How to Prepare for Successful Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is one of the precious things that you can give to your baby as a mother. However if you are a first time mom, you may have lot of questions and doubts in your mind when you are pregnant. It was same with me. Even I doubted about latch and I was in doubt about enough supply.

However, I am proud to say that I could breastfeed my son for 2 years. I only started weaning when he reached 2 years. However, breastfeeding is not easy if you do not get support from others. I remember there were days which I couldn’t find a nursing room when we were out. As a first time mom, I also didn’t have any idea on preparing for travelling with baby as he needed frequent nursing. It was much struggle, but with few steps you can make it really interesting and don’t forget breastfeeding will not only give your baby all the necessary nutrients, that will also enhance bond with your child. That is so precious!

Get the support from others

You need to spend time with your baby if you breastfeed. I experienced that I could not do some of the daily tasks simply because I have to nurse my child. This is where you need support, understanding and encouragement from your family members. This is where your partner can help you in raising your child. He can encourage you positively and he can help you in other household chores.

Prepare a place to Nurse

It is better to have a comfortable place for nursing your child. A comfortable chair is fine and keep a stool as a footrest if need. You can include nursing chair in your baby’s nursery and don’t forget to keep some snacks, nipple cream and even nipple pads in a reachable distance. A TV and few magazines are great to keep too.

Finally, Breastfeeding is so precious. But it needs support and help from others. You may feel stressful sometimes. But, with better preparation, you will be able to give the most precious thing to your baby once he or she is born.
