Here are the tricks that you would like to hear to breastfeed your child in winter!

Wear nursing shirts and comfortable warm clothes
I have used nursing shirts a lot with my two children. They are ideal to cover the back and kidneys while you breastfeed the baby.

Another good option is to use the one known as a nursing blanket: there are shawls, ponchos, aprons, shawls ... All of them designed to breastfeed on the street and stay as cold as possible. There are simple models and there are others that also have a wire semicircle so you can see your little one while you breastfeed.

Team up with baby carriers
Do you know that you can also feed it while you carry it in the baby carrier? If you are on the street and you are in a hurry or it has just started to rain, try breastfeeding while you carry it in your baby carrier and warm yourself with one of these warm blankets! Extra benefit: it offers you a few moments of privacy that never hurt.

By the way, don't forget about breastfeeding shirts when the weather is nice, they are also very practical and as comfortable as a nursing bra, you can even put the discs on without moving!

Any place is good to breastfeed your little one
Here the rule prevails: no shame. I have to confess that with my first child I had more qualms aboutbreastfeed anywhere, With the second no longer! What I want to tell you with this is that if, for example, you are in the supermarket and it is time to take it, one of those that takes you by surprise, no going out, you can make a hole between the boxes of cookies and the cereal shelf, lean on a bit and give him the shot right there.

Once you try it, you will see that it is not so bad. And when I say supermarket, I also mean stationery, optical, shopping center or any other surface that has a pleasant temperature.

Use patches and creams to take care of your nipples
Extreme temperatures do not favor the skin, even less that of the nipples. So having some hydrogel patches and a good specific breast cream will be of great help to maintain hydrated skin in winter,soothe the irritated or cracked nipple and do not hurt when the baby latches onto your breast.
