Many women hesitate to breastfeed their babies in public. You can breastfeed your baby comfortably and discreetly, however, without hiding in a restaurant or store bathroom. Many department stores now offer comfortable lounges which can accomodate nursing mothers. You can also breastfeed in public if you follow these tips.
* Throw a baby blanket or shawl across your shoulder, covering your baby, then begin nursing.
* Use an infant sling that has extra material that can be thrown over your breastfeeding baby, offering more privacy.
* Wear clothing especially designed for breastfeeding moms. There are many styles of tops and dresses that have openings discreetly placed for easy access when nursing a baby.
* Wear two-piece outfits, such as shirts and pants, and simply lift your shirt only high enough to allow baby access to your breast. Your baby's body will cover any bare skin you might be showing.
