If you read my recent article on How to Manage Household Chores With A Newborn, you will know that I tend to wear my baby around the house while doing other things.
Do you know why I do that?
Ermm.. Ya, she loves to be held a lot (or in opposite way, will cry once being put down).
And additionally, she nurses a lot.
And this happens NOT only in her newborn phase but throughout months when I exclusively breastfed her.
So to me, being able to breastfeed in a baby carrier gives a lot of convenience for both of us.
Let’s list them out.
For me: I don’t feel being strapped to bed or sofa for nursing all day long, and I can do other things and look after my elder child.
For my baby:
- she loves being snuggled close, so of course, she’s more than happy to be carried around
- easy access to breast all the time (so that she can nurse whenever she needs to).
And the bonus: breastfeeding in a baby carrier helps me to go through the hardest time of early weeks of breastfeeding, where my baby demanded to be rocked and walked all the time while nursing in the evening.
The benefit of being able to nurse in a carrier not only apparent in newborn phase. Even in the later phase, this skill will save you a lot of time because you can multitask while nursing.
That means: being able to do shopping without worrying where you should nurse later (no need to confine yourself in a nursing room while others are having fun shopping), traveling is so much easier with a nursing baby, and so on.
