Make "Breast is Best" for Mom, Too: 6 Simple Ways to Support, Show Love & Give Encouragement to Breastfeeding Moms!

Supporting and loving a breastfeeding mom is extremely important. It can be as simple as the following:

  • keep her water glass filled 
  • change diapers 
  • put Baby back to bed after a middle-of-the-night feeding  
  • offer to do laundry
  • clean the house 
  • go grocery shopping 

Doing these things will allow her to focus on breastfeeding and get some much needed rest! Moms often feel they have to immediately become the primary caretaker again, but this can be detrimental to her breastfeeding efforts.
