Official Breast Feeding Support Thread for WDW Parks



This is NOT a place to debate breastfeeding in public, but a safe place where we can share our stories, tips and pictures of breastfeeding at Walt Disney World.

So post a picture, share a story, give advice about 'best locations' or favorite shirts/bras ........


Let's create a wonderful community here of breastfeeding Disers!



Wonderful website called the Florida Breastfeeding Coalition

A mother may breastfeed her baby in any location, public or private, where the mother is otherwise authorized to be, irrespective of whether or not the nipple of the mother’s breast is covered during or incidental to the breastfeeding.

What a nice thread idea! I'm past my BF days, but we took DS on a few trips while he was still nursing. I found some of the best spots to nurse were in cool, dark shows like Carousel of progress, American Adventure, and Hall of Presidents! It was better than trying to nurse outside where it was hot and sticky! I liked the Baby Care Centers, too, but they weren't always convenient. I kind of wish they had two locations per park for those. I ca't wait to hear more great BF stories and ideas!

I too am beyond my breastfeeding days. My boys are 6 and 3. But I am a breastfeeding advocate and found that the topic of breasfeeding came up a lot on other threads, but there was no centralized 'safe' place for people to come together and share.

Another great idea would be for people to share their FUNNY WDW BF stories.....!

Great idea. Baby number 2 is due in July and we will be taking him to DW in October and I fully intend on BF him there so any tips would be most welcome.

This makes me smile. My upcoming trip will probably be the first that I haven't nursed on. Just two places come to mind.

The Laugh Floor - nice and dark theater, until they shine the light on you. I had just finished and covered up, but kept wondering what might be hanging out.

Buzz Lightyear - they deleted our picture. We wouldn't buy it anyway, but spent some time looking for it.

I have never breastfed at Disney but will get my first chance this December (with our 3rd baby)! I have breastfed my other 2 so I don't think the third will be a big deal.

I remember the first time I nursed in public with my first child, my husband caused a big scene running in circles around me while I nursed making sure nothing was showing. People where so distracted by what he was doing they didn't even noticed me! (Thankfully he quickly calmed down)

It also makes me laugh to think about all the cover ups I HAD to have. Some of them looked like I had a curtain rod and curtain around my neck. People would stare - not because I was breast feeding, but because they where trying to figure out what I had on! (by the time my 2nd was weaned I was only using a receiving blanket)

I can't wait to hear all the other breast feeding stories and Disney tips!

Great idea!!! I am pregnant with our second child, due in August and we are planning a family trip to WDW in January and I will be nursing DS. DD is almost 3 and we traveled with her when she was 6 months and I nursed everywhere. It was November so it was cool enough to just sit on the benches......so looking forward to nursing another little one soon

Tips on breastfeeding at Disney - after having my second, I wore nursing shirts all of the time. For me it was so much easier then having to pull my shirt up or down and having my tummy or chest exposed.

As for where, pretty much anywhere, but I prefer the slow rides and the theaters.

DS is almost 15 months but is still nursing about three times a day. I'm subbing to this thread because if he is still nursing in September it will be nice to hear pointers and experiences of from people who have been there done that at WDW.

So, I will make a note of the spot light at The Laugh Floor! That is so funny!

I have heard of pictures being deleted because of vulgar gestures or PDA - I guess they thought you where being sneaking and trying a new way to flash the camera.

Yay for BFing support!
We had a lovely hour this spring on the MK train circling the park while DD nursed and napped. I find that anything where people face forward/the same direction and has a focal interests works great. Things with 3D glasses are even better! Country Bear Jamboree, Muppets, Carousel of Progress, Great Movie ride and such have all been favorites.
I did tuck her under a pasmina while standing in line in the Judges Tent after a threat of meltdown. She was a heavy haul by the end!

See? Those movie reels they play suck everyone in. No one gave me a second glance I do second wearing a nursing tank under your regular shirt. It's so much easier with you have no peekaboo skin!
