Tips for Breastfeeding Mothers

One: Have the right Chair

Arm rests on both sides
Straight backed chair
Not too deep
The right height so that the feet can be flat on the ground
Lift the feet on a rest so that the knees are parallel to the
the hips or slightly above

Two: Cushion for Mum and a Cushion for Bub

Place a cushions at the small of your back
And place the feeding friend under bub
Make sure your feeding friend is snuggled close to you

Three: Take note of the shoulders

Check that you aren’t slumping
Drop the shoulders and square them to the front

Four: Remain mindful of the neck

Swap sides and avoid over stretching the sides of the neck
Take time to look up to the ceiling to counter-stretch the back of the neck

Five: Routines for Comfort

Make a habit of having some water nearby and stretching the body after feeding.
