Jamie’s 7 Best Tips for Breastfeeding Comfortably in Public + a Giveaway!

Jamie’s 7 Best Tips for Breastfeeding Comfortably in Public + a Giveaway!

Nursing in public can be hard, especially if you’re still getting the hang of it! But there’s no reason to feel like you need to pump a bottle every time you leave the house. You can make the process easier by planning ahead (and investing in the right products). After nursing four children—and going through all the ups and downs of the experience—here are my seven best tips for breastfeeding comfortably in public.

Wear the Right Type of Clothing

This is not the time to be wearing your tightest turtleneck—even if you look fantastic in it. If you know you’re going to need to nurse while you’re out, choose clothing that allows for easy access to the girls. Invest in a few great nursing tanks and bras—be sure to try them on before purchasing. And don’t worry—there’s no need to spend hundreds of dollars in nursing-specific clothing. In fact, you probably have items in your closet that are perfect for public nursing! A button down or cardigan layered over a nursing tank works just as well as any expensive top.

Look for a Comfortable Space

If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that comfort often equals successful breastfeeding. When you’re stressed or anxious, it’s more difficult for your baby to latch (and let’s be honest, you just won’t enjoy the experience as much!). Luckily, so many places are now nursing-friendly—and offer private rooms for mothers who want to breastfeed (I’ve even noticed pods while traveling in the airport!). And remember to think outside of the box—sometimes, a semi-private bench or seat will give you the right amount of quiet space to bond with your baby. There’s even an app that can help you find nearby nursing rooms and lactation pods (over 5000 of them across the country!).

Invest in a Nursing-Friendly Carrier or Sling

With a little practice, you can breastfeed in most baby carriers or slings (I know—I’ve done it!). The biggest benefit to this? You can be hands-free (and get some multi-tasking done). Before purchasing any carrier, do your research. Look online and talk to other moms. I used to love breastfeeding my littles in an Ergobaby carrier (PS, we're giving one away!). Nursing or not, as a new mom you're going to find that wearing your baby is super convenient (and an excellent way to fit in some snuggle time!).

Buy a Great Cover

After my third daughter was born, I was the mother of two toddlers and a newborn (I know….eeek!). It was a handful, to say the least. And every time I sat down to nurse, my older daughters would—naturally—look for attention (or get themselves into trouble). I didn’t want to confine us all to the house, so I searched for a cover that would offer full coverage and allow me to nurse comfortably while in public. When I couldn’t find something perfect, I created the first Covered Goods® prototype. The next day, I took all three girls to Disneyland and was—for the first time ever—able to breastfeed with ease on a park bench! Women were literally coming up to me in the park and asking where I had purchased my cover. At that moment, I knew I was onto something.

A Covered Goods® cover is the perfect product for any new (or even seasoned!) mother. Our covers are soft and stretchy, and offer full 360 degree coverage. The won’t bunch or ride up—ideal for moms who will be nursing on the go. We even hear from women who say they use our covers for privacy while pumping!

Practice, Practice, Practice

Like anything else, there’s a learning curve to nursing in public. And as they say, practice makes perfect! Once you’ve got your carrier and your cover, spend some time using them at home. You’ll figure out a routine that feels comfortable, and it will be that much easier when you decide to step outside.

Look for the Right Kind of Support

There’s no shame in asking for help—particularly when you’re working on breastfeeding. Ask for a lactation consult in the hospital and research a local consultant near you. It always helps to have someone nearby who’s educated in case you run into any difficulties.

Know Your Rights

Unfortunately, there are always going to be people who make comments. By knowing the law, you can support the rights of breastfeeding mothers everywhere. Forty-nine states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands have laws that specifically protect women breastfeeding in public or private. Surround yourself friends and family members who share the same ideals as you, and don’t be afraid to educate those who are uninformed. Because now that you’re a mom, it’s your baby’s health that matters most—not what other people think.

