Mom And Son On Run

    Is there a place in each park where I would be able to breastfeed my baby or should I plan to make frequent trips back to the hotel to feed her?

    Hi Alicia!

    Disney World is a great place to vacation for a breastfeeding mother.  First of all, Florida law is very protective of mothers rights.  You may legally feed your daughter anywhere.  Second, Disney is very family-friendly and you will find baby care centers in each park.  These nice facilities provide a cool and quiet place to nurse your baby, highchairs for feeding solids, changing tables, extra diapers in case you run out, child-sized potties, and much more.  You can find their location on the maps located at the entrance to each park.

    That said, honestly I've only used the baby care centers a handful of times.  I opt to feed my daughters in places like the Hall of Presidents, It's A Small World, The Great Movie Ride, It's Tough to be a Bug...This allowed my daughter to eat without slowing down the rest of the family, and it was easier for me as well to be able to feed on demand.

    You will have no reason to feel self-conscious - there will be many many mothers doing exactly the same thing.  Besides, when you breastfeed discretely no one is the wiser anyway (as I'm sure you well know).  Have a great vacation, and enjoy that little one - they grow up all too fast.  My baby just turned one.  (sniff, sniff)
