How To: Breastfeed your baby in public

Breastfeed your baby in public

Nervous about breast feeding in public? You shouldn't be. Breast feeding outside your home doesn't have to be a source of anxiety. Create a calm and modest approach to nursing in public.


You Will Need:
• A sweater, jacket, or light shirt


Step 1: Plan ahead
Plan your trip ahead of time to ensure you are wearing garments that will allow easy access to your breast with minimal exposure.

Step 2: Watch for hunger cues
Watch for your baby's cues for being hungry before the hunger increases and leads to crying or pulling at your clothing.

Step 3: Find a comfortable spot
Find a comfortable place to sit with your baby.

Step 4: Hold your baby close
Hold your baby close to you as you expose the breast for nursing. This will shield your breast from any onlookers.

Step 5: Wrap the garment around yourself
Once your baby has latched onto the breast, wrap your sweater, jacket, or shirt around yourself to cover the breast.


Trivia: Breast feeding in public is expressly protected by law in 43 states.
