It’s often spoken of as the most natural thing in the world for new mums, but those first days of breastfeeding can be filled with awkwardness, uncertainty and worries about “doing it right”.
Here’s some of the things new mums might be thinking, as they attach baby to boob – and hope for the best!
1. So, um, I just get my boob out in front of everyone?!
Look, you do. Some women are happy to pop it out with little ado and don’t care about the audience. Others are keen to have a little privacy and keep things under wraps.
Both approaches are great, and in fact ANY approach to breastfeeding is fantastic, if it’s in line with what a new mum wants.
Get your boob out – in whichever way you like. It’s your right to feed your baby, so start as you mean to go on.
