It was a long haul but totally worth it! Some of my favorite tools for that were my Medela PISA backpack and Lanisinoh milk storage bags. I'll be happy to answer any questions about pumping at work and storing milk.

I have a 10 month old who will be turning 1 at Disney! She is nursing exclusively (I am able to stay at home with this baby so I only pump for nights out) with some solids just introduced regularly this month. I am concerned about nursing her at Disney. I read all 60+ pages in two days - what great advice! I do have some questions/issues I was hoping to get some expert Disney NIP advice regarding!

1. I haven't been able to do a lot of baby wearing - my kids are little heaters and even wind up sweating with cuddle time in the rocking chair. My DH is the same way. You can get near any of them and feel the heat coming off of them. The flip side is that they all have great metabolism! I did buy an Ergo and my daughter does fine in it for short periods. I plan on bringing it to Disney for rides (another question) and to try and nurse. Any Ergo nursing tips would be greatly appreciated!

2. Can I take her on rides in the Ergo? Any ride suggestions or hints on this also greatly appreciated!

3. I have a very big bust - DDD normally and up to a J/K when engorged. I am worried about how to handle the peep show so to speak. At home I never cover up and my daughter hates the nursing cover and blankets. My issue is that she is a very active baby who LOVEs to pull off and check out the world around her. With my size, that can create quite a show! I'd be really interested in hearing from others with the same problem.

Thanks in advance, ladies! I appreciate your support!
Hi~ Welcome! Thought Id help answer a few questions if I could!

1. Not sure about a Ergo, as I use a BaliBreeze in the hot weather, its a gauze material and super light weight. Its a woven wrap so you have a learning curve to learn to tie it, but when you do its AMAZING, and much cooler.

2. This question varies. I have read ppl say they were asked to take the baby out. I took my DS#2 when he was around 7mts and I kept him in the wrap on lots of rides and no one sad anything. (Except on ToyStoryMania, I was wearing him facing me and he was sleeping, and the CM asked me to turn him around, which sucked because he woke up) That was the only time that happened. Every other ride was fine and no one said anything about him being in the wrap.

3. Have you tried the loose tank under a tshirt? The top shirt bunches up quite a bit when pulled up and acts as a cover, its nice because its stuck there and little one can't pull it of as its attached! Good luck. Nursing in Disney rocks!

Oooh good idea about the diaper bag. I will have to try that.

I used a very light weight ring sling when we went. Neither of us got hot.
I always wore 2 tops- both very light weight.

What wonderful advice here. We are expecting baby #2 in about a month. My DS (age 6 1/2) was too active to nurse in public. He and I just couldn't make it work. Also my milk dried up at about 7 months. Hoping to have better luck this time around with DD. She will be about 5 months when we visit WDW next year. So I will be coming back here again and again to gain any knowledge I can from you wise ladies. Thank you again for all the wonderful advice already in this thread.

One suggestion to those of you who wear a tank top under your regular shirt-I'm assuming you wear the tank underneath so when you pull up your regular shirt, no one sees your belly and side, etc. I found that I could use my belly band from when I was pregnant. When I was pregnant I wore it low so it covered the bottom half of my belly from the shirts that were too short when my belly got so big. Now when I'm nursing I wear it so it is on the upper half of my belly, like from underneath my breasts to my waist. This way when I lift up my regular shirt I have that protection underneath without having to add the straps and upper part of a tank. Way less hot and less bulky. Those belly bands are really light weight and stretchy and breathable.

I got to nurse my now 2 yo in 2010 in WDW at 5 mo. Planning to nurse the new one in February! He will be almost 6 months. I think my TR will include "nursing around the world"!!

I love this thread! I breastfeed in the parks all the time since we are locals. It is second nature to me. I have figured out that it's easiest for me to wear 2 tank tops, the outer one I lift up, the under one I pull down. Works like a charm. I breastfeed anywhere in the parks where my baby needs to eat. I did a post on my blog about this very subject. Check out the link in my signature Happy Breastfeeding!

Breastfeeding Mom's Yay!

I am still nursing my 11 month old, but I don't think we are going to any Disney Parks anytime soon. He is our first so we have been waiting a bit to take him to Disneyland since it is closer. But it is nice to know there is so much support for Breastfeeding Moms. Our recent trip to Seattle was my first time nurse in a very public place. The plane ride, I got a few stares but no one said anything. It is nice to know that there are baby centers in Disney for the future.

We had another successful trip nursing in the World last month. My then 17month old nursed freely without comment or concern. In fact, on our return flight the flight attendant commended me on sticking with it and told me how she nursed her own daughter until she was 20 months. I love meeting other nursing moms!

Was your baby a lap child or in a car seat? I want to nurse my DS on the plane but were paying for a seat for him.
