Hints and advice to help you continue breastfeeding for the new few weeks and beyond.
FeedGood's top tips for mums
- There are tons of ways you can make breastfeeding less noticeable when you're out and about, but don't feel you need to hide the fact that you're breastfeeding - in Scotland it is your legal right to breastfeed in a public space. Read our How to guide on "What to wear when you're breastfeeding" for some tips.
- Some mums prefer to express milk to take with them when they're out and about, and that's fine too. Our section on "Expressing breast milk and bottle feeding" is full of helpful information.
- Mums often get very thirsty when they're breastfeeding so make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day and keep some water nearby when feeding.
- If you're worried you aren't doing it right, don't panic. Speak to your midwife or health visitor about different positions which you could try to make breastfeeding easier for you and your baby. You can also find out more in our How to guide on 'Breastfeeding positions'.
