We’d like to think breastfeeding in public is a judgement-free zone, but unfortunately, that’s not often the case. All breastfeeding moms have likely experienced the same moment of panic: You’ve finally gone back out into the world and suddenly baby is hungry. Have you ever wanted to feed baby by the public pool, in your airplane seat, or in a restaurant but felt too self-conscious? Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to destigmatize breastfeeding in public so even those shy moms among us won’t be made to feel uncomfortable by negative side eye from onlookers or rude comments?
Breastfeeding in public has become a hot topic of conversation, and we’re overdue on a full-fledged 365-days-a-year Boobolution to support women who exercise their right to breastfeed in public. While we wait for everyone to get on board, Meg Resnikoff, is here to help push things along. Resnikoff, the cofounder of What’s Up Moms has created a funny and totally relatable tutorial to provide moms with essential tips for breastfeeding in public.
We know the idea of nursing out in the open can be nerve-racking, but Resnikoff’s dos and don’ts video will help empower and inspire moms to breastfeed wherever and whenever they want. So before you stress yourself out looking for a secluded location, next time, stay right where you are and give step four a try!
