How breastfeeding makes life easier for mom

Going Out

Breastfed babies are incredibly portable, particularly in the first six months or so before they become mobile and before they are eating solids.

Breastfeeding moms can travel light. It will take less time to pack the diaper bag – all you need is a diaper & wipes, and perhaps a change of clothes for baby. I keep a couple of diapers, wipes and a change of clothes for baby in a backpack or hip pack (which doubles as my purse), but I don’t even take these with me if I’m going on a short shopping trip. I leave the bag in the car, put money and keys in my pocket and baby in the sling, and we’re off. For longer trips we’ll take the bag and sometimes a stroller.
