5 Tips for Nursing Baby Over the Holidays

December 1, 2016

stock-photo-20739855-blue-christmas-baubles-and-snowflakesLet’s face it, the holiday season is a wonderful time of year, but it can also bring added stress. Combine that with nighttime feedings, sleep deprivation and being around relatives who many not be used to breastfeeding, and new challenges can arise. Stay on track breastfeeding during this busy season with these five helpful tips.

  1. Do not skip feedings: During the holidays, there is so much going on — shopping, wrapping, cooking, visiting with friends and family — that it’s possible to get distracted and skip a feeding. Missing feeding cues can lead to problems such as plugged ducts, nursing strikes or inadvertent weaning, and even mastitis. Be sure to put you and baby first, pay attention to feeding cues, even with all of the bustling activity that may be happening around you.
  2. d4009%2520nursing%2520zoom__43779-1464723858-500-750Ask for help: There are many tasks that can be delegated. Accept any offers of help from your partner, parents, and friends. If they don’t think to ask, let them know that you need assistance. If the extra hands do not cover everything, think about skipping the cookie baking this year. Wrap gifts but leave off the bows. Make sure someone else hosts your holiday dinner or party this season.
  3. Take care of yourself: Stress takes a toll. Remember to eat well and get as much rest as possible. Holiday sweets are yummy, but everything is best in moderation. Your body needs healthy food and plenty of fluids for breastfeeding. Don’t let yourself get rundown, so be sure to sleep when baby sleeps.
  4. Dress for success: This is the most social time of year, which means you will likely find yourself nursing in front of family members, friends and possibly co-workers. Feel confident that you are doing the best for your baby, and do not feel intimidated by the fact that others may not be used to being in the company of breastfeeding mothers. You may feel most comfortable selecting a nursing dress for your holiday dinner or party. Nursingwear enables you to breastfeed comfortably, conveniently and discreetly, without showing any skin or needing to wrestle with your clothes. Nursing tops and nursing dresses feature hidden openings so your nursling can latch on easily, and you can feed her while remaining covered. This helps you relax more while feeding, which helps your milk flow more easily, and in turn makes your baby happy.
  5. Sneak away: Do not hesitate to slip away to a private room if you or baby are becoming too distracted by the crowds. In fact, needing quiet time with baby may be a good excuse if you yourself want to take a break. It can be tiring to be around the added activity and social crowds that the holiday bring.

Most importantly, we at Milk Nursingwear hope you enjoy this holiday season. It’s a beautiful time to appreciate all the special people in your life, especially that new little one!
