Babies have to eat. Disney Princesses have to browse around Disneyland posing for photos with paying customers.
And thus it was only a matter of time until someone snapped a photo that combines the beauty of breastfeeding with the magic of Disneyland. And guess what, we found that photo.
Mari Villaluna recently went to the Happiest Place on Earth to celebrate her son’s two month birthday. And while her son decided he couldn’t care less about snapping a shot with a Disney Princess, this didn’t stop Belle from wanting to pose with the mini Prince Charming.
When your at #Disneyland celebrating your baby’s 2 month bday and a Princess comes up to take a picture with your child, and your infant is hungry. You feed your baby, smile for the picture and enjoy your magical disney moment while breastfeeding #breastfeedingwithbelle #fedisbest #normalizebreastfeeding #breastfeeding #breastmilk #nursing #breastfeedwithoutfear @empoweredbirthproject #empoweredbirthproject #Disney #crunchymomsofcolor #normalizebfding @thebadassbreastfeeder #babybjorn @babybjorn @bfmamatalk #endthestigma #breastfeedingmommas @stopcensoringmotherhood @breastfeedwithoutfear #stopcensoringmotherhood #Disneyparks @bwibayarea #hungrybabiesgottaeat #boobsareforbabies #nursingatdisney #breastfeedingdisney
And thus Mari continued breastfeeding her crown-clad son and smiled for the camera with Belle. Because no one should miss out on a magical moment with a Disney Princess. Mari shared the photo on her Instagram account with a message on normalising breastfeeding.
“When your [sic] at #Disneyland celebrating your baby’s 2 month bday and a Princess comes up to take a picture with your child, and your infant is hungry,” she wrote in her Instagram post. “You feed your baby, smile for the picture and enjoy your magical Disney moment while breastfeeding.”
My baby also nursed while I took pictures with this princess . I put a royal cape on the baby for this pic. Happy 2 months #tiana #princesstiana #magicaldisneybreastfeedingmoment #breastfeeding #normalizebreastfeeding #normalizebreastfeedinginpublic #breastfeedingmomsofcolor #breastfeedingwithtiana #nursing #babybjorn #Disneyland
It’s a powerful message and one that continues to command the news headlines. Because babies get hungry. And breasts are made for feeding babies. Anytime. Anywhere.
Even at Disneyland.
