Last year we posted THIS amazing blog post on nursing in public. If you haven’t seen it…I highly recommend you check it out!
Why is nursing in public such a big deal?? You are provided FOOD for your BABY!!
I could go on a tangent on nursing in public. I will spare you, but leave you with… I firmly believe that every nursing mother should feel comfortable nursing their baby. You cannot stay at home all day, everyday just because you are scared your baby will get hungry. If you do not want to expose yourself, then invest in a nursing cover.
How to feel comfortable nursing in public??
This is all dependent on YOUR personal comfort level.
Here are some suggestions that helped me:
-Find a comfortable seat that faces away from everyone so you don’t feel like you are on display.
-If you are at the mall or store, go to a dressing room.
-If you are at a restaurant, try to sit at a booth so you feel like you have a little more privacy.
-Keep a nursing cover in your diaper bag at all times.
Remember, the more relaxed mommy is, the more relaxed baby can be nursing.
