HOW TO CRE­ATE AN IDEAL EN­VI­RON­MENT CON­DUCIVE TO NURS­ING:

Mother & Baby - - BREASTFEEDING -

The first and fore­most fac­tor to con­sider while breast­feed­ing is to find a com­fort­able po­si­tion. Use pil­lows to sup­port your back. Make sure you keep the baby’s re­quire­ments like di­a­pers and wipes handy so that you don’t need to run around. Breast­feed in a pri­vate, clean and quiet place with all the ne­ces­si­ties close by. Dim the lights so that if your baby falls asleep while breast­feed­ing, he is not dis­turbed. Dr Jayasee­lan says, “Al­ways keep a bot­tle of wa­ter and some food items nearby as breast­feed­ing can make one feel hun­gry and thirsty.” Make sure you wear clothes that open down in the front. It will give your baby easy ac­cess, while keep­ing you warm.
