Breastfeeding in Public

(0 reviews)

You know that breastfeeding is good for your baby. But as a new mother you may be worried about breastfeeding your baby in a public place.

Monday, March 27th, 2017

Don’t restrict going out because you are nervous or shy about breastfeeding your baby outside the house. Follow these tips to feel comfortable:

  • When going out, choose a place that is likely to have cosy, hidden seating areas such as a quiet restaurant or café.
  • Wear clothes specially designed for breastfeeding with clever openings.
  • Always carry a shawl when you go out. You can place it over your shoulder and the baby can feed underneath, away from the public eye. It can also serve as a
    blanket when the baby is asleep.

    While using a shawl, blanket or sling, make sure the baby’s nose and mouth are not blocked and he or she has enough room to breathe.

  • A sling or baby carrier works as a convenient breastfeeding camouflage.
  • Public places like airports, hospitals and some malls have private feeding rooms
    that you can use.

Nursing in public may seem intimidating or embarrassing at first. But with time, you will gain confidence and know exactly where to go, what to wear and what
accessories to carry.
