The Benefits of Using Breastfeeding Chairs
Having a newborn means one thing, frequent feeding! Keeping your little one’s tiny tummies full can seem like a never-ending task as they digest milk quickly and therefore require multiple feeding sessions. Whether you're an expecting parent or a nursing mother, you might be thinking about introducing a breastfeeding chair to your home. If you're confused about whether you should opt for a breastfeeding chair, or not, take a look at some of the benefits, and you'll decide in no time that it's a worthy investment.
Nursing newborns is a time-consuming process, and it can become quite tiring, which is why as a breastfeeding mother, you need a comfortable spot to feed your child. A breastfeeding chair provides you with the right amount of comfort and support to make it easier to feed, and it can become a dedicated and private spot for you and your baby to spend meal time together. The chair can come with padded arms and legs, and you can even dress it up with a handwoven blanket or a cushion to make the space even more comfortable for feeding.
Selecting a chair is a difficult choice as there are so many options available depending on your budget and personal preference. You can select a chair that reclines 360-degrees, swivels and even comes with a footrest or ottoman so you can be comfortable during the feeding session.
Alternatively, you can also select a rocking chair that moves back and forth, making it easier to comfort and lull your child to sleep once they have been fed and burped. Be sure to take a look at multiple options so you can find the best one to suit your needs. For example, a wider chair is better suited for nursing twins, and you can even spend some time picking out high tech performance fabrics for ease of cleaning. When it comes to fabrics, you can also select chairs in unique styles with different designs and color palettes to tie in your room's décor seamlessly.
Create A Calm Environment
By introducing a breastfeeding chair to your baby's nursery or feeding space, you can create an entire setup to ensure you have everything at hand while breastfeeding, meaning you don't have to get up during a feed and disturb your baby's mealtime. You can even place a small table next to your chair with burping cloths, tissues, water and snacks for you in case you get peckish.
Additionally, keep a light source at hand, such as a small table lamp for late-night feeding. It's easier for you to get your baby to sleep with dimmed lighting as soon as they have been fed. Whether you’re feeding your baby or simply cuddling them before their naps, you should ensure your breastfeeding chair is placed in a quiet area that creates a sense of calm and tranquility for your baby to fall asleep.
