Purchased for the trip and so worth it. He spent almost all his time in the the carrier and really only came out to nurse. I fed him mostly during the shows. He is a fast little nurser and can be fed and done in less than 10 minutes. Never got (or noticed) any looks. Only once the people sitting beside us seemed worried that he would fuss during Philharmagic. I told them that he'd be eating and quiet and they were pleased.

I only used the baby centre once (in MK) just to check it out. Very nice. Only wish that I had brought my hubby and 3 year old DD to have picnic lunch inside as there was a nice quiet sitting room with some kid books and a disney movie playing. My DD would have enjoyed the downtime.

Overall, it was a great age for travel and I'd highly recommend it / do it again if we have a third.

YAY! So glad you had a great trip! Thanks for sharing!

We just got back last week and it wasn't bad at all. I was bummed about having to stop every once in awhile to nurse but I didn't want to waste any time, lol....so I figured out how to nurse in the beco. It was easy! Changed his diapers in the stroller, only a few times did I change him in the bathroom. Taking a baby is much easier then I thought. Oh wait....forgot about his sleeping schedule being totally thrown off. He didn't sleep very well at night. Probably because the pack and play is a bit more uncomfy then his crib at home. He slept well in the beco during the day though.

P.S. I also seen a few (better then none) other nursing moms at disney as well.

Good to see so many success stories for BFing in Disney.

We leave in less then 3 weeks. I will have DD2 who is 9.5 months while we are there. My only issue with her is she has become SOOO distracted while nursing I just don;t see her doing what she needs to with so much going on!

I saw lots of nursing Mom's while we were at Disney over the weekend. It's so encouraging to see more and more people nursing in public!

You have my full support! Although my babies are babies no more, they were both nursed for 24 months.

Subbing! Just found this thread so I'll have to go back through and read everything, but its great to see so much support! I'm a first time mommy, and our DS will be 9 1/2 months old this September when we take him to WDW for the first time. I was worried how I was going to manage nursing but it seems to be a piece of cake! Thanks for all of the advice!!

Yay! We are taking our dd's back soon and I'm still nursing my 7 month old. We did take her when she was 3 months and I would find a place where there weren't many people around and sit to feed her. I have a nursing cover i use when in "family friendly" places so that kids don't get a peek lol. My 5 yo thinks that when I feed her sister she needs to feed her bullseye horse too! I did have a friendly CM come over to me to congratulate me on nursing in the parks which I thought was awesome. I know they have places for feeding but we all know that it's not always a realistic thing to do with a screaming hungry baby.

I will be nursing my then 17 month old next month anywhere and anytime she pleases. Anyone who tries to discourage me will have a formal complaint filed against them!

I've nursed all over the parks and will be this fall when our newest little one is 5 months old. I think I've only been in the baby centers twice, and once it was just to change a diaper. It is a nice place to change diapers, though.

I end up doing most of my nursing on long rides. The shows are always good, but so is Spaceship Earth, the People Mover, and several others. I'm always afraid to nurse in the Laugh Floor because I don't really want to be on TV. I do take a nursing cover, just in case the baby decides he's done while I'm not paying attention. I usually carry mine in a Sutemi, which is like an Ergo, in the middle, so I don't nurse in there. This time my baby will be little enough to go in my Baby K'Tan, but I've still never figured out how to nurse modestly in it. My tummy always shows, and that just can't happen.

Sorry if this has been discussed already, I wasn't able to read through the whole thread, but I was wondering what nursing covers you ladies use? I absolutely despise the one I have!

I use my baby's head as a cover. I don't cover up. She would never allow it. I am not one to pull my shirt UP though. I pull the neck down and let her access my breast that way. It is so easy. I can't even fathom doing it the other way.