Whether you’re a new mom or one who’s more experienced, we’d love to hear what you have to add! And don’t forget to browse our shop page to see what Covered Goods® pattern will work for you. XO

My biggest challenge still after a year of experience is keeping myself comfortably covered when nursing in public! My baby has always hated blankets over her face and wiggles a lot and I prefer to pull my shirt down rather than up to expose my stomach. Fortunately she doesn’t need to eat as often as she used to!

My biggest struggle with nursing is that I’m a non-stop kind of person but couldn’t get the carrying and baby nursing thing down. So I just resorted to pumping pretty much full time. I miss that snuggle time with baby but I just always have a lot going on so a bottle on the go & pumping was easier. I Loved your suggestions though & I want to try out the carrier nursing method ?

Nursing in public is not easy but my technic is ’don’t care’… means I don’t care who’s watching, who has any opinion about it… i was nervous at the begining, but since nothing been seen while nursing i just take it easy and smiling who ever look at me… no one feels unconfortoble because I make the situation as it is the most normal situation.

The hardest part of breastfeeding in public for me was getting the courage to do it the first time. My awesome supportive husband helped me get settled on a bench and made sure I was completely covered. After the first time, it wasn’t scary anymore. And you start to realize that most people don’t care that you’re nursing, even if you feel like everyone is staring at you at first.

I’m a first time mom soon to be. I haven’t done any breastfeeding yet. I really wanna be comfortable to breastfeed in public and my mind at the moment wants to do it. I’m afraid when the day comes to it I have a feeling I will shy out of it and be embarrassed especially knowing that lots of people don’t like seeing it done in public. I’m sure hope when the day comes that I will not care about people’s opinions and my feelings and and just care about feeding my baby. Thank you for the info I think finding a comfortable place is very important for you to succeed like you mentioned.

The biggest challenge for me was the fact that I preferred to stay covered but my boys would be so distracted by kicking the cover or having it touch their heads that they would get really fussy and I’d have to lose the cover all together to get them to nurse. I was always so worried I was making other people uncomfortable.

Great article!! The thought of breastfeeding in public brought so much anxiety to me before my sweet babe was born. All of my friends with little ones would just use a blanket on hand, which typically resulted in them becoming exposed. Because of Covered Goods, I have developed confidence in feeding my son in public knowing the goods will actually be covered! Thank you!!

None of my babies liked to be covered, which is why my covered goods cover was so awesome. They couldn’t whip the cover off at any moment because they wanted to see what was happening. This gave me privacy and they ate more attentively because they were not able to pull the cover and look around as easily. I also really appreciated it covering my back because no one wants those extra side pouches showing while you nurse. Nursing can be hard enough to then be self conscience about your body as the same time.

To be honest my biggest challenge with breastfeeding in public is over-stimulation! I’m very shy and introverted, so being around people is already stressful, but trying to nurse and connect with my baby while in public is even more so. So I get stressed and over-stimulated and baby picks up on that, lol.

With my first, I never imagined I would breastfeed in public. It made me nervous. But when the second came along I decided that I needed to get over it. Otherwise we would never leave the house. I borrowed a covered goods nursing cover from a friend and it was a total game changer. I felt totally at ease nursing anywhere I wanted in front of anyone. It is other people’s issue if they are uncomfortable with me nursing in public, not mine. Covered foods made me confident and comfortable! I am now expecting my third and am in need of a nursing cover of my own. (My sweet friend needed hers back ?). Can’t wait to pick my very own

As I prepare for the birth of my 2nd child this summer, I realize that I will probably have to nurse in public as I will become a SAHM with a 2.5 year old as well. I nursed my firstborn for 15 months, but worked full-time starting when he was 10 weeks old so he took a bottle while I pumped at work. I was never keen of the idea of nursing in public as I am modest person, not because I cared ehat others thought. But with advice like this, I think I can attempt and be comfortable nursing in public with baby boy #2 ???
