When most of us envision a mom breastfeeding her baby we picture her sitting down and tenderly cradling her child. But whether you have other children who need your attention, have to multi-task or have a baby with acid reflux, sometimes the most practical way to breastfeed your baby is while standing.
Breastfeeding while standing poses an obvious safety issue. What if the baby falls? How can you be sure that your baby won’t take a tumble while you are cruising through the supermarket or are chasing after a toddler?
Fortunately there are a number of fantastic baby carriers, wraps and slings on the market today which are specifically designed to allow you to safely feed your baby while standing. Most include instructions on how you can safely do so, but here is a quick run down ofhow you can feed your baby in a wrap and in a carrier.
Take your baby and gently push them downwards so that her thighs meet her torso (make sure that your baby stays vertical). Then reach under the shoulder strap and lift your breast to your baby’s mouth (you should still be able to see your bub’s nose and mouth). You can stretch the shoulder strap of the fabric over yourself for some extra privacy or, if you are wearing a Peachymamatank ortee, you will be able to feed while showing little to no skin to anyone but your baby.
Start by adjusting the side webbing buckle so that there is a bit of extra slack. Then slowly lean forward to support your baby with one hand and lift your shirt with the other. Reach beneath the shoulder strap to lift your breast to your baby’s mouth (if she is too high, you can adjust the waist belt). If your carrier comes with a nursing cover, this will give you some extra privacy.
Breastfeeding while standing may come easily to some moms, but the majority of us will need a bit of practice which leads us to our first tip:
