Breastfeeding In Public

Breastfeeding in Public

For many mothers, breastfeeding in public can be a daunting task. It’s understandable that you might be feeling uncomfortable when it comes to public breastfeeding. This is why we’ve put together this guide to help answer your questions and provide helpful tips on how to feel more confident while breastfeeding in public.


The Benefits of Breastfeeding in Public.

Breastfeeding in public benefits both you and your baby, but also other mums into the future. For starters, by breastfeeding in public, you are normalising the act of breast feeding publicly, and being encouraging for other mothers. You are also showing that motherhood doesn’t always have to take place behind closed doors. Let's face it, when a baby needs to eat, they need to eat—it shouldn’t matter if it’s at home or out and about.


Additionally, breastfeeding can help boost your baby's immune system because they will consume all the nutrients they need while they feed on demand. When you breastfeed in public, you're allowing yourself an opportunity to bond with your baby while still being able to go about your day-to-day activities. It helps make motherhood more manageable by allowing you the freedom needed for both of you to stay healthy without having to disrupt your daily routine too much.


Tips for Breastfeeding in Public

When it comes time for you and your baby to venture out into the world together, there are several tips that can help make the experience easier and more comfortable for both of you:


• Wear clothing that is conducive for easy access – nursing tops or tank tops with built-in bras are ideal for this purpose! Not only do these types of clothes provide quick access but they also offer more coverage than regular shirts would so that you feel secure and modest while breastfeeding.


• Find a quiet spot – Look around before settling down somewhere so that you don't end up somewhere too crowded or loud - this will help ensure that both mama and baby have an enjoyable experience while feeding. Bring along a muslin or scarf as well so that you can cover up if needed once settled into a spot (not necessary but can help with added comfort).


• Have confidence – Know that what you are doing is natural and something millions of women before have done throughout history! Don't be afraid or ashamed - just stay confident in knowing that what you're doing is important for your little one's health & wellbeing!


As a mum, it's important not just for yourself but for other mums who come after us as well -to become comfortable with breastfeeding in public. With these few tips, hopefully it will become easier over time & eventually become second nature!


There is nothing wrong with feeding where ever and whenever our babies get hungry; no matter where we may be at the moment! So mamas -don't forget to give yourselves credit & pat yourselves on the back every time you step out into the world confidently feeding those sweet little ones! They need us & we need them so let's show them how strong & capable we really are by embracing the beauty of motherhood everywhere we go!
