Breastfeeding outside your home doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety. Create a calm and modest approach to nursing in public.

Step 1: Plan ahead
Plan your trip ahead of time to ensure you are wearing garments that will allow easy access to your breast with minimal exposure.

Step 2: Watch for hunger cues
Watch for your baby’s cues for being hungry before the hunger increases and leads to crying or pulling at your clothing.

Nursing your baby just before you leave home increases the time you can stay out before needing to feed them again.

Step 3: Find a comfortable spot
Find a comfortable place to sit with your baby.

Use designated nursing areas in stores. Dressing rooms are also good places to nurse.

Step 4: Hold your baby close
Hold your baby close to you as you expose the breast for nursing. This will shield your breast from any onlookers.

Step 5: Wrap the garment around yourself
Once your baby has latched onto the breast, wrap your sweater, jacket, or shirt around yourself to cover the breast.

Did You Know?
Breastfeeding in public is expressly protected by law in 43 states.
