Babywearing while breastfeeding: how babywearing can support breastfeeding

Wearing your baby and breastfeeding are two valuable ways to build a close bond with your child. But did you know that these two practices can complement each other? In this blog post, we’ll explore how babywearing can support breastfeeding and how you can integrate babywearing into your breastfeeding routine.

How can babywearing support breastfeeding?

1. promoting skin-to-skin contact: Babywearing allows you to maintain a close physical connection with your baby, which can stimulate the release of oxytocin, the so-called ‘bonding hormone’. This in turn can promote milk production and breastfeeding.

2. support milk production: The physical closeness and skin contact during babywearing can help to stimulate lactation and support milk production. Regular wearing can therefore help to strengthen the breastfeeding relationship between you and your baby.

3. convenient breastfeeding on the go: Babywearing allows you to breastfeed your baby discreetly wherever you are. Whether you’re shopping, going for a walk or travelling – you can simply take your baby out of the sling and breastfeed without having to go anywhere in particular.

Tips for carrying while breastfeeding:

1. choose a sling or ring sling that allows breastfeeding: opt for a sling or carrier that allows you to breastfeed in an ergonomic position without having to remove the baby from the sling. A sling with a loose weave or a special breastfeeding position can be helpful.

2. practise breastfeeding in a sling: Before you go on public outings, practise breastfeeding in a sling at home. This gives you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the technique and ensure that you and your baby are comfortable with it.

3. be flexible: Breastfeeding in a sling sometimes requires a little patience and practice, especially if you are doing it for the first time. Be patient with yourself and your baby and be prepared to try different positions to find out what works best for you.

4. keep warm and comfortable: Make sure you keep yourself and your baby warm and comfortable while you are in the sling together. Wear appropriate clothing to protect you from the cold and make sure your baby is well supported and wrapped up.

5. enjoy the closeness and bonding: Carrying and breastfeeding are not only practical measures, but also offer precious moments of closeness and bonding between you and your baby. Use this time to strengthen the bond and create precious memories. Babywearing while breastfeeding is a wonderful way to support breastfeeding while maintaining a close bond with your baby.

Conclusion

By choosing the right carrying technique and being open to new experiences, you can seamlessly integrate babywearing with breastfeeding and maximise the benefits of both practices.
