Out and About
Running errands is easy with a breastfed baby! You won't have to pack bottles of formula, so you can even stay away from home longer than planned. Your breast milk is always available at the perfect temperature for your baby. Just grab some diapers and go!
If you feel awkward or embarrassed breastfeeding around others, try practicing first in the comfort of your own home. Breastfeed in front of a mirror or with a friend or family member. Practice makes perfect – the more familiar you are with breastfeeding your baby, the easier it will get to do it anywhere!
Once you are ready to try it outside your home, it might be a good idea to ask your peer counselor to go with you. Ride the bus, go to the park, or explore the mall together. She can give you tried and true tips for discreet breastfeeding in public.
