Happy Travelling with a Breastfed baby!

Happy Travelling with a Breastfed baby!

My little one has been on exclusive breastfeed since he was born. We went for our first foreign trip with him to Bali when he was just 4 months old. Before planning this trip, I was very nervous about how I would feed him.  

 

But, now I feel that travelling with a  breastfed baby, especially an  exclusively breastfed one is probably the least amount of effort you could make in ensuring that your baby is well fed.

 

I have also learned a few things that made me more comfortable and I would love to share them with you here:

 

Carry a scarf or a nursing cover everywhere :-

Your baby can demand anytime, anywhere. My baby used to demand mostly  during my mealtime and I had to run to the car or the nearest clothing store that had trial rooms.

 

Don't feel shy :-

Please do not hesitate to breastfeed your baby if you are in a public place. Just go, grab your scarf and find a corner. It is the most natural thing and no one will judge you. I have literally breastfed my baby on the beach while covering him with my scarf.

 

Eat Right :-

To ensure that your milk supply remains plentyfull, eat properly, drink adequate milk, rest and don't overdo.

 

Stay hydrated :-

Drink at least 3-4 litres of water daily. Water is very important to maintain the quantity of your milk supply.

 

Choose your outfits wisely :-

And most importantly, I chose to wear low neckline and button down dresses for the trip as feeding the baby is very easy in them. T-shirts with shorts or skirts were also comfortable. So, think before you choose your vacation outfits.

 

I hope these few points will be of some help to you if you are planning a trip very soon.

Have an awesome holiday and Happy Breastfeeding!
