Breastfeeding discreetly

Breastfeeding is nothing to be embarrassed about. But when you're out and about, knowing what clothes to wear and feeding positions to use can help you feel more confident before you actually leave the house.

Clothes that work

  • Any tops that unbutton from the bottom. Stretchy tops that pull up. Two piece outfits if you're going somewhere special. You can now get trendy bras and tops that are made specially for breastfeeding.

Clothes that don't

  • Shirts that you have to unbutton - they make you feel really exposed.


Hints and tips

  • Jackets, shirts over a vest top and cardigans - these can be used as a screen and will cover almost everything!

  • Scarves and baby blankets are also good at keeping things under wraps.

  • Use a sling or a pouch - they make carrying the baby easier on your back and cover most of your breast as well.

  • Practise! The more you do it, the better you get at getting baby latched on quickly. You can do this without even leaving your living room!

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.

 

These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.

Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do.  We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here.  Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
