In the early days it can seem a bit daunting to go out and about with your little one and the idea of breastfeeding in public places can be difficult to overcome. However, try to remember most people won’t be bothered or even notice that you are feeding your baby.
To build your confidence, whilst getting support and tips from other mums, why not come along to one of our Breastfeeding Buddy groups and breastfeed outside your home for the first time. To find out where and when your nearest group is visit our Facebook page.
Don’t forget, the law is also on your side and you can breastfeed wherever you want to. The Equality Act 2010 says it is discrimination to treat you unfavourably because you are breastfeeding. Further information about your rights to breastfeed can be found at Maternity Action.
