Out and about with baby

  • Wear clothes that work, two piece outfits, stretchy tops, tops that unbutton from the bottom,

  • Wear a cardigan to help cover up

  • Scarves or muslins can are good for keeping things under wraps

  • Practice feeding in front of a mirror at home-it’s amazing what you cant see

  • Find a place to feed before your baby gets really hungry

  • Sit out of the way, with your back to the room

  • Use whoever is with you (or your pram) as a screen

  • Nip back to the car for a quick feed

  • If people make comments deal with it by totally ignoring them, calmly explain you are doing the best for your baby, make a joke about the situation, tell the manager of the store you are being hassled

  • The more you feed out and about, the more confident you will become

  • Don’t be surprised some people may not even notice

  • Remember you’re doing this for the most important person in your life-your baby
