A very special wedding photo of a breastfeeding bride went viral recently. Christina Torino-Benton was getting married in Quebec, Canada, on the 18th of June when Gemma, her nine-month-old daughter with husband-to-be Daniel Benton, got hungry. “The wedding started and she was great through most of it, but a Catholic wedding runs pretty long so she got hungry,” Christina explained “At the church it was like 40 degrees, Gemma was hot, she missed her nap and was overall really crabby.” Christina sat amongst her guests whilst feeding her daughter. During this pause, the image which went viral was snapped by photographer Lana Nimmons. Christina saw it the next day and posted it on the Breastfeeding Mama Talk Facebook page with the words: “That moment when you’re getting married and your baby gets hungry. Feeling SO proud of myself! Fighting that good fight.”
Christina’s words, actions and picture have inspired other women to brides to share their images. You can see the gallery through the link below.
