Tips on Nursing your baby in public.

We are often asked about tips for nursing your baby in public, so we came up with 5 easy tips that I think will help you get a great head start in your breastfeeding adventure.Some cool ideas on how to Nurse your baby in public and feel confident doing it:

1.) Join a Nursing Support group. You will be coached on the correct ways to breastfeed your baby, a lot of these groups also offer grocery shopping lists, nutrition tips and more.
2.) Invest in Nursing Fashion, nursing clothes save a lot of time, energy and headache when you’re trying to focus on your baby. If you have a tight budget, and even if you don’t, investing in a few solid color, neutral toned shirts you can mix and match with bottoms and accessories like pins , scarves, jackets and necklaces will offer you a world of opportunities in looks.
3.) Purchase a Nursing Cover, our nursing covers retail for less than 25.00 and they are priceless when it comes to nursing your baby in public.
4.) Practice, Practice, Practice, you will more than likely not have perfect 10’s the first few times you attempt this very important task in public, so don’t get discouraged if it doesn’t go great the first few times. A great tip, go from smaller groups to larger, maybe test it when you have just one or two friends at home and go from there, like baby steps.
5.) Never make your baby wait! At the first site of hunger, go for it, you’ll be glad you did.

These small tips will help you be confident and find great ways of your own to nurse in public! If you have more tips, please feel free to email them to us! We’ll gladly share your tips as much as we can.
