Hello.

I document life chasing three young children, renovating a house, traveling in an Airstream and just being me.

I hope you stay and explore!

Breastfeeding at Disney World

Breastfeeding at Disney World

Breastfeeding in public can feel overwhelming. Especially, if that public place happens to have thousands of other people visiting from all over the world. Disney World gives breastfeeding mothers lots of options, from Baby Care Centers to park benches the choice is yours. 

Disney World has done a really great job with their Baby Centers and if you happen to be near one that is my favorite place to take a break to nurse the baby. Disney is distracting for little ones, they really have a hard time focusing on the milk... do you blame them? It's exciting! Each park has a Baby Care Center that features a nursing room, a changing table and basic baby supplies (for a cost.) They have excellent A/C and they have a small room, usually with a TV playing Disney movies for older siblings to relax.

If you aren't near a baby care center then no worries. Florida has a nifty law that protects breastfeeding mothers and allows you to fill that baby up with mommy milk wherever and whenever. Disney has a lot of benches about so find a shaded one, if you can, and take a break. I have older kid also, I like to give them a snack at the same time and have them take a break with me. That way everyone has their belly filled and they stay hydrated. (I usually snack/get a drink also.)

Using a baby carrier (like a Tula or Ergo) at Disney can make nursing on the go really easy... I have been known to get on a ride ("It's a Small World") just to nurse the baby. I leave the little one wrapped up in the carrier and then I enjoy the dim lighting and air conditioning.

I have never had an issue breastfeeding in public at Disney so relax and enjoy your day! It's important to do what makes you comfortable and keeps baby hydrated.
