- as it to do feeding in public places?
At last came true! This little man was born. You are ready to be with it day and night. You give all the most necessary to the baby. But nevertheless there is a wish to get out more often of the house, without being separated at the same time from the kid. How to be with feeding? To feed directly on the street?
many mummies face this question. The fact of feeding in the public place can confuse and seem in general unacceptable. Mother with horror represents curious passersby and reproaches of strangers. It is a pity that in our society the wrong relation to feeding was created by a breast. Many consider process of feeding very intimate and inadmissible in public. But it only beliefs of the people who are not understanding the essence of feeding by a breast. And if you do not want to run home with the kid shouting for hunger - let`s together try to adapt to feeding a breast on the street.If you hesitate of
First of all needs to be forgotten that you are on the street. The most important - your kid wants to be put to a breast. If you only begin to feed - constraint is quite natural to you. Over time there will be more self-confidence and correctness of the actions.
First that should be made - to get baby - a baby sling - a special sling for carrying babies. This thing will be irreplaceable for you where you would not be. Pay attention to baby sling model. If it is equipped with a long rag - you will be able to cover with it the kid and the breast. In general when feeding in a baby sling any passerby will not guess that you do, especially if you directly behave and will be completely relaxed. Aspiration to hide in the remote place, to be bent, bend only strengthen attention of strangers!
Before an exit to the street put on so that it was most convenient to feed the kid. It is possible to consider several options:
- the Jacket with deep cut. You can cover the top part of a breast with a baby sling rag
- the Bra for feeding thanks to which it is not necessary to get completely a breast
- the Spacious shirt. You will be able to undo a button and to feed the kid, having covered with a rag of a baby sling or having chosen the relevant provision in a baby sling
- If on the street it is cool - the jacket on the size - two will approach more to cover the kid and your breast from inquisitive glances
- you can just turn away from passersby and choose not crowded alleyka, walking quietly to feed on which
- It is possible just to sit down on a bench and, having crossed the legs, (to these having raised up the child) to feed it
- you can carry with itself an easy wide scarf which always is possible to be covered during feeding
- Take with himself the fellow traveler who will be able always to block you himself during feeding.
Where to you will be able always to be helped?to
If on the street it is cold, the rain went or there was any other undesirable atmospheric trouble - look round around. Nearby can appear:
- the Children`s policlinic, in many of which is the room of the Healthy child. Even if such room did not appear - you can feed the child in any office which is graciously provided to you or even in the hall. In such places usually there are mainly women who will always understand you.
- Drugstore. If at present does not treat the period of epidemics - you can safely seize this opportunity, but try to choose a drugstore where there is no congestion of people.
- of Cafe, restaurant. Ideal option. You can sit down at a little table (having chosen the most suitable) and to quietly feed the kid. If you did not manage to take the place rather comfortable in your opinion - it is possible to be fenced off from people, having put a bag on a table.
- of the Taxi. I think, any driver who is not burdened with work with pleasure will provide to the woman a back seat of the car for so important action.
- Children`s shop. Here will definitely not be able to refuse to you. Besides, you can just enjoy studying of the range of toys and even to get something brand new, having pleased with it itself and the baby.
All know that the feeding mother has to feel most comfortably. Therefore where you would not be, try not to make the following mistakes:
- Tension. The fear in itself to be convicted of something obscene and intensity from mother affects efficiency of feeding. Development of oxytocin an organism decreases and milk is worse emitted. do not tear off
- the child from a breast if someone approaches you. Keep calm. The kid shouting from misunderstanding of the events will draw with the crying attention of much bigger number of people. do not try to feed with
- the child as it is convenient only to you from a position to be unnoticed. Consider that the kid can not agree to manipulations, unfamiliar for it. Choose the most comfortable pose for both.
that you do not make anything immoral! To strengthen the confidence - you leave the house with the person close to you who will be able always to encourage you.
Try to communicate with the feeding mothers, together with them to walk. When you do everything together - the confidence in correctness of your actions will increase.Tell
to future mothers about feeding by a breast, you impart experience with them. Perhaps, your council of skilled mother very much will help someone in the future.
Remember the known pictures of the feeding mothers - Madonna and child, Madonna Lita (Leonardo da Vinci). Feeding by a breast in those far times found reflection in art. Today we can admire this spirituality with which they are impregnated.
do not hesitate to represent breastfeeding by natural process, not demanding any serious preparation. The you will be simpler to treat it - the it will be easier for you to seize skills imperceptibly to feed the kid in any place.
If we are able to convince ourselves of it, then over time we will be able to create the healthy relation of society to feeding by a breast in the public place.consultant for breastfeeding
