Canadian mum captures beautiful parenting moment at wedding

Wedding photographer Lana Nimmons captured the heartwarming moment when Canadian mum breastfed her nine-month-old daughter during her own wedding ceremony.

Christina Torino-Benton, 30, explained, "I tried for maybe two minutes to allow some family members to calm her down, but having missed her nap, and in that heat, it wasn't going to happen. There was no question. I had to nurse, and I wasn't hesitant about it at all."

She decided to share the picture on Breastfeeding Mama Talk on Facebook, generating more than 8k likes in under a week and was featured in People magazine.

"It didn't cross my mind not to nurse her while it was happening," Mrs Torino-Benton told the BBC. "It was the only thing to do, really."

The image was captioned, "Talk about feeding anytime & anywhere. That moment when you're getting married and your baby gets hungry ;) feeling SO proud of myself! Fighting that good fight!"

The picture generated hundreds of mums to post their own similar moments.
