August is National Breastfeeding Month, and what better way to celebrate than to help new mothers make breastfeeding more comfortable for them?
The following are 3 ways to make breastfeeding more comfortable for new mothers:
Invest in a Good Nursing Pillow
Nursing pillows are an essential tool for new mothers who are breastfeeding. They are designed to support the baby and the mother while nursing and can make the experience more comfortable for both.
Get a Comfortable Nursing Bra
You should keep these factors in mind when choosing a comfortable nursing bra:
Size: Ensure that it is the right size. You should measure your bust and rib cage to get the right size.
Style: Make sure the nursing bra you choose is comfortable and stylish. There are a variety of styles to choose from, so you should take some time to find the right one for you.
Comfort: Ensure your nursing bra is comfortable to wear all day. Make sure that it won’t irritate your skin as well.
Fabric: A nursing bra should be made of a fabric that is comfortable and durable. You should also make sure that the bra is machine-washable.
Brand: You will want to choose a nursing bra from a well-known brand so that you can trust its quality.
Support: A good nursing bra will support your breasts, especially when they are full of milk. Look for a bra with good coverage that does not dig into your skin.
Fit: Finding a nursing bra that fits you well is crucial.
Use Breast Pads
Breast pads can help you feel more comfortable and confident while breastfeeding and help you avoid any embarrassing leaks. If you are interested in trying breast pads, talk to your doctor or lactation consultant to find out what type would be best for you.
