Why I’m Not Afraid To Breastfeed In Public
The best products for you and your baby.
With a baby monitor, you can use your time flexibly, sleep peacefully at night and still know at all times that your baby is doing well.
A good breastfeeding pillow has several advantages, because it helps you not only to breastfeed, but also to fall asleep and is also suitable as a nest.
A diaper bag offers you a lot of storage space, so that you have everything you need for your baby on the go - from the changing pad to the bottle.
A pucksack gives your baby the feeling of security, like in the womb, and thus supports a peaceful and restful sleep.
Bicycle trailers can be used in combination with a baby seat shortly after birth. They are not only safer than child seats but also more comfortable.
A playpen can be very practical in everyday life! Which model is suitable for your needs, you can read in my guide.
The first bed accompanies your child for years. Fortunately, there are beds that grow with your child. I have made for you on the search for the best baby beds.
A stroller is a worthwhile purchase. But there are the most diverse models on the market. Find out which is the right one.
Radiant heaters provide your child with the necessary warmth when changing diapers or after bathing.
Side beds are very practical and offer both mother and baby a lot of advantages, because for babies, especially in the first months of life, it is reassuring to be able to sleep next to their parents.

I used to be so nervous with my first baby that I think I never nursed in public, but with my second one I just didn’t care any more ! And it’s funny, because I was also wrote a post about it, and where I was analizing why as a society we get to be upset with public nursing 🙂 Personally I think it’s because of the oversexualization of women’s body, and because of the generation of never nursed people, not used to the sight. And it’s very cultural too. Because et the end, baby needs to eat 🙂
I have been exclusively pumping since my son was born and he never took my breast. I think if he would have, I might have done it in public but would have tried to avoid it at all cost. I don’t frown upon it, I just don’t like being exposed to other’s and would do anything to avoid that. The moms that choose to do it are brave and I commend them! Although it is natural and shouldn’t be a big deal, it is and I couldn’t deal with the stares or mean comments.
I was awful at breastfeeding in public with my son. It was hard enough just being a first time mom and figuring things out. With my second, I almost had to as we were out of the house so often. Having experience under my belt, it was a lot easier. Now she’s 9mo and I try not to because she gets so distracted. I prefer a cover for my own privacy & comfort, but she wants to pull it away and look around (plus de-latch while doing this). So I’m back to searching out a quiet, private spot (my car, dressing room in a store, nursing room if available, etc) for those “must feed” moments when we’re out and about.
I don’t hesitate to breastfeed my son in public. I was little nervous when I did it first time. But after that I never really thought about that.
I got more used to it with time too 🙂
I do not breastfeed in public, but I am not against those that do. I just happen to be super organized(Im super OCD) and I breast pump so I always have a large supply of bottles at my disposal, but if my child was hungry I would in a heartbeat!
I totally BF in public and have never had a bad experience with any stranger. When I started, I think I worried more about what someone might dare say to me, and I spent too much time worrying about a cover or being discreet. Now I know that the most discreet thing is to just get your kid on the boob! They’ll quiet down, be still, and if you focus on them you’ll be just fine.
With practice, I often breastfeed my baby in most slings or wraps and the fabric of the baby carrier will cover the baby and my breast. So I can even walk around while breastfeeding
Thanks Kristen for sharing
I am always super impressed with women who can breastfeed while carrying their baby. It’s a mommy super-power for sure.
Today’s women are super powerful. And I really feel proud being a mom.
Well i honestly don’t understand why people care so much how someone else chooses to feed their baby.
You go, girl, it’s really none of anyone’s business. It’s nourishing your baby, it has nothing to do with anyone else.
