How to create a supportive breastfeeding environment

Six suggestions for creating a supportive nursing environment

  1. Find a peaceful atmosphere for nursing. Before beginning the feeding, unplug the phone, turn on relaxing music and do deep breathing. (Take four or five deep abdominal breaths.)
  2. If breastfeeding in public makes you uncomfortable, insist on your privacy and/or drape a light cover over your baby and your shoulder.
  3. Interact with friends and breastfeeding professionals who are supportive of breastfeeding. Do not let well-meaning friends and relatives who have different attitudes discourage you.
  4. Restrict visitors until you are comfortable.
  5. Be around other nursing mothers. Attend a postpartum exercise class and/or support group.
  6. Be sure your baby is positioned properly and allow enough suckling time.
