Let me first say that breastfeeding in a restroom is not my idea of breastfeeding in public. Breastfeeding in public means to nurse your baby wherever and whenever she is hungry.
Here are a few tips to make your experience more enjoyable:
- Do it gradually. Practice at home with family members first, then go to breastfeeding-friendly cafes and restaurants, ideally with other nursing friends, and then you will be so skilled that you will not be afraid of any public setting.
- Wear clothing that allows you to nurse discreetly: a nursing bra under a nursing top or a blouse that you can unbutton from bottom to top.
- Do not wait until your baby is crying to nurse her. Do it at the first signs of hunger (fists in her mouth, suckling sound or rooting). It is much simpler – and discreet – to nurse a quiet baby than a fussy one.
I hope this helps !
