Introduction:Mothers of newborns can't learn all there is to know about their new baby and breast feeding, so any tips can be thoughts to ask your doctor next visit. Breast feeding is not always accomplished without some professional help from your health care provider which should direct you to ask any questions you have.
Being careful about your diet is as important when you breast feed your newborn as it was when you were pregnant. Some high fiber foods can affect the breast milk and create some gaseous problems for your infant too. Balance is always a good tip to eat properly for your baby and your breast milk supply. Especially avoid malt products such as malted milks which can ultimately create a diaper rash for some babies. Some doctors might encourage a beer to increase milk production, however discuss all questions with your primary obstetrician before beginning new routines.
When the supply of breast milk comes in it can be painful to do even the most usual exercises until the baby is fed. Plan your exercises around your breast feeding so your routine is kept and with comfort too.One of the most wonderful benefits of breast feeding is the nursing baby helps the fundus, the crown of the uterus, regain tone very quickly.This is an interior exercise done automatically while mothers breast feed their baby.
Buy some good supportive nursing bras.These are specially made bras that have a flap over the entire breast and nipple for ease of breast feeding so disrobing is not necessary. You might consider wearing them for the length of time you will be nursing your baby. Give yourself some extra room in the cup of the bra since you probably will have some pads inside the cup to keep them dry in between breast feedings.
Look at your activity for the day and plan your clothing for breast feeing your newborn. If you are going to be out of the house most of the day, rely on front opening tops or blouses. Try not to be discouraged if you cannot get into the skin tight clothes you wore prior to getting pregnant. Give yourself some time before you attempt to slide into pre pregnancy attire so you don't get frustrated. Think comfort and functionality before you dress for the day's activities.
It is widely acceptable to nurse your baby in public when you are afforded privacy. This can be accomplished by draping a receiving blanket over the shoulder where you will be breast feeding. Make your clothing suitable for that event to take place without drawing too much attention to your activity. When you are relaxed your baby will be also as you breast feed. Both parents can be a part of the planning to breast feed the newborn baby. Fathers can help new mothers breast feed in privacy by encouragement and giving suggestions too.

Excellent tips. Great job.
All of these are great breast feeding tips, nice job! (as usual)
Some new mothers may find that their breasts easily become engorged, possibly from an excessive amount of estrogen. A highly engorged breast may cause the nipple to flatten. Therefore, it may be necessary for the mother to place a rubber nipple over her own so that the baby has something to grab onto with his mouth. (I speak from personal experience.)
You nailed this list!
