton!
Who gives a shit about a baby being breastfed, its been going on for thousands of years. Only in the U.S. do we look at nudity as purely sexual when in reality it isn't. Keep on feeding moms!
