Our La Maman Wedge nursing pillow helps to provide new mums the support they need during breastfeeding sessions. Created specifically with the needs of mamas, the pillow curves around the body to support the baby and mum's arms during a feeding session. 

While we know that breastfeeding requires more than a pillow to be successful, we hope La Maman Wedge will help with the whole experience. To help you further succeed on your breastfeeding journey, here are some of the top tips we found for breastfeeding mums.


1. Ask for Help with Housework

Breastfeeding can be both exhausting and time-consuming. This is the time to call for backup. While you may not be letting many people into your home right now, don't be shy in asking your partner to do the heavy lifting in the housework and errands department. If you have older children, now is the time to encourage them to earn some pocket money and pick up some extra housework. 


2. Take Care of Your Skin

One of the most common complaints of breastfeeding mums is dry, cracked and irritated nipples. Find a purified lanolin nipple cream or ointment to help moisturise and nourish in between feeding sessions. 


3. Set up a Feeding Station

Breastfeeding can take up to 45 minutes a time. Set yourself up with anything you will need within arm's reach: Snacks, water, your phone, a nursing pillow (like La Maman Wedge) and a comfy blanket if you get cold. This is also a good time to select a Netflix series to start binging on.

4. Remember Which Breast to Start Feeding With

New mums have a lot on their sleep-deprived minds. A best practice when breastfeeding is to start the feeding session with the opposite breast you started with the last time. In order to help you remember, try putting a bracelet on the respective arm of the breast you just fed with first, or tie a ribbon or hair tie around your bra strap. 


5. Your Baby's Feet 

Weird, but true fact: Experts say that baby's feed better when their feet are touching something, as it can make them feel more secure. When you're feeding your little one, make sure their feet are pressed against your arm or a pillow

It Takes a Village

Ultimately, breastfeeding is a marathon not a sprint. Take it easy on yourself and don't compare your journey to others. Raising a child can take a village, so don't be afraid to enlist the help of a lactation consultant if needed.


Good luck with your feeding journey and remember that fed is always best.

Love, DockATot xx
